Saturday night, a year after finishing in second place on American Idol, Crystal Bowersox came home to northwest Ohio. This time, she was here to give back, performing two sold out shows at The Valentine Theatre in downtown Toledo in front of family, friends, and fans.
The shows served as benefit concerts to support Toledo School for the Arts, which Crystal attended in high school. Current students from the school (and Tatiana Owens, a 2010 graduate making a name for herself in NYC) were given the opportunity to be Crystal's opening acts.

Crystal clearly has a devoted following in the Toledo area, one that will support her as she continues sharing her craft. We can't wait until she comes back.
Check out all my photos here, and keep an eye out on my blog for a couple videos to be posted in the next few days ("Home is the Place" and partial "Speak Now").
