Singing for audiences and congregations,
large and small, since the tender age of 5, Singer, Songwriter, and Producer, Cynthia L. Thomas has been blessed with the
gift of music that stirs and inspires the hearts of mankind.
After relocating from her birthplace Bloomington, Illinois to New Orleans
with her family, "making up" songs at the piano and singing them for her church congregation became the norm at
an early age. Consequently, Cynthia embarked on a path that led her to earn a Certificate of Music from the New Orleans
Center for Creative Arts and complete her studies in Vocal Performance (Bachelor of Music) from Loyola University
of New Orleans.
Realizing the purpose of her musical gifts, after college she founded LuvMo Music; literally "Love More,"
with the heart and intention of sharing "God's Love” through the music. Through Luvmo,
she instructed private voice lessons, did her very first solo recording; performed and recorded background vocals for many
artists, as well as demonstrative vocals for musicals and shows. She’s also recorded jingles for radio and television
and has ministered and performed with a number of choirs and chorales, including the Moses Hogan Chorale. In addition
to a significant number of other notable music performances, she performed Mozart’s Duet Sull' aria, or
"To Romeo" from The Marriage of Figaro with the New Orleans Symphony Orchestra, and has also been a guest
vocalist in a Gospel Brunch episode of the Emeril Live Show. (The Food

Cynthia has worked and appeared with a vast
number of distinguished musicians and singers. In 2002 she was invited to be a guest artist on the Ellis Marsalis Jazz
at Christmas in New Orleans project and in 2003, she recorded her first National/International solo album, All

video aired on Black Entertainment Television's "Lift Every
Voice," and “Video Gospel;” UPN's "Gospel TV," a host of other video shows throughout
the country; and can still be seen on “The Word Network.” Reaching the hearts of millions,
she was also a guest on LeSea Broadcasting’s “The Harvest Show.” Featured
on this release is her eminent song, "Your Mercy," which, along with several other tracks from
her All About Love album, is still greatly blessing others through Commercial Gospel radio, Inspirational radio;
Airline, Internet, and Digital Radio throughout the world.
Referred to by many as an anointed, extremely versatile, “skilled” vocalist,
and an exceptional songwriter/composer, Cynthia has conducted a number of choral workshops and instructed songwriting classes;
served as Choral Director and Minister of Music in the New Orleans, Dallas, TX, and Atlanta GA areas; as well as ministered
at Women’s Conferences, General Conferences, Concerts, and Music Festivals in various parts of the USA, Canada, and
Europe. She is thankful for the privilege of her musical and teaching gifts but she is also very grateful for her
family. She has been blessed with a wonderful supporting husband, three beautiful children, and their sweet little ten
year old Shih Tzu, Nyla.
