Glenn Carl Leonard is a native of Washington, DC, born June 11, 1947, and second oldest of 8 children born to Gennie and Pearlie Leonard who were originally from North Carolina.  The Leonard's were not unlike hundreds of thousands of poor families trying to survive in the inner cities of America. During the early years of Glenn's life, he was raised between Washington, DC and North Carolina.

Glenn started singing at the early age of 6 years old and by the time he reached 13 years old, he began to earn a living performing on stage, at parties, concerts, and as a recording artist. He had a dream of being an established, professional and successful entertainer.   With a lot of hard work, diligence, and determination, he successfully established three singing groups by the time he was in his early 20's called "The Chancellors," "Instant Groove," and "True Reflection." He was also a member of a popular and successful recording group from Washington, DC called "The Unifics."

Glenn's first recording was with "The Chancellors" on Cap City Records, a subsidiary of Septar Records in Washington, DC. He later recorded with "True Reflection" on Atlantic Records. In 1975 Glenn came to the attention of the world renowned and legendary Temptations of Motown.  As they say..."the rest is history."
