If Cindy Chang looks familiar to you, it may be because you may have seen her on America's Got Talent Season 6 where she sang in front of the largest audience ever in her life, became an internet sensation, and dubbed the American Susan Boyle.
Cindy Chang, born in Seoul, Korea and raised to obey her parents’ wishes graduated with a B.A. in Speech Communications, Pre-law from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, but after attending a PhD prep program and finally coming to terms with the fact that she could no longer continue working so hard for something for which she had no passion, she is now pursuing her dream to perform! Cindy started her dream to perform by saving some money to start taking some lessons, did some voice recitals, started in community theatre, went through the school of hard knocks, pounded the pavement off and on over the years when her "normal" job in the corporate world at the time allowed, and eventually booked roles in theatre (Ravinia Festival, Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire, Light Opera Works, Pamiro Opera, Cain Park), industrials, commercials, and films (Baby on Board with Heather Graham, Jerry O’Connell and John Corbett; and Family Weekend with Kristin Chenoweth, Matthew Modine and Shirley Jones) showing some stepping stones of what can result from hard work and perseverance. Now Cindy is grateful to be able to devote her time to pursuing her dreams!
Besides her dream to perform, Cindy’s husband and dogs are her world and loves of her life! “Being the best wife I can be is the most important role to me, as well as, being a good daughter to my parents and taking care of them,…WHILE still STAYING TRUE to ME and who God created me to be.”
