Little Pawns Is Now The Official Kris Allen Street Team!

We are so excited to tell you that Little Pawns is now

the OFFICIAL Kris Allen Street Team!



And it’s all because of you! Making flyers, calling radio stations to request “Alright With Me”, promoting Kris’s shows…each and every Little Pawn deserves credit for our official status.


Kris and his team saw what we were doing, what we have accomplished so far, and they wanted to show that they support and appreciate all of our hard work!


Our “Official” title means that we’ll be able to do some really cool Street Team contests with member-exclusive giveaways. We can utilize our creativity by being able to sell exclusive Little Pawns merchandise. Plus, we’ll be among the FIRST to get the latest news on Kris! Naturally, we will continue in our efforts to spread the word about Kris and his music.


You probably won’t notice many changes in the day-to-day business of Little Pawns. However, please be aware that our website address is now: www.littlepawns.com. (I'm sure you all noticed the kick-awesome new banner on the home page, though, right?)


Please note that being “Official” does not mean that we have a direct link to Kris. We are in contact with his management team only. Also, keep in mind that our activities reflect directly on Kris, so let’s make sure we continue to make him look good!


With the slew of new activities that we are going to be able to do, we will be needing all pawns on deck as much as possible. Any effort, no matter how small, is much appreciated. We'd like to remind everyone that we continue to accept donations, which you can find on the Little Pawns homepage. You are not required to contribute, but it would most certainly be appreciated!


Kris sings “Come together…over me”, and that is exactly what we did and what we will continue to do. So be proud, Little Pawns! Be proud! Let's all put our best foot forward to make this street team a success!


Be sure to “like” us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter @littlepawns!


Also, we would love to hear from you! Please feel free to leave any comments, suggestions or questions below!

Again, the 'negativity and distrust' comes from the fact that a group of us was, apparently, told that the goals of this group were different than they are.

We were told that you, too, were disappointed in Kris's management and wanted to sell Kris better than they do. Now you say that Kris's management is trustworthy and that we should listen to them.

Erin: Expressing disappointment and trying to understand why something has happened is no longer valid? If this group really does mean to be a place where Kris fans are supposed to genuinely come together, then perhaps actually working with people who are disappointed by Kris's management is more productive than dismissing them and telling them to leave.

Unless, of course, you don't mean any of that 'come together' stuff at all and you just want, well... pawns.

This is exciting news!

It is my hope that now that LP is official, we will get information about Kris's upcoming events much sooner, making it easier for us to promote them. In the past, many of Kris's appearances were not announced far enough in advance to allow for careful, organized promotion by the street team.

While I understand the concern voiced by some on here that Kris's management might attempt to control LP or limit our efforts in some way, I haven't seen any evidence of this since LP was formed, so I'm not sure why anyone would think it would happen now that LP is the official street team. Most labels and management companies WANT fans to get involved in promoting artists, so I don't know why 19/Jive would be looking to hinder LP's efforts.

I agree that his management has not been promoting Kris as well or as much that I think they should be, and that has been more than a little frustrating. But it seems to me that it is more likely that any street team's efforts would be successful if they had the support of management, rather than fighting against it. So I am cautiously optimistic that by becoming official, Kris's management will be open in listening to LP's suggestions -- which in turn might lead to better promotion of Kris. Which is still the goal of everyone here.

Sheri and luly: Thank you, we are counting on your support! We will definitely try to keep the events tab updated with as much detail as possible. We're not going to run KAO haha but we will definitely try to be as up to date as possible. We will be asking members to submit artwork for merchandise soon, so keep a lookout for that. p.s. The stuff on the merch shop is actually default designs from the widget that we are using to run the shop, we didn't decide to have "little pawns" on a T-shirt lol As soon as we get artwork submissions, we will get them to you as soon as we can! Thank you for your questions and we look forward to working with you.

Congratulations! This is great news.

At the risk of overstepping my boundaries here, I have to wonder how much (if at all) it helps anyone to announce they want to leave and then stick around to complain for several pages about how much this sucks.

I believe that Little Pawns achieving official status is amazing news! Think about it...how long have Little Pawns been around? Only a few months and look at all the noise we've made in that short amount of time. This goes to show that Kris and his management realize our efforts to promote Kris in any way we can and now they're teaming up with us to help us do that! Great job!

The part about knowing about shows ahead of time so there will be more time to promote them sounds good. I really hope that teaming with the management will help and won't just be an obstacle.

This is wonderful news!!! Thanks so much to all the mods for such hard work!! Looking forward to doing what I can to help the cause!!

Thanks for the reply Starr. I hope some artistic folks create some shirts (etc) that promote Kris. I don't really need "little pawns" on my chest, lol.

You mentioned knowing about events before the general public. Does that mean the LP site (and emails, I presume) will be more up-to-date than KAO? That site has been woefully neglectful. Or maybe you can take over updating KAO, because really - somebody over there has not been doing their job.

Thank you to everyone who has shown the excitement and happiness at this news that we Mods all share with you. For those with concerns, I ask that before you condemn this operation that you give it a chance. If you have constructive suggestions, by all means offer them but please do not simply spread negativity and distrust without foundation.

Sheri: The merchandise shop is up, but since we only recently became official, we haven't had a chance to ask members to submit artwork that we can sell. Since we are now official, management has given us permission to use Kris' image and likeness. We only need to submit it to them for approval, to ensure we are not violating intellectual property laws, and we are good to go. The MERCH section benefits only the street team because we will be getting the full revenue from it and it will help keep our operations running, but it will also open up more avenues in terms of promotion.
