Kris Allen Updates: More Rwanda, More Gala

5 Apr

Click here to watch video of short snippet of “Is It Over” (I HEAR THE SAX AT THE END!!) from the Best of the South Gala, as well as a snippet of Morgan Freeman’s speech (a tearjerker).  In this video, we finally get the answer to whether Katy was there.  I think she looks lovely!

Here is a blog post (Reports from Rwanda) that mention Kris and his trip to Rwanda. I included a shorg snippet, but make sure to visit the blog, as there is more!

Kris Allen, the currently reigning “American Idol”, and his bride, Katy, stayed at the house last week and performed at a dinner for President Paul Kagame. The 24-year-old rock star visited Rwanda to assess and support the work of Bridge2Rwanda and assist in our partnership with TOMS Shoes. (More about TOMS in a subsequent post.) Kris took off time from his work promoting his eponymous debut album, Kris Allen, which I enthusiastically recommend, but it does not compare to Kris finger picking in your living room and singing at the ceiling. His unaccompanied, unproduced vocals are incredibly rich with emotion,… the kind of emotive voice that can bring tears.

Videos of Kris’ performances from the Gala (I don’t think I’ve posted these yet (LOL):
