Updated: Apr 10

Cindy Lavonne Morgan (born June 4, 1968) is an American contemporary Christian music singer, songwriter, producer and pianist. Morgan grew up in Harrigate, Tennessee, and worked in shows at the Dollywood Theme Park before catching her break in Christian music. As a session singer in Knoxville, TN, she also contributed vocals to projects by Steve Camp, Point of Grace, Michael Bolton and Carman among others. Then after signing with Word Records, Morgan released one of the most successful debut albums in the history of contemporary Christian music.

Morgan released her debut album Real Life in 1992. It produced three number one songs, mainly on the Christian CHR chart. In 1993, Morgan was named New Artist of the Year at the Dove Awards and then later released her second album A Reason to Live. That album produced three more number ones on the Christian CHR chart. The ballad "I Will Be Free" won Short Form Music Video of the Year at the 1995 Dove Awards and was named as one of the 100 Greatest Songs in Christian Music. Morgan released her third album Under the Waterfall in 1995, going towards a more adult contemporary sound. Listen was released a year later. It was a critically acclaimed album and CCM Magazine named it as one of the 100 Greatest Albums in Christian Music.

Morgan released her fifth album The Loving Kind in 1998. Released as a concept album, it chronicles the eight days surrounding the crucifixtion of Jesus Christ. The album earned her a Dove Award nomination for Songwriter of the Year. A "best of" album, The Best So Far, came out in 1999. Morgan's final Word album, Elementary, was released in 2001. Morgan continued to release albums throughout the 2000s and 2010s and is more involved behind the scenes as a songwriter and producer. Morgan is also one half of the duo St. Lola in the Fields with musician Jeremy Bose and released one album High Atop the Houses and the Towns in 2010.

Morgan is currently married to attorney Jonathan Richardson since 2022 and has two daughters from Morgan's first husband, Canadian author Sigmund Brouwer. Morgan alternates between residences in Nashville, TN and Raleigh, North Carolina.
