Time – the continuum of experience in which events pass from the past through the present to the future. In one respect, time does not seem to define the career of critically acclaimed singer/songwriter, multi-Dove Award winner, and Grammy nominee Crystal Lewis. In a day and age where so many artists come and go, Crystal’s voice has withstood the test of time.
Over the course of nearly 3 decades, Crystal has released more than 20 English albums (including two live albums, two Christmas albums and a children's album) as well as 7 albums in Spanish…and at 45 years of age, does not show any signs of slowing down. Having recently released a 2-disc compilation entitled '25', spanning her first 25 years in music, including 2 brand new remixes of the hit songs People Get Ready and Beauty for Ashes, and following up with a kickstarter-funded album of all new songs set to release mid-2015, she seems ready to charge into this next chapter with gusto… and grace.
Having performed in front of millions world-wide, and having worked with, and sung alongside, some of her musical heroes (including Bono, Mary J. Blige, Yolanda Adams, CeCe Winans, Andrae Crouch, David Foster, Michael W. Smith, Donna Summer, Steven Curtis Chapman, Michael and Stormie Omartian and Kirk Franklin) there’s not much left for her to prove.
Not that Lewis has ever been out to prove anything, she’s always been more about expressing the joy of life in Christ through song than building a life in the limelight. The fact remains, however, that her life has been lived in said limelight… where she lets her light shine bright.
