Season 4 The Voice contestant Kris Thomas first captured attention with his exceptional audition of Whitney Houston’s “Saving All My Love For You.” Covering songs ranging from Miguel’s “Adorn,” Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man” and The Jackson Fives’ “I’ll Be There,” Thomas’ vocal talent proved to be uniquely special as he sang each song with an authentic pureness. Now, this former Team Shakira finalist, has seamlessly transported himself into musical stardom with his newly released Self-Titled EP. The soulful pop EP beautifully showcases Thomas’ silky smooth, yet powerfully charming vocals as he sings about love and relationships.
