Cynda began a professional life of acting and singing after relocating to New York from her native Chicago. Her debut film MO' BETTER BLUES directed by Spike Lee, was a critical and commercial success. Blessed with a role that also required singing, her song HARLEM BLUES went #1 on the R&B charts. That film opened the door to her next performance in Carl Franklin's ONE FALSE MOVE - the true icebreaker for Cynda's career. This break out independent film appeared on many Best Film lists and Cynda was nominated for the coveted Spirit Award.
Cynda has since appeared in numerous films including: Christopher Nolen II’s 72 HOURS, Stewart Wade’s TRU LOVED, John Nolte’s BEAUTIFUL LOSER, and others. Cynd's television roles include: BET's HIDDEN BLESSINGS, LIFETIME'S THE COURAGE TO LOVE, HBO's DOROTHY DANDRIDGE, Oprah Winfrey's ABC miniseries, THE WEDDING and PBS' TALES OF THE CITY.
Cynda also sings and acts on stage. She most recently appeared in THE TALENTED TENTH, LANGSTON IS MY MAN, HOPE RUNS ETERNAL, TWILIGHT IN LOS ANGELES, 1992, MAKE EM’ LAUGH, MAKE EM’ LAUGH A CHRISTMAS CABARET, IMMEDIATE FAMILY, DREAM GIRLS and Mother 4,5 &7.
Cynda sings professionally for film and on the stage. She sings Jazz, Americana and R&B with The WES Group, Micheal Martin Band and The C & Ronnie G’s Band.
Cynda’s career also has taken a turn to creating content - writing screenplays, musicals, and books. She looks forward to bringing her creations to life with the commercial production of these works. Her current project is Pink Pantie Confessions, book, web series, and blog. The book was recently released where all books are sold. Cynda continues to sing, and accept quality roles in film, television and theatre.
