More and more on the internets, I am finding that Crystal already has several original songs written by none other than herself. It would be nice if these songs were already for sale, or an album to be had! Alas, they are not yet available, but hopefully, in the near future, they will be.
This Yakster (and many others in the forum) are big fans of hers. She is a “modern” throwback if you will, with the soul to sing songs from the likes of Janis Joplin to Melissa Etheridge, Bonnie Raitt to Alanis Morrisette. I wouldn’t mind hearing her belt out a meaningful Pink ballad as well. She is current, and quite frankly, too good for the AI amateur stage. Don’t get me wrong, I am so glad she found her way there, and I really hope she can use this experience and platform to push her up to the stardom she so rightly deserves. I am truly jealous of those who had the honor of hearing her play on the street. She fills the gap for the young acoustic hippie that this tree hugger was definitely missing. She is looking to have her guitar signed by powerful women, and I’m most confident that she should be signing it herself as well.
This coming week, Adam Lambert is the mentor on the show. Now I know, there are MANY Lambert fans out there, (of which I am not one…sorry) but I gotta say, huh? How is he even remotely qualified to be a mentor? He has not even been off the show a full year, isn’t that widely successful (yet) and didn’t even win… So I really don’t get it. This should be interesting, especially for an artist like Crystal. What advice could he possibly have for her? I guess we will see?? Just weird. I will say I am very happy that Crystal continues to do her own thing. She already knows who she is, the artist she is, and needs to change nothing. Kara has from the start given her the wrong advice. Hopefully she continues to listen to herself, and even Simon Cowell has agreed.
Here is another treat, an original by Crystal called “Mama” – A big thanks to the Crystal Bowersox Blog who posts all these gems from her. Would love to know if we will ever be able to get our hands on these songs. I would really like to put them on my ipod to take with me on my drives and chill time! Give it a listen, then come join us in the forum to let us know what you think!
Oh and… let’s throw some votes over to Big Mike this week as well peeps! This wonderful positive soul should NOT be leaving this show this early!Details
