Lynda is cast as Wonder Woman
Lynda's Hometown Arizona

I grew up in a house filled with music. My mother, who is of Mexican and Spanish descent, used to sing to my English-Irish father, and between the two of them I was introduced to a diverse array of music, ranging from country to blues to classical. I was encouraged to sing since I spoke my first word, and I’ve sung every day of my life since then.

And not just in the shower, either! Here is how I started, and all the fun I’ve had singing along the way.    

“Bet you didn’t

         know I could sing!”
