Kris Allen, signed a deal with 19 Entertainment and Jive Records
Kris Allen, American Idol Season 8 winner already has a deal with 19 Entertainment and will also release a debut album through Jive Records this fall. Allen will join other AI stars like Jordin Sparks and David Archuleta under Jive Records.
“As exciting as the last few months have been, I’m really looking forward to what is next,” Allen said. “Everyone’s been asking me what it’s going to sound like. It will be very similar to what you heard from me on the show – definitely in the pop/rock genre. I can’t wait to get started!” he added.
But before his much awaited album he will hit the road first together with the rest of American finalists for a tour starting July 5th in Portland, Oregon. His song “No Boundaries” is currently number 23 on the Hot 100 Singles Chart.
“Kris won the hearts of millions of Americans with his soulful voice, good looks and gracious demeanor,” AI creator Simon Fuller said. “However it is his passion for music and love of performing that will make sure Kris stands the test of time and makes American Idol proud.”
