Alternative Kris Allen The Mint concert poster

So…here is the other design that I entered into the contest. I really prefer this one over the winner, but I knew it wouldn’t get chosen because it would give people who are not familiar with Kris the wrong idea about the kind of music to be expected at the show.

Having said that, I really do love this picture of Kris by FourThirteen Photography, so I made a couple of prints for my own enjoyment :) It’s also been the wallpaper of my iPhone and 2 Macs ever since the design was born. To be honest, I never truly appreciated the beauty of my iPhone’s Retina display until I was viewing this poster with it.

A high resolution Kris Allen on my iPhone 4S = the best thing ever.

Kris Allen’s growing a mustache to support music education, here’s how we can help

Short version:
Kris is growing a mustache to support music education. We can support him by –

  1. Donating to Donorschoose.org, where our donations will be matched by Music Empowers (every dollar helps!);
  2. Stach’ing our Twitter and/or Facebook profile pictures by following these instructions (if you want to be featured on The Great Wall of Stache, just send a tweet to @KrisAllenHK);
  3. Raise awareness to this wonderful cause by telling everyone we know!

Long version:
Kris Allen and Music Empowers once again are teaming up in support of music education for kids. For their latest effort the duo are partnering to provide a major grant to Donorschoose.org, the national online charity that matches individual donors to project requests fro teachers in public schools. Funds provided by Music Empowers will be used to match contributions made by individual donors to eligible classroom music education projects. “Once individual donations total 50% of a music project’s cost, we will fund the other 50%,” explained Andy Davis, Founder of Music Empowers. Kris and Andy hope that their initiative will help to fund hundreds of projects and benefit over 10,000 kids. Here is the link to the press release.

This is what Kris has to say about his stache:

For the next four weeks, I will subject myself to public humiliation and private doubt by growing what will no-doubt be a ridiculous-looking Mustache. To justify this endeavor, I need your support. Please sponsor my ‘stache by choosing a classroom project below and making a donation of any amount. And wish me and my Mustache luck.

And check out Kris being all adorable in this PSA:

Kris Allen’s guitar got stolen, and it’s a good thing (sort of)

Updated August 11 2011: Kris tweeted about the fundraiser because he is awesome like that (see end of post for the two new tweets). Also, there is a Kris Allen DonorsChoose Guitar Drive Pay It Forward Raffle! \o/

Uh, no, not really? For someone who loves creating and playing music so much that he makes a living from it, I can’t even begin to imagine how pissed off and sad he must be. I suppose it’d be like someone stealing my computer – you know, the one with Photoshop and Illustrator installed where I do all my work.

However, because Kris has the best fans who are geniuses and overall kick-awesome, @bushy0tailed has turned this negative event into something positive by setting up a giving page at DonorsChoose.org, where fans can channel their anger and frustration love for Kris and his beloved guitar into donations to kids who could not otherwise afford the equipments they need for music education.

At the time of this post, US$1,338.00 has been raised but I believe we can do so much more. The campaign has only been promoted on Twitter so far and we need the help of Kris’ fans all over the world to spread the word on your journals, your blogs, your favorite forums – wherever you see fit. You can also send the information to journalists / web sites that cover music / entertainment / charity news (no spamming, please).

Feel free to grab the banners and use them wherever you want. If you need new sizes, leave a comment here or tweet @KrisAllenHK.
