A New Jersey vocalist who majored in computer science at Howard, Crystal Waters had one of 1991’s surprise left-field hits with Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless). The song had both a potent message and wonderful vocal that smartly mixed anger, irony, and humour. None of Waters’ other songs were quite that inspired, but her debut LP, Surprise, got her in the hunt. Storyteller followed in 1994, and in 1997 Waters returned with a self-titled effort.
Other succesfull singles are:
- Gypsy Woman
- Makin’ Happy
- 100% Pure Love
- My Time
- Destination Calabria (Alex Gaudino Featuring Crystal Waters)
Eventhough she only had a couple top 40 hits, she scored one clubhit after another.
