To celebrate, Little Pawns would like to invite you all to come to our live chat two hours earlier than usual, at 8 PM Eastern for an Idol watch party! We can all flail together!!
Also kicking off on April 19th to further promote Kris’s Vision of Love and inspired by The Vision of Love music video, is the @KrisFansUnite charity drive, which focuses on Donors Choose requests related to anti-bullying initiatives. If you’re a Kris fan with a little money to spare, please consider a donation to this worthwhile cause.
This Saturday (April 21st) sees Kris set to perform at Mix 94.1’s Pet-A-Palooza. The event is at Star Nursery Field at Sam Boyd Stadium with musical performances from Kris, Matt Nathanson, Haley Reinhart, Graffiti 6, and Megan and Liz! If you’re attending, let us know. We hope you have a blast!
Hot AC WINK (96.9)/Ft. Myers, FL announced their “Spring Fling” last week. The concert on May 19th at Hammond Stadium will feature performances from Kris, along with Idol finalist Haley Reinhart, Scars on 45, Junior Doctor, and Jon McLaughlin.
