Kris Allen Celebrates 25th Birthday

Kris Allen has had quite a memorable 25th birthday on Monday. First, his fans collected donations of over $25,000 to Heifer International to buy 50 cows in his honor (the initial goal was $500 and 1 cow and it snowballed in a hurry!). Then he performed in a private lunchtime show for 100.3 the Peak listeners and even got a cake from the radio station. Finally, that evening, in the middle of his concert at the Sunshine Theatre, the audience, his band and Green River Ordinance, serenaded him with Happy Birthday and presented him with more cake onstage. Horns, elephant hats and decorations were passed around, thanks to the planning of some industrious Kris fans.

Here's video of the birthday shenanigans, which includes a sweet shoutout from Kris to the Alright With Moo participants:

And another in HD, from AINow:

Kris's setlist was: Can't Stay Away, Heartless/Gangsta's Paradise, Written All Over My Face, Red Guitar, The Truth, Alright With Me, Bring It Back, Maybe, Before We Come Undone, Man In The Mirror, Is It Over, Live Like We're Dying, Falling Slowly/With Or Without You, Come Together.
