In December of 2011, the idea of a Christmas concert was born. It would be a show solely for and to the benefit of the children that Crystal and Kem worked so closely with.
What started without a venue, lineup, or budget transformed into a full-fledged production in a matter of weeks, thanks to generous donations and sponsorships from Crystal and Kem’s professional network. Within days there was a 17-piece orchestra, two choirs, prominent musicians and singers, alongside a drumline, sponsored ice cream, gifts, and a Santa Claus impersonator.
On December 22nd, 2011, the officially named “Crystal Starr Christmas” took place at Barnsdall Theater in Hollywood, California, and benefitted the children in foster care of the Los Angeles area. 300 children in the foster system were served that evening, and each child was given a gift at the end, with the help of several donors.
The greatest gift of the production was the later adoption of two young girls who were in attendance that night.
