Fame and immortality await people who are brave enough to take the long and arduous road to a career in the music industry. With so many names joining the roster daily, it can be intimidating for most people to put themselves out there as they fear failure. However, Glo Anqunette has built a career performing under her stage name Goddess Glo and strives to inspire the next generation to take the risk.
Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, Glo Anqunette spent her life surrounded by blinding lights. Her parents divorced when she was aged 5 and her single mother had to raise her alone. Regardless of these challenging circumstances, her ambitious spirit still took over.
With the city chock full of talented people, she started yearning for a life where she could live out her days doing what she loved — singing. But life was not going to give her that willingly. Realizing there was much work to do, Glo set it upon herself to build her own path. Growing up in hardship, there were moments when it seemed as if yielding was the only option she had, but Glo was determined to realize her goals. “Never give up is always the motto,” she proudly shared.
While most people dream of a music career to pursue their passion, Glo wanted to do more than revel in praises for her talent. Music is her greatest passion, but Glo wanted to go beyond and impact the community. Having gone through difficult situations, she knew what it was like to be in unfavorable circumstances. To achieve this goal, Glo studied at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, obtaining a BA in Urban Affairs, minoring in History, and acquiring her AA in public relations.
Since then, Glo Anqunette took the opportunity to indulge in her love for music. Taking the stage name Goddess Glo, she has been performing since 2011. Early in her music career, Goddess Glo started practicing her passion for giving back to the community by working as a substitute teacher. Her work saw her collaborating with the youth step team and BSU Black students union.
As an artist, Goddess Glo thrives performing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and country-pop. She strives to create music that her listeners can connect with. Goddess Glo takes pride in writing her own music and has opted to avoid cursing in her songs. “In today’s times, we see so many people have material written for them,” she explained, “But does it truly connect the artist with the work?”
As her career moved towards the direction she wanted, Goddess Glo created her company Glowing Star Media to hold community events and concerts. The company provides quality creative services that involve PR coverage, PR building, crisis management, event coordination, and marketing. Since its creation, Glowing Star Media has been building and promoting brands with custom-made solutions that uplift her clients.
By 2017, the community-driven artist started the notion of Music with Fashion. Multi-talented, Goddess Glo exercised her talent as a seamstress and stylist by creating her own performance outfits to contribute to her musical statements.
While the road may have been long, Goddess Glo is jovial to have reached her goals. However, she believes that it is only the beginning as she strives to make her name known to the world, not just for her music but also her humanitarianism.
