Kristofer Lawrence Cadevida (born September 1, 1982), better known as simply Kris Lawrence, is a Filipino singer of dual American and Filipino citizenship.[1]

Early life[edit]

Lawrence was born in Los Angeles, California. His father is Loreto Cadevida and his mom is Justina Protacio. His younger sister, Laurie Cadevida, is currently with the North American Tour of Miss Saigon playing as Kim, a Vietnamese woman. Before he won Search for the Star in a Million, he was with Jay-R in the group First Impression from mid-1998 to early 2000.

In 2010, he signed an exclusive contract with GMA Network and appeared on the variety show Party Pilipinas. On March 12, 2012, Lawrence signed to GMA Records along with three other artists. Having already made GMA (the Kapuso Network) his home network since early 2010, and now officially joining their roster in music, Lawrence has hinted at his wish for his songs to be used in different shows on GMA.

Lawrence's self-titled debut album was released in 2006, followed by Moments of Love in 2009 which mainly included covers of songs such as George Michael's "Careless Whisper", Richard Marx's "Right Here Waiting" and Christopher Cross' "I Will Take You Forever". His third album, Spread the Love, was released in 2013.
