Submitted. On June 28 from 6PM to 8PM, the Envision Financial Concert in the Park Series is proud to present country-pop singer Kristal Barrett at the Kariton Art Gallery stage in Mill Lake Park (2387 Ware Street) in Abbotsford. This concert kicks off the Envision Financial Concert in the Park Series that will take place each Saturday evening until September 13.
Kristal Barrett released her debut album “High on Life” in 2007, and has since won Media Idol for BC, been nominated for numerous BC Country Music Awards (Horizon Award, Humanitarian of the Year) and has had radio airplay across Canada. In 2011, she released three new songs including her smash hit “Girl in A Car,” which was accompanied by her first music video. In 2013, Kristal won an Abbotsford Arty Award for Outstanding Artist in the Performing Arts – Music category. Kristal took a short break from the music industry to focus on motherhood but is now writing some new songs and has begun to perform again in the community.
