Early 90s pop star Crystal Waters will be joining fellow Gypsy Woman Council member Letitia James to keep a Fort Greene homeless shelter open on Saturday (Tiffany wasn't available). She will be performing her hit She's Homeless at 2 PM on Saturday at Freddy's Bar, 485 Dean Street in Prospect Heights, Corner of 6th Avenue, (718) 622-7035. The details:
Crystal Waters, whose 1990s hit song “Gypsy Woman” is about a homeless woman that sings for her supper (“la da dee laa da da”), is coming to the Barclays Center/Atlantic Yards project site this Saturday to help homeless families in Brooklyn by fighting to keep a crucial family-shelter open, which is located in the footprint of the proposed Barclays Center/Atlantic Yards project.
“I don't know which is colder, Brooklyn in January through March, or what the Barclays Center/Atlantic Yards project and the City and State of New York are doing to the homeless families on January 15. Keep this shelter open till it's warm out,” said Council Member James.
Updated: Tish will be joining Crystal for a duet of Gypsy Woman (Homeless Woman). Also, reporter Steve Witt will NOT be bringing his guitar to this event for an impromptu sing-a-long.
