Kris Allen – Away in a Manger – (VIDEO)

Kris Allen sings “Away in A Manger” with some children on his recent trip to Africa with World Vision USA. The performance remained flaw-free, until Kris encountered some wildlife. Ha.

    He’s such an angel and this was beautiful. It wouldn’t be Kris without something cute/funny happening. ‘There was a fly on my nose.’ lol

    I love this guy.

  • BigNLiddle

    so pretty

  • standtotheright

    Good videographer, fly and all. This was very pretty.

  • Triskel4

    LOL.  Kris has some interesting wildlife encounters.  Also, the little boy with his head resting on Kris is adorable.

  • rayni

    Beautiful! Love anything he sings and love that personality!

  • linsmile

    Aww, yes, the child sitting next to Kris, resting on Kris is so adorable.  Last week during the livestream from Africa Kris said he didn’t see stringed instruments there and the kids were very intrigued by his guitar.  I look at the face of the child next to him and wonder what thoughts and feelings the music/song/Kris is inspiring.

    That was adorable!

  • Montavilla

    That was simply adorable. Kris is going to make a great dad someday.  (If, you know, that’s something he and his wife decide to do.  No pressure.)

    This video captures everything I love about Kris – his voice & musical sensitivity; his love of others that shines through and his sense of humor.  It basically sums up everything you need to know about Kris in one video.

    And I agree that it would be something related to Kris without something funny  happening.

    Random question relating to Kris, I noticed that “My T Mouse” was the copyright on the Christmas EP. Is that the name of his self-release label?

  • Miz

    I’m pretty sure that is Sylvia’s little girl, Jane, resting her head on Kris. He was quite taken by her.

    Kris mention King5 news Seattle about his relationship with World Vision.

    Gorgeous video and so cute at the end w/ the fly

  • marmom07

    That was wonderful.  Love Kris’ voice and his sense of humor. He is just so chill. What an amazing human. Adam and Kris remain my favorites as both humans and musicians. I just can’t even imagine what it must have been like with that much amazingness sharing a room in the idol mansion or being on idol the year they were both on.

    I just don’t do organized religion any more but I really enjoyed Kris’ interpretation of that song. 

  • MissMyEm

    I know I’ve said this many times, but when I see things like this video, not only does my heart swell with admiration for Kris, but I am so proud to be a fan.   Not only was this song sung very prettily, but the little girl resting on his arm was adorable.   And of course the fly on his nose was typical.   So Kris.   

  • Ratna12

    Love his laugh, so adorable and love Kris.

  • mzhallcat

    The voice, the child, the laugh, that darn fly–this video is all kinds of adorable.

  • Jonins

    I wonder what My T Mouse means. And why name his corporation that way? Very intriguing.

  • suenigma

  • blackberryharvest

    Yes, I would like to know the reasoning too!

  • Incipit

    suenigma posted the WIKI entry for Mighty Mouse – or My T Mouse – As far as the literal meaning goes – a pocket sized Cartoon Superhero.

    Figuratively, a small entity can still do big things to be a success, and to help people.

    IMO. Of Course.

  • Linda Parish

    What an awesome trip for Kris to be the host for WorldVision in Kenya. I love this song and look at the sparkle in the kids’ eyes! The first time thru I didn’t notice the fly on Kris’ nose until he said why he was? laughing at the end of the video

  • nyc57
