"The Voice Of The Community"
Cynthia Jones is one of the most intriguing women in the gospel music industry today. She is a rarity and the soulful bold refreshment that's needed to fill an obvious void in the gospel music world where the effort to disguise or leave out the name of Jesus Christ is prevalent.
The Raleigh, NC native is the daughter of a minister, she comes from a family that is musically inclined and she is an active member of the Upper Room Church of God in Christ, under the leadership of Dr. Patrick L Wooden Sr. She also serves on the Board of Directors of "Passage Home" which is an organization that provides housing for families taking immediate steps in the transition between homelessness or incarceration to self-sufficiency.
Cynthia has been writing and singing various styles of gospel music for many years, from traditional, contemporary to jazz. She wrote her first song when she was in the eighth grade, and in 2005 she decided to go back to the music that was in her heart and soul and released her third current project "Soulology".
Word about Cynthia Jones, the neo soul gospel singer began circulating throughout the media and top magazines such as Gospel Today, Gospel Truth, TCP Magazine, Gospel USA and a myriad of others, describing her as a masterful performer with a powerful unfiltered message that was touching hearts and reaching souls from all walks of life, and the comments from the Christian community were those from Christian neo soul music lovers that were grateful to finally have a genre of gospel music that they love and wanted to hear without having to compromise lyrically, because many of them thought they had to give up that style of music after accepting Christ, but through Cynthia's message in the music, it was evident that was not the case, she meant Kingdom business.
