Archuleta arrived in Los Angeles on Thursday, just hours after he stopped off on his Christmas tour in Utah, where he says fans bailed during a performance break as he talked about his upcoming final trip.

Part of the email read, “I don’t think the concert was the setting for that. We’ve got some pretty unhappy sponsors that I’m going to be dealing with today. And I hope for the remaining gigs, that won’t be allowed and just let them have a great Christmas experience.”
David said he could sense the nervousness in the crowd when sharing his story, and he was disappointed to see some fans leave, but that won’t stop him from doing so. Share his experienceBecause he knows the message can help save lives.
