Crystal Starr had a promotional UK appearance on Wednesday, 30th October 2019 at Arboretum Private Members Club in London’s Leicester Square UK.
Her latest single release ‘Get Loose With It’ which we covered here… Click Link serves as the lead single from her second album ‘SHE’ which has further cemented her solo career leading to support slots for Lady Gaga, Drake, Tito Jackson and J Lo since its release last year.
A major act in the making, the two time Hollywood Music Awards winner has an impressive resume, having performed regularly to crowds of over 80,000 people as official support act for artists such as Paul Stanley (Kiss), Ariana Grande, Kanye West, John Legend and Stevie Wonder over the past ten years.
Dubbed as the Latina Amy Winehouse, Crystal Starr is flying the flag for female activism. Lead single ‘Get Loose With It’ aims to encourage women in the dating game to free themselves from the shackles of societal pressures and to be themselves. The soaring track with its big band vibe cements Crystal Starr as an integral beacon in the ever-growing movement towards female equality and empowerment.
Produced by John Mitchel (Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston), Crystal was inspired to create ‘SHE’ based on personal accounts (including those of her loved ones), of heartbreak, abuse and the struggles women are unfortunately forced to endure too often. Crystal Starr’s music exists to uplift and encourage women to be a community who support one another.
Crystal Starr is a regular face on American TV shows, featuring on Ellen, Tonight with Jimmy Fallon and NBC’s ‘The Winner Is’. A personal highlight of her career was being selected to perform on Broadway as a lead role in Warner Brothers hit musical ‘Baby It’s You’, the story of The Shirelles.
As the founder of non-profit organisation ‘Little Voices’, Crystal Starr produces Grammy scale concerts for children in foster care to enjoy for free, so that they can have the opportunity to be inspired by art and music to overcome respective challenges, experience joy and cultivate self-esteem.
Crystal has just appeared to 100,000 people at Fuji Rock Festival, opening for The Cure and has just been to the UK for a promotional tour of ‘SHE’ , performing at Arboretum Private Members Club in London on Wednesday, 30th October.
‘Oh SHE…can be anything that She wants to be. She’s alive!’
Erupts the chorus of Crystal Starr’s anthemic ballad of female empowerment, ‘She’. Drawing inspiration from the strong women in her own life, as well as all women around the world and throughout time, Starr takes us on a journey through her story, rather than history.
Women around the world continue to face gender prejudice and discrimination on a daily basis, but it has not stopped us from making extraordinary strides in a historically short amount of time. In 2016 and for the first time ever, a woman has run for the highest office in the land in the United State of America, and the playing field has been altered once again. After pushing us to shrug off the doubters and the naysayers, Starr encourages us all to stand strong in the face of adversity. Together, we can overcome!
‘Oh SHE…She is powerful. Inspirational. Giver of Life!’
Oh yeah…and then there’s that whole thing about mankind ceasing to exist without us.
We are SHE.
“For your past, for your future, for others….STAND.” – Crystal Starr
