Glenn Leonard is a native of Washington D.C., growing up in DC and North Carolina.
Glenn started singing at the early age of 6 years old. At the ripe old age of 13 he began to earn a living performing on stage: for parties, concerts, and as a recording artist.
Glenn had a dream of being a successful, established professional entertainer. Through diligence, hard work and determination, Glenn successfully established 3 groups by the time he was in his early 20’s: The Chancellors, The Instant Groove, and The True Reflections. He was also a member of another popular and successful recording group from DC called The Unifics.
He recorded international releases with his first group, The Chancellors, on Cap City Records, a subsidiary of Septar Records and later his third group The True Reflection on Atlantic Records.
He then came to the attention of the world renowned Tempts in 1975. Glenn had a long illustrious career as their first tenor and lead singer from 1975 to December of 1983.
Glenn sang on 10 albums with the supergroup. Most noted for songs like, I’m on Fire; Go for It, The Best of Both Worlds, Eyes, Ever Ready Love, and the classic Silent Night from their world-reknown Christmas Album.
After leaving the group in 1984, he became a born again Christian. Mr. Leonard entered into the ministry full-time and was licensed in 1986. He became ordained and received a doctorate degree in the early 90’s. After starting several churches in the Houston, TX area, Glenn began touring internationally again with his own group in the late 1990s.
