CRYSTAL WATERS by: MICHAEL BEAS
Raver Mag: Your 1991 American pop radio hit “Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless),” took the world by storm and it set the pace for a career of historic proportions. Why do you feel this song, more so than the rest, hit home so deeply with America and the world? Crystal Waters: First of all, thank you. That’s very sweet of you to say! I think it’s a couple of reasons. In the 90’s, there was big economic recession happening and there was a massive homeless problem. AIDS was just starting to hit the gay community and no one understood what was going on. I remember stories of ambulances not picking up patients if they knew they were gay. There was a lot of displacement going on and not much understanding. I think when “Gypsy Woman” came out, it made people think. It kind of put a face to what was happening at the time. It was also a fresh and new sound at the time. Even though the lyrics were a bit dark, the music was uplifting and people needed that at the time.
