*CrindelStar is an inspirational story based on a young girl, Maria, who faces peer pressure from her classmates to abandon believing in her precious unicorns. We learn through Maria’s encounter with a mystical creature, CrindelStar, that what she believes of herself creates the foundation of what she might ultimately contribute to the world through her life’s purpose and gift. CrindelStar arrives to rescue Maria from her despair, but it is through Maria’s compassion, honesty, and personal courage that CrindelStar is saved as well !

From a tiny island to around the world. The original “CrindelStar ~ Where The Universe Dreams”, story was written while Gigi was living in the U.S. Virgin Islands, in 1985. The CrindelStar theme song was later **written and recorded, along with the story’s audio narration, in Nashville, TN by 2004. The first recipients of the audio album (2004) were children in South Africa suffering from AIDS. Copies of the narrated story & song album were delivered to the South African children by way of a Vanderbilt University Professor who had been introduced to the CrindelStar project in Nashville. A true “labor of love” defined everyone’s efforts to deliver those first handmade copies of CrindelStar, made possible by the Professor’s Nashville-based church mission group that supports AIDS Clinics in South Africa.
CrindelStar’s mission has always been to reach children of all Nations, delivering her inspirational message of Peace & Love. Over the years CrindelStar’s theme song has played on terrestrial radio station as well as internet radio, ultimately achieving a grassroots global reach in 2013 with Planet CrindelStar’s third album, “Voices United 4 Peace” featuring a compilation of Peace songs & messages by International Artists & was broadcast globally via the University of the Virgin Islands radio station, the United Nations Radio, and more.
