Kris Allens' Story

Kris was born June, 21 in Jacksonville,Arkansas. In elementary school he learned to play viola, & started teaching himself  how to play guitar at age 13 and he has since learned the piano. Faith plays a large part in Allen's life, and led the aspiring musician to become a worship leader for New Life Church in Arkansas at both the Conway and Greater Little Rock campuses, and on campus at University of Central Arkansas with Chi Alpha Campus Ministries. He has also completed missionary work in Morocco, Spain, Mozambique, South Africa, Thailand, and Burma. Music also remained an important part in his life, and in 2007 he produced his own album entitled Brand New Shoes.

The next year, on September 26, 2008, he married his high school sweetheart, Katy O'Connell, who was also a former homecoming queen at the University of Arkansas.
