The show celebrates the release of his acclaimed and most recent full-length album Horizons.

Adelphi University’s Performing Arts Center (AUPAC) is pleased to announce that Kris Allen, winner of season eight of American Idol will kick-off the eighth season of performances at AUPAC on Friday, September 18, at 7:30 p.m. The show celebrates the release of his acclaimed and most recent full-length album Horizons, produced by Grammy-nominated Charlie Peacock. Allen will also perform previous hits like the platinum-selling “Live Like We’re Dying.”

After winning season eight of American Idol, singer/songwriter Kris Allen released his debut album which produced the hit songs “The Truth,” “Alright With Me,” and the platinum-selling single “Live Like We’re Dying.” He went on to have a total of five singles on the Billboard charts and took his “impressive talent” and “warm-hearted charm” on the road. On his third album Horizons, Allen sharpens his songcraft and brings a more boldly openhearted spirit to his soulful brand of pop-rock than ever before. According to a Chicago Tribune interview, the album was made after a tumultuous time in his life; in January 2013 he and his pregnant wife were in a serious car accident that broke his arm and left him unable to play guitar for months. He channeled the experiences to deliver this substantive and personal album.
