He proved to be a quick learner and was the recipient of many accolades and awards, most notably a performance at the famed Carnegie Hall for a young artist showcase. At the age of 16 Glyne’s family moved to Florida where he shifted his creative energies towards singing and acting with lead roles in numerous plays and musicals, One of the highlights of his high school career was participating as a vocalist in the Sound of America Honor band and chorus, a European touring group comprised of selected high school students from around the United States. Glyne had the privilege of serving as the sole representative from the state of Florida. Glyne graduated high school being voted as “Most Talented,” by his peers, and set his sights on pursuing an Electrical Engineering degree at Florida State University located in Tallahassee, FL. At Florida State University Glyne fully immersed himself into singing while pursuing his engineering degree. As a member of the famed Florida State University Singers he tackled complex classical choral pieces, and simultaneously as a member of Florida State University Gospel Choir developed a passion for Gospel/Christian music.

Glyne caught the Gospel bug and started serving as a choir director for a local church and could be seen in numerous ensembles and community groups ministering around the city and touring throughout the state of Florida. Upon graduation from Florida State University Glyne accepted a job with General Motors and moved to the Detroit, MI which at that time, was still touted as the mecca of Gospel music.
