Glenn began singing as a child in church. He was involved in school choirs from Junior High into High School traveling many miles to sing with the Pine Bluff High School A Capella Choir and the Pine Bluff Singers in his junior and senior years. He was hired by his first gospel group at 19 years of age and traveled extensively with The Gospel Caravan. He left the group to begin a solo ministry during which he recorded his first solo album, "How About Your Heart". His music ministry was placed on a temporary hold when he enlisted in the US Army in April 1977. ---------
After serving our Country, Glenn was hired by the Police Department of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, where he served over 26 years. Upon retirement from the Police Department, Glenn began to travel and minister in song everywhere God opened a door for him, sometimes traveling as far as South Carolina and North Carolina.
In the summer of 2012 Glenn recorded a solo project with 15 songs entitled, "Singing the Gospel – Southern Style". This followed the next summer with a project titled, "Leavin' On My Mind". The last two tracks on that CD debuted the first Glenn Mixon & Redemption trio with his sister, Karen Mixon Copeland and his 16-year-old nephew, David Norwood. Because they were not able to travel as much, a search was conducted for other available singers with a heart for ministry. Beverly Cody would occasionally appear in a service and sing a song or two with Glenn. In August of 2014, Beverly called Glenn to ask him to join her in the studio to record some of the songs they had sang together in services over the past few months. She had also invited her sister, Debbie Smith, to be there as well and the three sat down for a little talk and the ladies made the decision to join with Glenn as a trio, Glenn Mixon & Redemption. On December 30, 2016, Glenn Mixon and Tonda Bradley were married in White Hall, Arkansas and the groups home location became Russellville, Arkansas.
Tonda Bradley grew up singing in church. Her dad is a retired Church of God pastor and they grew up singing out of the Red Back Hymnal. Tonda played piano for her church and her mom and her sang with a bluegrass group for several years. Tonda's husband and her raised their kids in a Free Will Baptist church and were both members of the choir. After he passed away, Tonda led praise and worship at an Assembly of God in Hattieville, AR. Music is part of who she is and gospel music is her roots. Tonda has enjoyed joining Glenn Mixon & Redemption. Meeting new people and worshiping with them through song has been one of the greatest blessings in her life. ---------
Loretta Page is a long-time member of the Praise and Worship team at Russellville First Assembly of God Church as well as a member of their choir. She is a wonderful addition to our trio even though she has only agreed to fill in until we can find a permanent replacement. She has a voice with an outstanding range and such a spirit of worship about her. We are grateful for her impact on our ministry!
