Biography

Crystal Goh is a singer-songwriter and arranger based in Singapore. From 2010 to 2011, she performed live acoustic sets at OverTime @ Holland Village, wedding gigs and at various World Vision Singapore events, including the organisation’s most major campaign, the 30-Hour Famine. In 2013, under a collaboration with World Vision, she did a local tour with the Mongolian Kids Choir, performing a self-penned song with the children in several venues across Singapore. Crystal also sang in numerous events and wedding gigs in the past five years.

In 2011, Crystal was diagnosed with spasmodic dysphonia. This caused distress to her vocal chords, and she struggled to sing. During this time, Crystal chose to focus on songwriting and arranging instead. In 2013, she collaborated with two vulnerable communities — at-risk youth and children of incarcerated parents — to write, record and perform four original songs. The project, known as Diamonds on the Street gave Crystal the opportunity to bring friendship and hope to the communities through music. Diamonds on the Street culminated in two live performances and a five-track album.

Crystal plays the guitar and ukelele, and is well-versed in music production software. Her vocals have since improved, and she is currently exploring ways to tap into the “new” voice that had risen from her condition.

Wrote and arranged the song S-M-I-L-E for China artiste Liu Meilin (刘美麟).
