Try to free it from the plywood altogether, and then glue the cherry back together and ‘mount’ the cherry to the ply using elongated holes in the ply. That way the cherry can move. Short of that, cutting through the plywood will get you to the point the piece can be glued, but it will happen again more likely than not. Next time it may be a buckle rather than a crack.
