SO LET YOUR VOICES BE HEARD THROUGHOUT THE LAND
WITH HOPE FOR PEACE CAN  WE ALL HOLD HANDS
BECAUSE WE’RE A RAINBOW OF COLORS, SHAPES AND CREEDS
AND FOR THOSE WHO KNOCK US DOWN,
SO THEY CAN STAY UP
ONLY PROVE THAT THEY ARE WEAK
OH YEA YEA YEA YEA

THERE IS A NEW DAY DAWNING
THE TIME IS NOW
AND THE WORLD IS READY FOR A CHANGE
CAN’T YOU FEEL IT IN YOUR HEART
DON’T YOU FEEL IT IN YOUR SOUL
THAT THE TIME IS NOW

Dream For One Bright World

Great music, great sound, a wonderful CD!  Cynthia swings, sings and soars in this new much anticipated release...don't sleep on this one!

A breath of fresh air... A Jazz vocalist with some soul.

- Jon Norton, WGLT Radio

In these days of so many green and just plain “not ready” singers being afforded recording opportunities, its great to hear someone with true vocal skills who brings some real life experience to the table… loves found, loves lost, life lived and just plain life-informed pathos to invest in a lyric… and really mean it!  Cynthia Scott definitely brings it on this new release and certainly the ancestor Ray Charles would deeply approve!

 - Willard Jenkins

Cynthia Scott is a songstress who can deliver her craft with a warm but powerful message.  She is soulful and sensuous, with a lot of class and sophistication.  With her new CD and original compositions, she delivers to the listeners a phenomenal sound.

You are never to old to set another goal or dream new dreams

A mesmerizing vocalist

You really cover a lot of ground, from inside the heart to global hope and brotherhood. Your writing has real depth and new feeling I haven't heard before, harmonic richness and soulfulness, but it's so rooted at the same time. Genius...and diversity too!

- Jon Burr  Bassist

A dreamer must have a tenacious commitment to his dream.

Never lose sight of your dreams:

"Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning."                            Gloria Steinem

Take a listen... feel the dream and help turn it into a reality.

A dream you dream alone is only a dream

A dream you dream together is reality

If we can dream it, we can do it

Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

It’s the possibility of having a dream come true, that makes life interesting.

Dream On...Then Wake Up and Do Your THANG

Dreams are not for sale

“Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.” – Gloria Steinem
