“but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint,” Isaiah 40:31

Alumni Virtual Choir

"Forever" by Kari Jobe
Featuring Christopher Kale Jones '96

Guest Artist: Christopher Kale Jones '96

Christopher Kale Jones '96 is a professional actor and singer. He is most known for his role as Frankie Valli in the first national tour of the Broadway hit "Jersey Boys." He has also made appearances on the Tonight Show, Access Hollywood/Extra and has been in numerous theatrical productions.

“The mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical health have suffered for many during this unprecedented time, but God is still in control. I am excited to be a part of something that can bring more hope to hurting people. It is my hope that each and every person who watches this song will be uplifted and filled with hope. Our school, our city, our state, our country, and indeed our entire world is ripe for rebirth, and what better way to epitomize that than with the story of Jesus at Easter,” said Jones.

Jones attended HBA beginning in ninth grade. He was a member of the Soldiers of Light select choir, and performed in many of the school plays. He served as student council vice president, was a member of the National Honor Society and was elected Mr. HBA. 

Jones has spent the bulk of his career in New York and Los Angeles, but is now based out of Chicago where he lives with his wife Jenna, daughter Presley and dogs, Rocket and Nacho. Jones, who still calls Hawaii home, returns occasionally to visit with family and friends.
