Cynthia Arnellan Edwards is a native of Buffalo, New York. In 1973, She attended Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia. While in college, she met a group of young people who were on fire for God. After witnessing and prophesying about her life, she was convinced to surrender to the Holy Spirit. Now forty six years later, better known as Sister Edwards, she has proven that her life is completely transformed. She was married to Elder Henry Edwards for 23 years till present. Edwards joined the church and began to work out her soul salvation by singing, teaching hymns to the children’s choir, playing the organ for the weekly services for 45 years, and traveling all over the country with the choir. Her pastor, Bishop Samuel L Green, guided her on her journey. He taught Cynthia about holiness and how to live a saved life.
Years later, Cynthia had the opportunity to be one of the soloists in Faith For Living Richer Life Ministries, (a ministry that her pastor preached with every week). In 1996, Edwards received her license from the Church of God in Christ as Evangelist-Missionary. She met her beloved husband, in 1997, who helped her with her singing career and crafting her desire to be a recording artist. God willing, Cynthia was able to create two albums; “Don’t Give Up” in 2007 and “It’s Time” in 2018. She traveled with Bishop T.D. Jakes to Johannesburg South Africa to Mega fest, where her music was played throughout Nelson Mandela Square.
In 2016, she sang with the C.H. Mason International Choir of the Church of God in Christ to Jerusalem. Edwards was one of the featured soloists for the Faith for Living Television broadcast with Bishop Samuel L. Green, who was the first African American to own a religious television station WJCB TV 49.
Cynthia has two children, Melodie Rose and Rebecca Michelle, and also one grandson named Paris. Cynthia Edwards remembers her pastor telling her that “you won’t outlive what God has in store for you when you work for Him and don’t run away.” That bit of knowledge inspired Cynthia. Her goal is to do whatever she can to win souls for Jesus Christ, not only in singing, but ministering with her husband to people of all walks of life. Cynthia says, “I just want to help somebody so they don’t have to go through what I went through, and that is the education of hard knocks.”
