Crystal Reid is a wife to one, a mother of two, a sister and a friend. She is also a singer, performer, songwriter and most importantly, a lover of God. Born on the beautiful island of Jamaica, Crystal grew up in St. Catherine but moved to Kingston at age 17. She has been singing since the age of two and did her first real performance at the tender age of twelve, while at her grade six graduation at the White Marl Primary and Junior High School.
She considers herself a product of purpose, greatness and love, because she has passed through so many ABC’s (Abused, Belittlement and chastisement) in life, that the only reason she is still standing is because of God’s grace. Music plays a key role in Crystal‘s life as it helps her to release stress, remain calm through any situation and draws her closer to God. Most of her music is a testament of what God has brought her through and what He is currently doing in her life.
Her discography includes: “Thank you Lord” and “Jesus lover of my soul,”recorded in October, 2015, with production credits for both songs going to Cameron Browne; “Thou Art Holy,” which was released earlier this year (produced by Emmanuel Mike) and “I’m not giving up,” a record done in collaboration with gospel recording artist Keesa Peart, which is all about abuse and disappointments she suffered as a youth growing up in Jamaica. Crystal is currently in the process of producing her first debut album which is entitled “Thank you Lord.”
This is what Crystal Reid has to say about her career as a recording artist to date: ”I started recording for my own benefit and gratification, however the Lord told me this is not the case and that this will be used to glorify HIM alone. I am an oracle for Jesus Christ and will continue to lift up the blood-stained banner as I spread the good news.”
