CAMERON PARK — When she was just a child, singer-songwriter Cynthia Renee learned she had a passion for performing when she began singing for the congregation of a small church nestled in the foothills of El Dorado County. She also sang at local area retirement communities.

With the holidays happening, Renee has returned to El Dorado County to share her passion of music on Saturday, Dec. 22 at the Ponté Palmero Retirement Village, 3081 Ponté Morino Drive in Cameron Park Drive.

Renee will be presenting her vocal talents at a pre-holiday dinner in the resident clubhouse.

The independent artist is currently producing her first solo album that features her recently released original song “Where Are You Now,” as well as a number of inspirational songs which she will share with the audience along with a select mix of holiday music.

Although her college education and professional career steered her in a different direction early in life, Renee has little doubt within her own heart that her true calling has always been singing and songwriting. Many of her peers agree that Renee was born with a special ability to write and sing music.

“My parents tell me when I was really little I used to sing the jingles from the different television and radio commercials word for word. I don’t remember that but I know when I first realized I had a gift with my voice was back in the sixth grade,” said Renee. “In a sixth grade talent show, I performed the well-known Journey song ‘Open Arms’ and received a standing ovation. It was at that moment I realized I had a gift that I could share with others.”

For Renee, it wasn’t long after standing on that grammar school stage that she began performing as a child in area retirement communities, convalescent homes and most notably, a small country church in Grizzly Flat that was built and pastored by her Grandfather.

After the talent show I had visited my great-grandmother in a convalescent home and I sang for her. I noticed how much she and the others enjoyed my songs,” said Renee. “So I expressed to my parents my interest in singing at other hospitals in the area and they gave me their full support and helped arrange other engagements for me.”

For Renee, performing isn’t about walking out on a strobe-lit stage with smoke and effects in front of thousands of screaming fans. While that type of following is something every performer at one time or another has dreamed of, for Renee developing a song from start to finish and then being able to share that song with others and bring them to a highly emotional state is where she finds true satisfaction.

Renee has performed with several bands over the past few years and at a number of different venues.

Recently she has performed solo including a performance of the National Anthem on the nationally televised Gold Cup Race of Champions in Chico in addition to performing the Anthem for the residents of El Dorado County at the Placerville Speedway last summer. It was at that same local venue that Renee first performed the song before the public some 20 years ago when she was involved with the local community theater.

Renee recently auditioned for NBC’s “The Voice” as well where she competed against thousands of other talented artists from across the country.

“My heart has always gone out to those who are lonely. Especially people who spend their days and nights in convalescent hospitals with hardly any visitors,” said Renee.

She also feels strongly about the sacrifice of our veterans. She contributes a portion of the proceeds from her music to the Wounded Warriors Project as a tribute to her father and other veterans. Renee’s father wasn’t injured in the line of duty but had many comrades who were. Her father’s best friend died in his arms in the Vietnam War.

Renee is looking forward to performing at Ponté Palmero three days before Christmas at its elegant clubhouse.

“I am hoping to perform at several area organizations this holiday season,” said Renee, who draws a lot of her inspiration to move forward as an independent artist from the success of other indie country stars such as Taylor Swift and Jason Aldean, both of whom perform songs based on real life situations.

“When you have a passion like this and dream to follow it there is plenty of hard work involved, but it’s always a pleasure to share it with others. I’m looking forward to this special night at Ponté Palmero,” Renee said.

The performance is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. Admission is free.

To learn more about Renee visit her Website at cynsinger.com. Her music can be located on iTunes, Amazon and on the internet Radio Airplay. Additionally, her song “Where Are You Now?” has been submitted for future play on local radio as well as stations on the East Coast.
