Mindy Gledhill doesn’t know what it means to quit. With all the odds mounted against her, Mindy has pushed forward her entire life with a dream of being a singer and a songwriter. A desire to perform and express herself through music has kept her going, even when teachers and friends were less than supportive. Mindy’s perseverance and dedication is now paying off. In September 2002, Mindy’s skills as a songwriter were noticed by Excel Entertainment Group's president Jeff Simpson and noted songwriter / performer / producer Kenneth Cope. Simpson and Cope immediately started working with Mindy, grooming her for an eventual album release with Excel’s inspirational label Lumen Records.
