Kris Allen, our new American Idol has been on a whirlwind experience leading up to the finale. Months ago while he was still a newlywed, Kris decided to try out for the Idol competition. This audition led him in front of the judges to hear the words you can only dream of hearing, "You're going to Hollywood!"
From Hollywood week all the way to the top 13, most people never anticipated that Kris "the dark horse" Allen would ultimately win in the end. We heard a great variety of songs from Allen ranging from "Ain't no sunshine", "She works hard for the money", "Heartless", to my personal favorite, "Falling slowly."
Week after week, we've seen Kris compete for the sought after title that he finally claimed this week. But what we haven't had the opportunity to see from Allen is him in his personal element, singing not for fans nor for a competition, but for God. Allen was a worship leader at New life church in Maumelle, Arkansas and this video shows him leading his congregation into a spirit of praise.
I hope this video takes you into a heart of worship like it did for me. There's truly no one like our God and it's amazing to think that the creator of the world is also the God of this city!
Thanks for the inspiration Kris!
