She also appeared in Angela Pierre and the Motown 4 at Cantrella Canady 02Cultural Park Theater in Cape Coral, and hosted the “As Small as a Mustard Seed: Planting as We Grow” Benefit Dinner at The New Beginnings of SWFL in March. She also understudied for the role of Silvia in Cultural Park Theater’s production of All Shook Up.

Canady finds staged reading useful for expanding and honing her formidable acting skills. She read the part of Inez Jessie in Soulforce at Florida Gulf Coast University on April 19 and Smoke during Angela Pierre 03Florida Repertory Theatre’s PlayLab staged reading.

Cantrella also currently co-hosts Destiny Radio Talk Show and is a member of the Gospel Jams Radio Show, Jam Crew.
