About

Native of Chicago IL, Kendra Glenn, the product of a musical family, realized her gift of singing at the tender age of 10 when she began singing in the church choir.

It was one fateful day when she sang a soul-stirring rendition of “I love Jesus” that it became evident to not only herself but to family and friends alike that this “Diva: was destined to perform. And that she has done.  Kendra moved to the Twin cities in the early 90’s and has definitely made herself a household name on the entertainment scene, her rich soulful tone and vocal styling are undeniable. She’s definitely the “real deal”. Throughout her 23 years of performing she’s been a studio session singer for Andy Kotz productions and also the well-known Pachyderm studios.  She’s worked with several local bands here in the cities as well, which currently includes her own band KGB (Kendra Glenn Band). She’s worked with Nicholas David Mrozinski and the feeling band (3rd winner up on the Voice) R-Factor formerly Rupert’s Orchestra, Brian Kinney Band and countless others. She has also sang backgrounds for National recording artist such as: Scott Holt, former blues guitarist for Buddy Guy, Prince’s protégés, Sue Ann Carwell, also Marvin “One” Gunn member of The Mazarati Band,  Joaquin “Quino” Whinny from the Reggae band Big Mountain, Jimi Behringer former guitarist to Prince, Laura Brannigan, Jeff Lorber and Bobby Caldwell, and Mr. Andre Fischer Grammy award winning writer and producer for Rufus and Chaka Khan, and Senior VP for MCA records.
