Kris Allen displayed his musical talent on AI and finally, won the title. In a show where it given the impression that Adam Lambert and Danny Gokey would be competing against each another, Allen's out of character, terrific spin on "Heartless" placed him in the finals. Even more astonishing, he defeated the highly talented Lambert, a steady front runner before the top thirteen. From the AI, we find out that he has an ear for music and is brilliant at arranging songs, and is a very talented songwriter as well. His flair for strong melodies shined through on singles he co-wrote, of which there were several cuts on his last self titled debut album. It was very heavily built on guitar and piano, and his simple and untouched vocals only harmonized that sound.
After three years since his debut album, Kris Allen is back with his sophomore effort "Thank You Camellia" (TYC), set for release on May 22, 2012. The Vision of Love will serve as the lead single off of their new album. The standard edition of the album contains eleven tracks while the Deluxe Edition will have fourteen songs and the Fan Version will include nineteen tracks comprising the standard edition plus three bonus songs and five acoustic singles.
