CRYSTAL POLOA/SINGER/RECORDING ARTIST
















Crystal is a big deal! She'd never say that...BUT I would, so anyway... CRYSTAL is a BIG DEAL!  Sila and I asked her to sing for us while we were shooting.  Her microphone was not plugged in, but I had to double check, because her voice was so incredible!  Man oh man, do I love a great voice.  Seriously, I think there was some glitch in the talent doling process.  I could swear I was MEANT to sing.  I feel it, and feel it, but it just doesn't come out the way I heard it in my head.  It's okay I only cry about it every once in awhile now-a-dayz. Crystal filled us in on this labor of love of hers, and we talked as much as we shot.  It's a wonder we got anything done!  

Crystal's sister came for moral support.  They have such a special relationship.  You know..the "sisters and best friends" thing.  We have our next shoot set up for the both of them in the NEARISH future.  RIGHT GIRLS?!  (wink, wink).  Thank you Crystal for inviting me to work with you.  I didn't mention it, but Crystal is also a photographer for Swenensen Photography, so it was a double compliment to me that she asked me to help her with her marketing package.  Keep a look out for this one everyone!  I will let you know when the album releases!   GOOD LUCK SIS!

I got goosebumps when she started to serenade us.

Oh, Crystal.... What a magnificent voice you have! Don't come over to my house or I'll make you sing for hours while I play the piano... No joke! Ask Jr Maile, he probably has nightmares about it! LOL. I still have that song stuck in my head. Love it though! Good luck on your future ventures!

Hello Crystal, this is DaveO, the guy who played bass for you and the group in Farmington, NM recently. I was very impressed with your voice, along with everyone performing too. It was a pleasure backing you up, and looking forward to working with you again. Blessings,
