Glenn Lewis is a Canadian R&B and neo soul singer-songwriter. Originally planning to pursue a career in animation as a teenager, Lewis instead decided to focus on music. His father was a member of the musical group Crack of Dawn. Lewis has cited Stevie Wonder as his biggest inspiration, and Lewis has often been compared to him because of the similarities in their tones.
In 2002, Lewis recorded a cover version of "Superstition" for the tribute album, Conception: An Interpretation of Stevie Wonder's Songs. He also makes a brief appearance in the 2002 film Maid in Manhattan starring Jennifer Lopez and Ralph Fiennes. He contributed the song "Fall Again" to the film's soundtrack. "Fall Again" was originally written by Walter Afanasieff and Robin Thicke for Michael Jackson's Invincible album to compose, but did not make it on the track list. However, a demo of the song by Michael Jackson was later released on the Michael Jackson: The Ultimate Collection CD set. A concert DVD, Glenn Lewis Live, was released in 2002.
Lewis prepared his second album, Back for More for release in 2003. The first single, also titled "Back for More", and featuring rapper Kardinal Offishall, was released to radio and a video began to air. Lewis netted a Grammy nomination for his contribution to Stanley Clarke's "Where Is the Love", a duet also featuring Amel Larrieux.
As of November 9, 2011, Lewis signed with EMI/Capitol records through Ruffhouse Entertainment which is expecting to release Lewis' 1st official single in early 2013 with an album tentatively scheduled for later that year. On April 29th, 2013 Lewis' first official single "Can't Say Love" debuted on his official website. His album "Moment of Truth" is scheduled to be released August 20th, 2013.
