Syndee Winters made her Broadway debut as future-queen Nala in Disney’s The Lion King, a role she reprised in 2019 when she had the honorable opportunity to meet Sister Nala, Beyoncé, in preparation for The Lion King live-action film. Her other Broadway credits include Motown the Musical, Pippin, and “working it” as all three Schuyler sisters in the smash hit Hamilton. On television, she’s been featured on NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert with EGOT recipient John Legend, and as Ms. Smiley on Law & Order: SVU, where she interrogated Lt. Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) on her parenting methods! Inspired by the art of storytelling, Syndee’s latest project, the R&B duo Butterfly Black with Grammy-winning bassist Ben Williams, has everyone falling in love with their self-love anthem, “Lifetime,” available on iTunes, Spotify, and all digital platforms. You can also hear her voice on tracks by artists such as Snoop Dogg, Big Daddy Kane, and Grandmaster Flash. Offstage, Syndee founded ROAR School, a performance development workshop that equips artists to be Resourceful, Optimistic, Authentic, and Reliant. Through her instruction, young artists learn to adapt to any environment throughout their performing journey; combining creativity, discipline, and mindfulness, ROAR School has transformed the skills of students all over the world!
