Toby Knapp also has some details on the recent song leak, Stand For The Vision Of Love, for the Kris fans. Quoted from his article here:

“Kris’ new album is almost done & this is one of the songs that we’re super psyched about… and is in the running to be the first single. Because the original version of “The Vision Of Love” is uptempo Kris thought it would be cool to… on the down-low… experiment with some fresh, unexpected remixes… the producers we’ve approached have all been really into the song… and it seems like this trance remix team from Finland called Maison & Dragen just got a little over-excited with their version.”

Update on Kris Allen’s mustache campaign to raise awareness for music education for kids

A while back I posted about Kris Allen’s mustache campaign to raise awareness for music education for kids. Kris has since posted two #krisstache updates (see photos embedded below), and as of the time of this post the campaign page on DonorsChoose has registered US$ 6,545 of donations, helping 11,674 kids in the process. At the end of the campaign, the donation will be matched by Music Empowers Foundation, doubling the amount of money raised and the number of children reached.

Here’s Kris looking hilarious in his #krisstache updates…

Not for the faint of heart, I know. Kris is enduring enormous ~pain and public humiliation all in the name of charity; will you help him bring music education to kids in need?

The fundraiser was announced on November 14, 2011, so only two weeks left now… it won’t be long till pretty!Kris is back again… in the meantime, here is something pretty for your eyes :)
