About the Author & Composer
Cynthia Jordan began her career in music as a songwriter when in 1983, her song, Jose Cuervo, became Billboard Magazine’s number one country song of the year. For 12 years, Cynthia studied classical piano with concert pianist Doctor Nino Albanese. In 1984, after her success with Jose Cuervo, Cynthia moved to East Texas where she founded Kids for Kids, a Christian music ministry for children. In 1997 she moved to Nashville where she signed a record contract to compose and produce 11 CDs of ambient piano music for Page Music. By 2000, Cynthia had over 5 million downloads of her music.
After receiving numerous letters telling her how her music was helping people, Cynthia began researching studies on the effectiveness of using music as a catalyst to accelerate healing. She began working with Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, and developed a program that is used for Continuing Education Credits for nursing programs, geriatrics, hospice, pediatrics, drug and alcohol rehab and special needs children. Music a Powerful Soul-ution is the name of her keynote speech and workshops. In 2005 Cynthia moved to San Angelo, Texas, and created a radio program she calls Ahh Radio. Every evening from 9 to midnight, 97.1 FM plays her programmed music to help people relax, students study and to calm children before bedtime.
Cynthia was first published when her story Tita was included in Chicken Soup for the Latino Soul. Since then has written 6 books. Butterfly Moments and If This Was Heaven… are both non-fiction. The Lady in Blue, the story of a nun who lived in the 17th century, has been translated into 3 languages. Just recently, she has completed the third book of her Gem Series which are historical fictions full of fascinating history and address women’s challenges from 1860 to 1929. Her novels, Pearl, Diamond, and Ruby have created new speaking topics for women. These stories have evolved into her newest keynote she calls, The New Woman.
Cynthia is an entertainer at heart and guarantees her audiences will never be bored! Her 2 musicals, Miss Pearl’s Parlor and Lady of Agreda, are both scheduled to hit the stage soon. If you happen to hear her speak or read one of her books, make sure you have a box of Kleenex nearby and prepare to laugh out loud.
