“DAVID ARCHULETA: Called to Serve,” KSL and Excel Entertainment, $12.99, 22 minutes

One of the turning points in David Archuleta’s decision to serve a mission was a conversation with his mother.

She said singer Donny Osmond helped get her interested in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, “but the missionaries changed my life.”

It’s one of the experiences Archuleta and others, including his voice coach and people from his mission, share on the 22-minute DVD “David Archuleta: Called to Serve.”

The American Idol runner-up shares about his decision to serve a mission — something that he had always wanted to do — and how he has grown while serving in the Chile Rancagua Mission.

“I never thought I would have the guts to talk to so many different people,” Archuleta says as he explains how he’s never been more confident in his singing ability over his speaking skills — in English or Spanish.

Archuleta, who also served as a Zone Leader, shares how even a year and a half into his missionary service, he’s still more comfortable singing rather than just teaching and sings at practically every lesson he helps teach.

There are interviews with his mission president, a companion, fellow missionaries and those who he helped teach. There are shots of him and his companion at the market, riding the bus, welcoming people to church, teaching and walking the streets in their neighborhood to talk to people about the gospel of Jesus Christ.

“The gospel is all about change, and I didn’t realize I would be applying that to myself,” Archuleta said.

The DVD also shares his experience singing in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s Christmas concert in 2010 — a record year for ticket requests for the concert — with insights from former choir president Mac Christensen and Ron Gunnell, assistant to the choir president.

“Away from the press, away from fans, he still is a very humble young man,” Gunnell said. “He is always engaged in doing good.”

Archuleta described the experience as “a dream come true.”

There are also three videos of songs recorded in a combination of English and Spanish that were recorded at the Missionary Training Center and in Chile.

I love Janel, but her confidence seems to turn some ppl off. No matter what happens this season, I almost hope Val gets someone a little more "soft" or out of the norm to the type he usually gets. idk.

Its not because She is Val’s partner and I am a fan of hers but I just don’t see what “people” claim to be seeing. Like I don’t get it. I guess I look at things differently shrugs. Janel is amazing. Lol y’all be asking for things now and regret later. Soft might not be able to handle VALENTIN lol

Val is from NYC. Where people are blunt, straightforward, sassy, fiesty & brutally honest. They’re also passionate & loyal. Why would anyone choose vanilla? Leave boring to others.

Janel’s a girl from Hawaii. Locals are sarcastic, sassy & fiesty but also affectionate to those that are family. Smile greetings, hugs & cheek kisses are freely given & accepted. Why would you change her? She’s a perfect complement to Val.
