She has written, produced and secured mainstream talent for two films: Groupies and The Kudzu Christmas. Groupies is a cult classic with first time appearances by rap artists Ludicris and Lil’ John. Kudzu was the first movie to be shown on the successful television station TV One!

She is an advocate for the better treatment of our elderly and through a self-funded and organized annual event “Injured Angel Mixer”; Chrystale encourages her friends to donate products, which she personally distributes to inner city nursing homes. She also displays her love for animals as a volunteer at local “no kill” animal shelters. She lends her gift of speaking to high schools and colleges addressing the important of acceptance and tolerance among people from different cultural backgrounds.

And just when you thought this young lady had done it all, Chrystale will be making her debut back into our living room in Ex-“R&B Diva’ Nicci Gilbert’s New Docu-Series, ‘From the Bottom Up’. The show is backed by non-other than Queen Latifah, it seems like everything she touches these days turns to gold and this show will prove to be no exception. Now, who said content was a thing of the past? ‘From the Bottom Up’ is a docu-series guaranteed to provide the viewing audience with something more than a cat fight or predictable twist. ‘From the Bottom Up’ takes its viewers into the lives of successful women who have somehow or another lost everything they had worked for, but the show doesn’t stop there. These strong women refused to accept defeat and will do what it takes to get back on top. Watch this unique team of women go against the odds and triumph over adversity when it seemed as if there was no hope in sight. Chrystale shares the stage with the likes of Sarah Strokes, Christine Beatty, Stacii Jae Johnson and Kim Smedley in what is anticipated to be, one of the best shows on television this year.
