Crystal Stark


When powerhouse vocalist Crystal Stark performs, she doesn’t just take the stage – she owns it.

The international performer and American Idol semi-finalist got her start singing in her home town of Tucson, Arizona. Her early teachers included famed soprano Faye Robinson and jazz legend Jeff Haskell. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Arizona with a degree in Music Education, she auditioned for Season 5 of the cultural phenomenon American Idol – along with 100,000 other contestants. Crystal made the top 44 and, although her Idol journey stopped there, she forged a close friendship with season runner-up Katharine McPhee and joined Katharine’s national tour as a back-up singer.

Crystal quickly rebounded from Idol by entering and winning Adult Contemporary Vocalist and Best of Show at Gospel Music Association’s Music in the Rockies competition. Following that victory, she was asked to perform at Disney World’s Night of Joy, a Christian-themed music celebration.

Her subsequent travels have taken her to venues throughout in the United States and abroad, and she has shared the stage with such talents as trumpeter Rick Braun, guitarist Matt Marshak. and beloved comedian Bob Newhart. While touring with Katharine McPhee, Crystal appeared on The Tonight Show, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Regis & Kelly, The Today Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live, among others. Internationally, she has traveled to Mexico with the U of A’s Studio Vocal Jazz Ensemble and did a month-long tour of China with the university’s Studio Jazz Big Band.

Today, Crystal enjoys a full performance calendar that reflects the diversity of her wide-ranging talents. In addition to fronting the Crystal Stark Band which plays at venues around Arizona and for corporate functions, she sings with 80s cover band 80s and Gentlemen, vocal trio Triple Threat, the Tucson Pops Orchestra, and Big Band Express, among others. Crystal performs regularly with concert production company Lonely Street Productions, with whom she also traveled to New Orleans for a performance of “Celebrating Elvis” at the famed Mahalia Jackson Theatre. Her newest show, “To Ella with Love” – produced with Khris Dodge Entertainment, is a one-woman tribute to the legendary Ella Fitzgerald in which Crystal scats, sings, and shows off her instrumental chops.
