Growing up listening to Michael Jackson, Kriss developed a talent for both singing and dancing. During his high school freshman year, the young artist began building his performance reputation, and came to be known as “Little Michael Jackson”.
Kriss aspired to take his music career to the next level and began performing, whenever he got the opportunity, as a solo artist at small shows to build recognition for himself. In 2010 he was approached by a former teacher to perform at the birthday celebration of a female student. Kriss provided the vocals and was joined by Dale Ellis on the guitar. They serenaded the birthday girl and the audience went wild. The performance was successful and enjoyed tremendously by all attending. After that performance Kriss and Dale joined forces and performed together on multiple shows. That same year Kriss decided, while relaxing, singing and putting harmonies together with a bunch of schoolmates after a performance at Green Pond High School coral service, that it was time to form a group.
The journey began in the year 2010, at Green Pond High School where Christopher (Kriss), who aspired to become a solo artist, was attending a concert with friends. There they combined their vocal talents and began singing together. Kriss liked the sound and blends of harmonies and formed the group called ‘Insanity’. They began performing at various school concerts and functions. Although undergoing several transitions in members the group continued performing while attending high school until 2012. It was now time for graduation from high school but definitely not from this wonderful sound they had developed. They decided to continue performing together after graduation, and the group was renamed “4EFEK”.
