Kristal Smith, one of the members of Kelly Rowland’s girl group June’s Diary, is crying out for help after losing her home in a tragic fire incident on Sunday.


Kristal took to Instagram with videos of the burning house and the rubble that remained after the inferno.


“Thank you God, for sparing me and my family’s life,” the singer began in an emotional caption. “Last night I lost everything that I’ve worked my entire life for...my entire home, and everything in it is gone.”

“I know that God has a plan and never puts more on us than we can bare (sic), but this has been the biggest blow I’ve ever had to take. All of my possessions, memories, and things of great sentimental value is gone...just like that.”


Kristal then went on to ask for prayers and donations for her and her husband, singer/songwriter Dwayne “Dee Roze” Spikes.

Still To Come: "Kelly [Rowland] was trying to put out music prior and I think ‘Chasing Destiny’ really gave her the confidence"

“I need your prayers please for peace and understanding,” she wrote, expressing gratitude that only material possessions were destroyed in the raging fire.


“If you would like to make a monetary donation I’ll be posting my PayPal and cash app,” she pleaded, adding:

“And to anyone in the area who would like to physically donate, please inbox me. Any and everything is appreciated. I love you guys and I thank you in advance for your prayers and kind words.”


Kristal also created a GoFundMe campaign that has raised over $2000 of its $20,000 goal. “I’m so overwhelmed thank you all for your loving words and support,” Kristal wrote on Insta stories one day after her post, per MadameNoire.


Kristal is one of five African American female singers brought together by former Destiny’s Child member Rowland in 2016. The process of creating June’s Diary was documented on the BET original series “Chasing Destiny.”

Earlier this year, Kristal and her bandmates – Ashly Williams, Brienna DeVlugt, Shyann Roberts and Gabrielle Carreiro – revealed that they’d expected Rowland to be more involved in their career outside the show.


According to MadameNoire, the ladies acknowledged Rowland’s platform nonetheless as the big push for their careers.

“Kelly [Rowland] was trying to put out music prior and I think ‘Chasing Destiny’ really gave her the confidence to just go out there and do it again, work on an album and work on her project. But, you know, it gave us wings, and we were like, ‘alright, Kelly’s not here, so we gotta figure this out.’”

“It’s literally like college,” Kristal added on behalf of the group. “You send your kids off to college; you got to let them grow up and do their own thing. And we appreciate her.”
