Chris is a brilliant singer and a very nice guy. It is too bad he married into such a gold digging manipulative family. His own family and friends not to mention his daughter want nothing to do with them.

This is a really old profile pic of Chris, he has his hair long now. Why all these nasty comments about his wife? Jealous I guess? I had a meet and greet with Chris a few years ago and she was there and was really lovely!

I can not believe such a handsom man would chose to be with Vicky Karayiannis. She is a hag!
