Singer David Archuleta, who is currently serving a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, worked up to the last day before entering the LDS Missionary Training Center to give fans his new album, BEGIN.
The album features covers of popular songs such as “Angel” by Sarah McLachlan, “Bridge Over Troubled Water” by Simon and Garfunkel, “In the Name of Love” by U2, and a never-before-heard song co-written by David Archuleta, title “Broken.”
