Krystle has been singing since she was a little girl. “My dad says since I was about two I used to ask for a microphone every year for Christmas and before I had the microphone I used to sing with anything that looked like one!” From that point on, Krystle knew that she wanted to have a life full of singing and performing.

Krystle really enjoys being a karaoke DJ because it gives her a chance to sing and interact with the audience. “My favorite part of being a karaoke DJ is the joy and fun I bring into someone’s life,” Krystle says. “I am very persuasive and usually get people who don’t normally sing anywhere but the shower to sing at my shows.” Krystle definitely takes the opportunity during the shows to get up there and practice her own singing. “Those are the easiest places to perform,” says Krystle of karaoke bars. “When you perform at karaoke shows it usually gives you a sense of what songs people like to listen to.” Krystle’s ultimate goal is to be a recording artist in the music industry. She admires so many musicians, but if she had to choose only one to collaborate with, it would be Whitney Houston, who has been her role model since she was three years old.
