Lynda Carter, best known for winning our hearts as Wonder Woman, 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, many of which were Emmy nominated. She has appeared onstage with many of the world’s most popular singers, including Ray Charles, Tom Jones, Kenny Rogers, Bob Hope, George Benson, and Ben Vereen.
Lynda made her professional singing debut at age 14 in Tempe, Arizona. In 1972 she won the Miss World-U.S.A. title and shortly thereafter 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 to 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 story and her music intertwine. Though Lynda continued to act in films and television, when she had children she left the road to raise her 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 concert to major venues across the country, including the Kennedy Center and Jazz at Lincoln Center. Her first CD, At Last, was released in 2010 and her second, Crazy Little Things, came out in 2011.
Last year she appeared as a special guest star on the hit TV series “Two and a Half Men”. Lynda resides in Potomac, Maryland, with her husband Robert A. Altman, and is a staunch and outspoken supporter of many charities, including Father Martin’s Ashley Treatment Center and God’s Love We Deliver, along with numerous human rights and equality organizations.
