The Crazy Music Project

For Grace spokesperson Cynthia Toussaint has recorded her second CD as a follow-up to Wonder. Crazy was completed over a  seven year period, during which time she was challenged by Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, familial trauma, a broken elbow and, most recently, a breast cancer diagnosis (she is now cancer free.)  This effort is a testament to the healing power of expressive therapy (music, art, singing, acting, writing, etc.), and Toussaint has dedicated Crazy to “Women In Pain Who Know They’re Not.”

Dubbed “The Crazy Music Project”, Cynthia selected songs that she loved growing up, and that speak differently to her post-illness. Each song metaphorically explores a different part of her pain experience, and it is her hope that women in pain will find this nine-song collection  inspirational while bringing fun and hope to their lives. The over-all message of the project is that one should follow their passions (in this case, music and performance) as that is a sure path to better health and wellness.
