ROOTS welcomes its newest voice mentor, Crystal Kade.
Crystal Kade (voice) was born and raised in California. She grew up competing in dance where she discovered her love for music and performing at an early age. She has a passion for the arts and sharing her gift through her choreography, songwriting, and teaching. She is an alumni of Santa Clarita School of Performing Arts and lived in Sydney, Australia for three and a half years prior to moving to Nashville, where she studied and interned at Hillsong International Leadership college as a vocal major. It was during this time that she really found her voice and passion for helping others to do the same.

Q&A with Crystal
What’s your favorite day of the week and why?
Any day I can sleep a bit and spend time with friends and family.
Coconut Road frozen yogurt from Publix, quite specific as ice cream is my weakness, and this is my new found favourite!
Place you spend most of your time:
I’d say it’s pretty evenly divided between my house, my car, and the lake. 🙂
Place you wish you spent most of your time:
Traveling adventures, exploring new places and trying new things. I wanna see the world!
A quote good enough to be Instagrammed:
Always find a reason to laugh. It may not add years to your life but will surely add life to your years. 🙂
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to continue singing, songwriting and teaching and then of course someday I want to be a mom.
Last thing that made you laugh out loud:
I don’t recall exactly as I’m always laughing about something. 🙂
Your coffee order:
At Starbucks I either get a double tall breve latte 1 pump white mocha or a blonde roast black…anywhere else I’d generally get flat white or cappuccino with two raw sugars. I love coffee. <3
