Archuleta started his singing career through the seventh season of “American Idol,” where he finished as a runner-up to “Always Be My Baby” singer David Cook.
In 2012, he starred in the TV5 mini-series “Nandito Ako” with Eula Caballero and Jasmine Curtis-Smith. He also released his cover of the Side A song “Forevermore,” under his album of the same name.
Archuleta recently came out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. He opened up on his struggles to find the balance between his religion and identity, hoping to reach those who are in the “same situation” as him. /ra
