Crystal’s emotive folk-rock-country style has been catapulted from the cramped coffeehouses and cavernous subway tunnels of Chicago to millions of homes across America when she placed second Season 9 of American Idol. Along with her old soul of a voice, her care-free style and “don’t mess with me” attitude set her apart from the other contestants and eventually landed the self-taught songstress performances with the like of the legendary Joe Cocker, Harry Connick, Jr., and Alanis Morrissette.

    I would like very much to attend with my daughter because we watched Crystal with so much love and admiration, since American Idol. Hearing her perform makes us feel inspired and hopeful again! Please give us the opportunity to feel that way again. Thank you.

    I have been waiting for her to come to Portland. I’ve been trying to scrap up the extra cash so the wife and I could go but “free tickets” would be so much better!!

    The best memories of American Idol, for me, are singers like Crystal. Artists I would’ve never had the chance to be exposed to otherwise, performing from the heart, motivating my family and I to experience new songs and enjoy classics from a different perspective. Crystal’s authentic, original take on songs was refreshing and beautiful. She had my support then and hopefully you can help me support her again now. I appreciate you holding the giveaway!

    Crystal was a breath of fresh air on Idol – an original singer, not a formulaic “song stylist.” I would love to see her do a live show.

    Would absolutely love tinkers to this.

    Crystal sounds like a reincarnation of Janis Joplin (hopefully without all the self-destructiveness). I’ve heard she does a great show and would love to see for myself.

    Wanted her to win American Idol! Love to see her live!

    Crystal Bowersox was my pick from the first time she sang! I was very sad she didn’t win, but would be thrilled to see her sing. I love her style and attitude and can’t can’t wait to see her at the Aladdin Theatre!

    We saw her once and really enjoyed her music but we also enjoyed the interaction with the audience. She told some pretty funny stories and took a selfie, with the audience in
    the background, which she then posted to her facebook page. Nice!
