Lynnie Godfrey

Actor, Singer, Director, and Virtual Arts Board Member

Lynnie not only has a prolific career (which you can read more about below), but these days she is very excited about her radio program – LYNNIE GODFREY: STRAIGHT NO CHASER, with recent episodes focused on how the Arts has an impact on our education system and about the misunderstandings that we have in our society on different groups of people. The issues that are uppermost in her mind these days are world unity, world peace, and understanding each other through the Arts, and she is a driving force in Virtual Arts in producing programming that can inform people on things they don’t fully understand or are confused about.

Lynnie is currently working on Part 2 of her book, LYNNIE GODFREY: SHARING LESSONS LEARNED WHILE SEEKING THE SPOTLIGHT. You can purchase Part 1 at the link below!

Some highlights from Lynnie’s career include: INAUGURAL ARTIST to receive the SCRIMSHAW DISTINGUISHED VISITING ARTIST FUND, DRAMA DESK nomination for her Broadway debut performance in the Musical Revue EUBIE!  For excellence in Directing, she is the recipient of the TYRONE GUTHRIE Award as well as the NAACP Award for Producing. Further recognition was highlighted by receipt of the DRAMALOGUE and NAACP Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Supporting Actress for her portrayal in NO PLACE TO BE SOMEBODY. The AUDELCO Award was given to her for outstanding performance in SHUFFLE ALONG.  For her recording performance of SNOW QUEEN, both the AUDIO EARPHONE and BENJAMIN FRANKLIN Awards were received. Grammy recognition was received for her CDs, LYNNIE GODFREY DOES IT HER WAY and SPENDING THE HOLIDAY WITH LYNNIE GODFREY.

Lynnie is the former President  of FRIENDS OF MUSIC  (FOM) and a former member of the Performing Arts Board at ARTSQUEST.  She is President and CEO of GodLee Entertainment, Inc., her production company, which seeks new works to develop and to produce. She reigns as the Artistic Director of the Acting Ensemble ESSENCE OF ACTING.

Most recently, out of her concern for public consciousness through the Arts, Ms. Godfrey created the panel discussion Webinar: LYNNIE IN YOUR LIVING ROOM which deals with Diversity through the Arts. Excerpts of her webinar can be found on her website: www.lynniegodfrey.com.
