ABOUT LYNDA CARTER
Best known for winning our hearts as TV’s Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter is an accomplished singer who has performed to rave reviews before sell-out crowds around the world. In addition to her long acting career, Lynda has the distinction of producing and starring in five highly rated network television specials for CBS, several of which were Emmy Award nominated. She has appeared onstage with many of the world’s most popular performers including Tom Jones, Ray Charles, Kenny Rogers, George Benson and Ben Vereen.
Lynda made her professional singing debut at age 14 in Scottsdale, Arizona and after a short stint travelling on the road with bands, found herself in Hollywood and outdistanced hundreds of other actresses for the part of Wonder Woman, a character she infused with such depth and humor that it has become one of the most indelible characters in television history. Her fame led her to becoming ‘the face’ of Maybelline Cosmetics, and she remained Maybelline’s top model for over a decade.
But her roots remained with her music. “Singing is my soul” says Lynda. “I was on the road performing in my teens and traveled from the Catskills to Las Vegas and from San Francisco to the saloons in Texas.” An engaging storyteller, she takes her audiences now on a journey where her life and story intertwine.
Though Lynda continued to act in films and television, when she had her children she left the road to raise her family. She returned to live performing in 2006 appearing on the London stage with an acclaimed star turn as Matron Mama Morton in Chicago. In 2007 Lynda began touring again in venues across the country with her band of Nashville All-Stars. Lynda has brought her concert to major theaters across the country including The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC and Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. Although she released an album Portraits in the ‘70s, she once again started recording and released her first new CD At Last in 2010 which dropped at No. 6 on the Billboard charts. This was followed by Crazy Little Things in 2011 and Red, Rock n’ Blues in 2018. In recent years she has starred as the character Magnolia in the Fallout 4 video game series, writing and performing original songs that were nominated for NAVGTR awards. All of her music is available digitally wherever music is streamed and sold.
Lynda was seen in the CW hit series Supergirl as the President of the United States and reprised her original role in the film Super Troopers 2. She also narrated the three-part series Epic Warrior Women for The Smithsonian Channel. In 2016 she was presented with a star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars and in 2018 was honored with her “Star” on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
2020 saw her special appearance in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman ‘84.
Lynda is an avid supporter of many nonprofit organizations and causes that have touched her heart over the years such as The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation, The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement, The Coelho Center for Disability Law, Policy and Innovation, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, God’s Love We Deliver, Glaad, The Harry Potter Alliance and Freedom For All Americans.
