Chrystal Bowersox Live at the Madison Theatre -Rockville, NY


… who the heck is Crystal Bowersox? If I could exaggerate – I would. I learned a lot about her last night at Molloy College’s Madison Theatre. First off I did not know she was an American Idol superstar back in 2010. After the concert we went to the tapes, and yes … even Simon raved about her. .

A musically talented guitarist with a voice from the heavens, she is a gifted performer for sure. But what brought it all home for me, was her spirt of hope and gratitude in her songs. She seems to find optimism in just about everything, be it about her mom, her son, love lost, love won, the bigger political picture or the simple smile on her dogs face … it all made me grin. After the standing ovation, I left the concert a whole lot happier than when I walked in … it felt good to tap my foot, put a smile on my face. I was happy to give a buck to one of the many charities she supports – and as she suggested, give a hug to a new friend I met last night!

She and her talented co-performers Kevin So and Sam VanFossen will be at the The Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, Old Saybrook, Connecticut tonight, definitely a show worth seeing 🙂
