Hello, my name is Crystal Rose and I'm a singer songwriter from Kansas City, Mo. I have moved around a lot but have quickly come to call KC, home.
In May of 2016, I released my single, Come Alive which you can listen to HERE, on iTunes, Spotify, and other major streaming platforms.
I truly got my start last fall and since then, I haven't wasted any time claiming a spot as a rising voice. This year I've graced some of KC's most popular stages and festivals and I'm excited for even bigger opportunities here and away from home.
Thank you so for visiting my campaign, Ankò: Dream Again. Ankò exists to raise funds to record and release the new EP that I'm so excited to share with you! And this is a special project because I have the opportunity to partner with Community LINC, a non profit in KC, that is helping end homelessness. I've decided give a percentage of all funds raised to Community LINC as they continue the fight against homelessness.
You've probably wondered what Ankò means or if you even pronounced it correctly.
Ankò is Haitian Creole for the word "Again"
I decided to use Ankò because I wanted to incorporate my family's Haitian decent.
It's pronounced - encore
I'm raising $9,000 to record and release a Full EP of 5 songs.
This includes funding for the recording, mixing, mastering, hired musicians, marketing.

Why I chose Community LINC.
As a kid I grew up in poverty stricken and abusive home.
My dreams were small, If you would even call them dreams at all. I dreamed about what and If I was going to eat that day or if I would be able to sleep without a predator interrupting.
It took me over 20 years to start dreaming big because I lacked the basic necessities every child should have. I don’t want to see other kids waiting that long to dream BIG because of circumstances they absolutely no control over.

Let's just be real, there is always risks involved in pursuit of your dreams.
There's the vulnerability part in just going after them and then there's asking someone else to bet on you as well.
And then there's always the possibility of not meeting the goal. And if that becomes the case then we wont be able to see the full vision come to life. It will have to be modified.
The chance of not reaching the goal has never stopped us! I 100% believe that we will meet this goal and that we'll raise the funds to make this come to life but I would so much rather do it alongside all of you.
no money to give, no worries.
We appreciate support of all kinds.
