Crystal Waters is a dance music legend.  Named by Billboard Magazine as “one of the most successful Dance Music Artists in the history of the Billboard Dance Music Chart” there’s no surprise, after sustaining a 30-year career, Crystal continues to engage new fans with her work and please her enormous base.
Crystal is best known for her string of domestic and international number one dance hits in the 1990’s, including her signature smash, “Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless)”, and “100% Pure Love,” which became one of the longest charting songs, residing on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a whopping 48 weeks.  Crystal has begun touring once again with the success of her songs “House of Light,” released on her own IAH Records label and “Never Enough” a track she did with Richie Blacker out on Atlantic Records.
There’s more to this world-renowned artist than just releasing music. Since the start of her career, Crystal has been a staunch advocate for LGBTQ Rights and AIDS research.
We couldn’t be more pumped for Crystal’s headlining performance at this years BSE After-Party.  
Please note: After Party entry is included with the purchase of a dinner table or individual ticket. Separate After Party tickets are not available this year due to capacity.

Look back at BSE27

The 28th edition of BSE will highlight CANFAR's Bold Actions to end the HIV epidemic through implementation projects that make a critical impact in under-resourced communities disproportionately affected by HIV.

Proceeds from Bloor Street Entertains support CANFAR’s three priorities to end the HIV epidemic in Canada:

  1. Launching national awareness campaigns to reach underserved communities and connect them to testing, treatment, and care;

  2. Removing barriers to testing and care for underserved key populations and communities by investing in new testing approaches and more accessible places and spaces with culturally appropriate supports;

  3. Funding research by and for members of these key populations and communities that will directly address the communities’ needs
