It was recently announced that the “First Lady of Sax,” Corinthia Cromwell, has been inducted as one of the newest members of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.
Cromwell is voting member of The Recording Academy and a protégé of Grammy Award Winner Wynton Marsalis.
“It is such an honor to induct Corinthia into our sorority. She is an amazing talent with deep seeded roots in gospel and jazz. We appreciate all of the work that she does with the next generation of musicians,” said Deborah Catchings-Smith, Sigma Gamma Rho’s International President.
“I am honored and humbled by being accepted into a sisterhood that promotes service and leadership as well as inspires women to fulfill their purpose and bond together as sisters. I prayed that the Lord would send me people and friends who exemplify the virtue of honesty and integrity. I am glad to now have all of this in my Sigma Gamma Rho sisters,” said Cromwell.
Cromwell uses her music as therapy for children and seniors. She will soon release two new CDs, “Straight Roots” and “Because of the Blood.” Fans and jazz greats describe her stirring performances as “breathtaking” and “inspiring.” Cromwell, a saxophonist, vocalist, songwriter, composer, bandleader, and producer, has been on stage with Grammy-nominated Maysa (a member of Sigma Gamma Rho), Kirk Whalum, Regina Carter, Marion Meadows and many more. She has received numerous awards and accolades.
In 2001, the Baltimore Jazz Awards named her Up and Coming Jazz Artist of the Year. Lawmakers have even recognized her for her work in the entertainment industry.
