Soul Sensation Glori

Soul Sensation Glori
Born in suburban Lake County, IL, Glori gained an inspiration for writing early on. She began writing poetry of love, and politics, which later turned into song during her high school years. Not so much influenced by popular music, but that of a more non commercial focus with artists such as Talib Kweli, Jill Scott, Common, Mos Def and others, Glori feels her ultimate goal is to connect with people, and garner them to understand and feel her point of views including love and life. Concluding her high school years, Glori connected with then local producer "Soundtrakk" of North Chicago, IL, and began her first set of studio recordings as a hobby, while unknowingly; both were perfecting a craft that would lead towards a path of success.
The completion of her latest single, "She Don’t Have To Know" since has reached over a million digital plays via social networking and digital radio/music/media sites, as well as being performed at Actress Lisa Raye's birthday bash, Navy Pier Chicago, Riverdale Marina, College of Lake County and more. In 2009, video for the hit single hit the web, under direction of local video guru Alvin "Scholar" Elmore, and to date, has reached heights of over 25k views via YouTube. With no commercial radio effort, "She Don’t Have To Know", a tale of love and controversy, has made its way to reach, connect, and inspire millions worldwide.
