Goals: In a post on Instagram David wrote he is usually gets ‘really lazy’ at the beginning of the year, but ‘This year I am sticking to a routine and aiming to get dem gains! 2023 I’m coming for you’
‘Something about the new year has always made me feel overwhelmed but this year I’m feeling motivated instead of moody.
‘This year I am sticking to a routine and aiming to get dem gains! 2023 I’m coming for you.’
One of his fans commented that the change in attitude has been showing.
‘It really seems like this last year has been huge for you, like you’re really becoming more comfortable in your own skin.’
Over the past few years, David has been open about his struggle to reconcile his Mormon faith with his sexual orientation.
Out: One fan noticed that the singer, who came out publicly as gay in 2021 wrote, ‘It really seems like this last year has been huge for you, like you’re really becoming more comfortable in your own skin’
The Movin’-After Hours singer came out publicly as gay in 2021, although he had told his family he was bi-sexual in 2014.
As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, that meant he could remain in good standing with the church, as long as he didn’t act on his feelings for other men.
In January 2022, David shared an emotional video on Instagram detailing part of his struggle, including thoughts of taking his own life, wondering if it were better ‘not being here and not existing?’
The 52-minute video received tens of thousands of likes from the artist’s supportive fans.
Purpose: David, who was brought up Mormon, said he had considered taking his life at at one time. Instead he has taken a step back from the church since coming out explaining on The Jennifer Hudson Show that he felt God told him ‘I created you like this’
In an appearance on the The Jennifer Hudson Show David said he had stepped away from the church.
‘After trying to talk to some of the church leaders and explain to them my situation, I realized there’s a lot of lack of understanding with LGBT people, because when I talked to them, the assumption was that LGBT people, all they think about was sex … and so people think it’s an evil thing.
‘So, you think, there must be something evil about me, no matter how hard you try.’

The Faith in Me singer said one day he ‘got on my knees and said ‘God, if you’re really there and you really have a purpose for me, please let me change….” and what I understood was God told me “David, need to stop asking me this. You’re asking me the wrong thing… I created you like this.”‘
The episode, which aired in November, was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Variety or Talk Show Episode. Winners will be announced March 30.
