“American Idol” Kris Allen will have family on his mind

HollywoodNews.com: “American Idol” Kris Allen will have family on his mind today (5/29) when he performs at this year’s “National Memorial Day Concert” in Washington, D.C.. “Both my granddads were in the military,” says the 25-year-old singer from Conway, Arkansas.

“And actually my wife’s family is a military family. Her dad is retired from the Air Force” — in addition to her brother, who is just back from Iraq. Allen also says he’s been looking forward to meeting fellow luminaries on this year’s lineup. The show, being aired on PBS (check your local listings) has Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna as cohosts, with an appearance by General Colin Powell and performances by “American Idol’” contestant Pia Toscano, Forest Whitaker, Dianne Wiest, B.B. King, Jason Ritter, Hayley Westenra, Daniel Rodriguez, Yolanda Adams, A.J. Cook and the National Symphony Orchestra.

    The videos of Kris singing “God Bless the USA'” during dress rehearsal are awesome. He brings his usual class and grace to the performance. Love this guy!
