About

The British actress known for her inspiring Tony-winning performance as Celie in the 2015 Broadway revival of The Color Purple showcases her powerhouse voice for two remarkable evenings.

Renée says, "I was so fortunate to see Cynthia E's blazing performance in The Color Purple on Broadway. My family and I were on our feet shouting when she blew out the sound system in the penultimate anthem! Washington, D.C. and television audiences will remember her for her spectacular rendition of "The Impossible Dream" in tribute to John F. Kennedy at the recent Kennedy Center Honors, and she was a high point of the Grammy Awards telecast singing "God Only Knows" with John Legend. Her gift for unsparing, emotional honesty paired with vocal fireworks makes her performances simply unforgettable."
