Hey there Pawns! We hope you had an awesome 4th of July week. Kris gave us a wonderful treat to make it that little bit more special by uploading a new video:
Kris’s cousin also taught us you’re never too young to stand for The Vision of Love:
Season 9 Idol alum, Didi Benami has some very nice things to say about Kris in this interview for suite101.
Hot 99.5 reminded us this week of Kris’s visit to the station at the end of May. If you missed it back then or want to revisit the interview and great performance of Monster, click on this link.
Thanks for all your interest and participation in our recent Pinterest Mission of the Week. We had a great discussion about it in our live chat last week. Keep it up – you’re doing a great job!
This week’s Mission, should you choose to accept it is: The Best of Kris on Twitter. We all know Kris is entertaining on twitter. This week we want to highlight the sometimes funny, sometimes thoughtful, always genuine tweets Kris has been dishing out to us over the years. Please send a link to or screencap of your favorite Kris tweets to our Twitter, Facebook or in the comments of our MOTW blog (linked above). We’ll be compiling your submissions on a Pinterest Board and elsewhere so that others can see why they should be following Kris on Twitter!
This radio station thinks that Thank You Camellia is the 2nd best album of 2012 so far! “Its appeal comes through in its sonic pleasantries: major-key melodies, relationship-focused lyrics, and Allen's charismatic delivery.” We couldn’t agree more! Check out the link above for the full review.
