Singer With A Message
I was born in Miami and raised in both the Miami and Coral Springs area. I've been singing ever since I can remember, but it became a professional pursuit when I was ironically discovered by a teacher in 2nd grade who recommended me for dance program at a South Miami magnet school. I ended up not getting into the dance program, but I was accepted into the music program instead; I was 9 years old at the time. There was were I learned how to use my voice, how to project, make a musical sound. I played the violin, viola, cello, steel drums. You name it, I've played it. I was so intrigued by all the different musical sounds these instruments could make.
Many have asked me who I take after vocally in my family. But I really have no idea where I got my voice because no one in my family sings; although they are musical people. I had a lot of bad first time performances at church, and school, and needless to say my stage presence was a fearful one. But I got over it slowly and was able to sing in front of audiences in Carnegie Hall, Disney and I was even able to tour Austria with the Miami Choral Society, of which I was a part.
I sing all types of music although my first vocal training was in classical/operatic style. But I grew into all sorts of styles including barbershop, jazz, pop and just about anything I can get my voice on. I really get inspired by techno/dance/trance music. It's like it touches my soul on another level; I'd like to think it's my gateway with God. There are certain sounds and chords in the music that tickle your ear in a certain way to create that high level euphoria.
Just like everyone else, even entertainers must be concerned with fashion. It's what everyone's always talking about, and God forbid you're caught dead in a dreadful wardrobe malfunction! And I really do admire Jennifer Lopez's style. The woman definitely has got the money to master it. And like her, I try to separate the regular, laid back Krystal fashion with the superstar-esque, up on stage performer, Krystal. On a regular day, my style is preppy, very chic, with a cutesy/classy/sexy look and easy on the make up. I'm a jeans girl, though dresses have recently caught my eye. While I'm performing, I like to step it up a bit. I LOOOVE COSTUMES and dressing up. Jewels! Insane over the top hair with things I wouldn't normally walk out of the house wearing, on a regular day. I definitely get heavy on the make up on stage, especially the eyes. All the glitz and glamour comes into play when I'm performing and I can pretend to be that Primadonna diva that every little girl dreams of!
