Click Here to Donate to The "You Should Have Won" Give Back Fund
Crystal's time as a homeless street performer in Chicago is what inspired her to start collecting donations at her live shows for her aptly named, "You Should Have Won" fund. As someone who once relied solely upon the generosity of strangers, dollar by dollar, simply to get by - she now collects "tips" from fans who wish to tell her "You Should have won American Idol!" at her live performances. However; these "tips" are gratefully not for her anymore. Once the collection reaches $1,000.00USD. the money goes on to help others in need.
