  • Aiden

    Such an incredible song and music video, also a very relevant message today. I hope Kris Allen’s “Vision of Love” shoots up the charts, not just for the purpose of letting good music get recognition among not-so-great ones that are up there but for a meaningful message like this to reach people. Kudos to Kris.

  • MJking

    He’s too underrated.
    He’s so talented, most of the “artists” today doesn’t even 1/3 of Kris’ talent.

  • ?

    I’m kinda late and I know it might be a stupid question but who’s Camelia?

  • ash

    why did he change the release date??Is it because he knew Adam’s album come out on May too?
    you are so much worse than Adam Lambert,deal with it Kris.

  • ratna12

    I love Kris. TVOL is such a great song and Kris looks great on the video.
    I can’t wait to see Kris perform this on American Idol on April 19.

  • RealFacts


    They said from the beginging that Kris’ album will be released May 22. It has never been changed.
    They were going to release Adam’s album before May, but they set it back, so he changed the release date.

    So you’re just talking bullshit.
    And Adam is not better than Kris, you can’t compare them.
