Cierra Reynolds is a 21 year old vocalist born and raised in Largo, Florida. She was diagnosed with high functioning autism when she was 5 years old and spent much of her youth at speech, occupational, and social skills therapy. Cierra could sing before she could speak and has been singing ever since. Cierra has been fearlessly performing in talent shows, karaoke contests, and competitive vocal competitions since she was 6. One of the benefits of her autism is that she never gets nervous when performing and she’s an auditory learner, making it very easy for her to memorize sound and lyrics. Cierra recently graduated from a performing arts high school in St. Petersburg, Florida where she was a voice major. Cierra sang the national anthem for the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2019 season. The buzz around her performance earned her a spot as a feature story in the Tampa bay times and also landed her a live spot, singing the national anthem on Great Day Live Tampa Bay. Cierra is currently attending St. Petersburg College where she is a vocal major and she is the lead singer in a band. She is currently working on writing original music and hopes to be a successful performing artist. In partnership with the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism, her music to inspire people with autism, to believe that autism doesn’t limit your success and should never be ashamed to be autistic. Autism can be awesome-tism if you believe it.
