Cynthia Ross Project
Cynthia Ross knew at an early age that she was born to sing. Born and raised in St. Louis Missouri, Ross started singing at the age of 3, when she received a piano for Christmas. At the age of 5, she began singing in her church with her grandmother who played the piano.
Cynthia’s love of music was evident as a young child. During middle school, she was selected to participate in the state choir, and at the age of 15, she performed in her first professional performance as part of a jazz band.
When I was young, my grandfather used to tell me that I sounded like Mahalia Jackson and that one day I would be just like her”.
Singing is a primary focus of Ross’ life and she has concentrated all of her efforts into perfecting her art and craft. According to Ms. Ross “I sing gospel music because I’m giving honor to God with the gift that He has given me. Singing Gospel quiets my spirit and inspires me to dream and have hope in God’s word.
When I sing to others, they are allowed to go with me to that special place in the spirit where healing and deliverance takes place; a place where you can feel the presence of God. Singing Gospel music for me is a privilege and I thank God daily for it because he chose to use me to represent him.”
