President Thomas S. Monson invited David Archuleta to visit him in his office March 27 when the teen singer was in Salt Lake City in preparation for a concert that evening in West Valley City, Utah. The "American Idol" runner-up and his parents, Jeff and Lupe Marie Archuleta, were visiting another office in the Church Administration Building when the invitation was extended to visit with President Monson. The young singer treated President Monson and his office staff to an impromptu concert in a board room in the Administration Building. He sang "How Great Thou Art" from the LDS Hymnal. One office staff member said the rendition was "phenomenal."
