Lynette has been blessed with many opportunities -- some she has chosen to take advantage
of, and others she passed by, desiring a different direction for her life and her music, and more time with her family,
church and community. Through it all, she continues to sing -- one of her greatest joys. Her husband and family have
always been her biggest support and inspiration as she performs and entertains audiences of all sizes with her trademark
warmth and "silky" smoothness that fans have come to know and love.
