Debut Single: 'You Can Let Go'
[Buy it on iTunes]

Why We Love Her: Anyone who considers themselves a 'Daddy's Little Girl' will love Crystal's heartwarming debut single. 'You Can Let Go' chronicles a father-daughter relationship from the little girl's first bike ride to the father's death. It's the first song from this talented singer's upcoming CD, 'Dawn of a New Day' -- which is what Shawanda means in the Ojibwe language.
