Glennellen's city-life-fast-paced-soul grew up in the small beach-town of Foley, Alabama. At only 2 years old, Glennellen ran up onstage to steal the mic from her parents (both former singers in The New Christy Minstrels) during their performance, where she sang You Are My Sunshine to thousands of astounded onlookers. Stage fright is foreign to this singer-songwriter, who has 10+ years of vocal training in all genres/styles - including opera, classical, jazz, rock, and R&B. Glennellen is a firm believer in no limits - and she applies that to her music greatly, incorporating the best of all musical styles and genres through her music and vocals.
The young redhead amazed the American Idol judges at only 15 years old, and was asked to return a few years later after she'd gained more experience "before braving Hollywood." At 19, Glennellen returned to the show - this time, soaring through to Hollywood week with a golden ticket in hand.
Since then, Glennellen has moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of her music career, as well as acting and modeling. She plays the recurring role of Nicole on the hit Netflix series, "STRANGER THINGS," and made a guest star appearance as high school lacrosse baddie Brooke on AwesomenessTV's "VERSUS." Glennellen can be seen as the leading role of the beloved role of Mary Lennox in the new Steampunk adaptation of the iconic classic tale, "THE SECRET GARDEN," by Frances Hodgeson Burnett. She was also asked to make a guest star appearance in the upcoming FOX pilot, "THIN ICE."
Despite Glennellen's kind-natured soul, she often plays mean girl roles onscreen. Casting directors are beginning to acclaim her as "this generation's new Rachel McAdams," with "the scene-stealing skills of a supporting actress, just seconds away from landing her leading lady status."
After less than a year auditioning in LA, Glennellen also booked three national commercials for Disney, Dairy Management INC., Select-Quote Insurance, and Kotex. She has become dearly loved by top casting directors along both the east coast AND west coast, as well as producers and other artists in the music industry.
