Kris had an awesome surprise for a few lucky fans Sunday night when he suddenly announced that he was going to play a few songs on the Santa Monica Pier! Little Pawns was there, check out our playlist of videos and also this great report by another attendee, Yahoo!'s Lyndsey Parker.
This little clip from @JarettSays cannot be described, just go watch, trust us.
In this "giddy" Mix 94.1 interview from Pet-A-Palooza, Kris talks about Zorro chillin', what he likes to do in Las Vegas, and his excitement over the new music. Perhaps this is the pose they were talking about?
We told you last week about Kris's interview with Mario Lopez, the audio has been compiled here. Kris talks Idol, Camellia, writing songs, and married life - including an offer to sing at Mario's wedding!
An amazing time was had by all at Kris's Save The Music visit to Robert Frost Middle School last week, this article on the school district website is a must-read! More links and great photos are posted here.
Kris was one lucky man last Friday, when he and Torres took in the Bruce Springsteen show and met up with an old friend. Kris gave the show a rave review, we're looking forward to seeing how he was inspired by what he saw!
On Monday's agenda, Kris has graciously agreed to a new interview with Little Pawns. We'll be posting the results just as fast as we can, so stay tuned!
When A Heart Breaks
PBS has posted a "Celebrity Reflections" video about last year's National Memorial Day Concert, including a very emotional Kris after his performance. We are quite moved as well, Kris. The performance itself is also available on that page, we highly recommend reliving the grace and power with which Kris honored the troops.
We know some of you are holding out, but for those of us with no willpower, we want to know -What do you think about the new song previews? Come tell us about your favorites and surprises and thoughts in general.
We've been enjoying the fresh new look at KAO, Kris made note of his website redesign in this short video. Last week, subscribers to Kris's newsletter were treated to a fun behind-the-scenes look at the album photoshoot. Make sure you don't miss out, sign up for the newsletter here!
Until next time, Pawns, we'll leave you to ponder this age-old question:
