Lynda Carter is so much more than a pretty face, not that we mind looking at it! She's got it all - the beauty, the brains, the voice. Lynda's been singing from the start, performing multiple different songs during beauty pageants before the start of her Hollywood career. Her signature song on the pageant stage was "When Will I Be Loved" by The Everly Brothers, but she also performed "Please Mr. Postman" by The Marvelettes and "Different Worlds" by Maureen McGovern. Little did she know that she would soon be moving on to an iconic role as Wonder Woman, and even getting to sing two songs in the 1979 episode, "Amazon Hot Wax".
