A native of Los Angeles, actress/singer/songwriter Caitlin Crosby started writing songs with Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and signed to his label under Arista Records at the age of 17. Caitlin has also appeared in film and recurred in dozens of TV shows and commercials.
Growing up in and around the entertainment industry gave Caitlin insight into what really went on behind the scenes of the media, and she started speaking at junior highs, high schools and colleges about body image, peer pressure, and bullying. She created www.LoveYourFlawz.com to aid in those issues. Caitlin was chosen as a spokesperson for Oprah’s top 10 favorite charities for O Magazine’s 10-year anniversary and Oprah’s Live Your Best Life events.
Additionally, Caitlin started a ‘Pay It Forward’ jewelry business called “The Giving Keys.” They engrave inspiring words on used keys. Once someone wears it, they must give it away at some point to a person they think needs the message on the key and then go to the website www.thegivingkeys.com to blog the story about why they gave it away. The Giving Keys has now employed ten people who were trying to transition out of homelessness and five of them have now moved into apartments from this movement. The Giving Keys have now been featured on The Today Show, The Huffington Post, Teen Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, and more.
