KSL's exclusive program, "David Archuleta: Called to Serve," began to materialize last September when a crew spent four days with the singer and his companion, according to KSL. The crew interviewed Archuleta about his decision to serve a mission and his overall experience. KSL also followed Archuleta upon his return to the U.S. and followed him to a recent special devotional at the Missionary Training Center in Provo.

"I'm not afraid to show people who I am," Archuleta says in the program. "And I'm not afraid of what I believe. I'm not afraid for people to know that."
