Despite her new residence in the Bay Area, singer/songwriter Crystal Monee Hall is proud to be a southern woman. A daughter of Richmond, VA and a self-proclaimed “church girl,” she grew up singing with her mother in church every Sunday. As her remarkable talent continued to blossom she became involved in music in school. She went from starring in musical theatre in high school to directing the gospel choir at her alma mater, the University of Virginia. After earning a master’s degree in English, she went on to perform with Disney Entertainment and with the nationally touring and Broadway productions of the Tony Award winning musical RENT.”
Her work has been presented at Rivers of Honey, The Laurie Beechman Theatre’s “After Party,” The Triad Theatre’s “Just a Piano” series hosted by Lee Summers, The LGBT Community Center’s Poets and Playwrights Series, and many other top venues including the Levitt Pavilion in Pasadena, Yoshi’s in San Francisco, Joe’s Pub in NYC, and the Napa Valley Opera House. In Spring 09, NYC choreographer Camille A. Brown & Dancers debuted a new piece set to Ms. Hall’s original music at The Joyce SoHo, entitled “One Second Past the Future.”’ Ms. Hall was also a featured vocalist in Ahrens and Flaherty’s score for the Hurricane Katrina documentary, “After the Storm” and in Michael McElroy’s Broadway Inspirational Voices choir. Other major artists she has worked with include Jason Mraz and Sir Elton John.
