Crystal Waters is an American house and dance music singer and songwriter, best known for her 1990s dance hits "Gypsy Woman", "100% Pure Love" and 2007's "Destination Calabria" with Alex Gaudino. All three of her studio albums produced a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. In December 2016, Billboard magazine ranked her as one of the most successful dance artists of all-time.

Storyteller" and "Daddy Do" aren't frilly numbers; the former describes a relationship gone sour in literate, emotionally compelling terms, while the latter is a hard-hitting attack on wife abuse. Waters scores lots of points through delivery and inflection, and her CD is much more than a dance/disco diva's outpourings.

The title track to Crystal Waters' second studio album, ‘Storyteller’. This song is about Crystal’s relationship with a guy who she’s had to go through a lot for. This isn’t a happy storybook ending, however, Crystal wants to find a way to make the relationship work. The song was written and produced by Crystal Waters, Neal Conway & Sean Spencer. Storyteller" Track Info. Written By Crystal Waters. Recorded At Basement Boys Studios. Release Date May 17, 1994. Storyteller Crystal Waters.

Storyteller - Waters, Crystal (CD 1994). You know that skit from Saturday Night Live, the one where the two guys stand around a nightclub bobbing their heads and trying in vain to pick up women? Right, well this is the perfect disc for their head-bobbing. A slick dance-popper in the same vein as, say, Culture Beat or Haddaway, Crystal Waters kicks off Storyteller with her dancefloor trump-card: "100% Pure Love," as sure a club hit as was released in 1994
