Lynda Carter
Best known for winning our hearts as 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 famous popular singers including Ray Charles, Tom Jones, Kenny Rogers, George Benson and Ben Vereen.  Lynda made her professional debut at age 14 in Tempe, Arizona. 

In 1973 she won the Miss World-USA title and shortly thereafter outdistanced hundreds of other actresses for the part of iconic “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 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 in 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 audience on a journey where her life and story and her music intertwine. 

Though Lynda continued to act in films and television, when she had children she left the road to raise a young family. She returned to live performing in 2006, appearing on the London stage with an acclaimed star turn in Chicago.

In 2007 Lynda started touring again in venues across the country with her band of Nashville all stars. Lynda has brought her concerts to major venues across the country including the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. Her first CD, “At Last” was released in 2010 and dropped at No. 6 on the Billboard charts. Her second CD, “Crazy Little Things” was released in 2011. Lynda released her most recent album, “Red, Rock N’ Blues” in 2018. Her music is available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.  

Lynda appeared in the CW hit series Supergirl as the President of the United States and also made guest appearances on “Two and a Half Men” and “Law & Order SVU”.  She reprised her original role in the film Super Troopers 2 and recently filmed an independent film Heirlooms with Shelley Long.   For her incredible career, Lynda was presented with her ‘Star’ on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2018. 

Lynda and her husband, Robert Altman reside in Washington, D.C. and have two children, James Altman, an attorney and Jessica Carter Altman, also an attorney but now concentrating on her own singing career, making guest appearances with her mother along with just releasing her solo debut EP, “No Rules.”
