AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Glenn Medeiros

Artist:Glenn Medeiros f/Bobby Brown
Song:She Ain't Worth It
Album:Glenn Medeiros

Teen pop singer Glenn Medeiros topped the charts with She Ain't Worth It in 1990 mostly because of Bobby Brown who was hot at the time. Medeiros was mainly a pop singer so this hip hop oriented song was a bit of a departure for him. He quickly faded and he's now a vice principal in his home state of Hawaii. He was born June 24, 1970 in Lihue, Hawaii. As a child, he would sing on his father's tour bus to entertain his dad's customers. At age 17, Medeiros won a local talent contest singing George Benson's Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You. An album was produced by a local label. An exec from radio station KZZP in Phoenix took it back to the mainland and the song reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100. And it got Medeiros a deal with Amherst Records which was owned by Buffalo record distributor Transcontinental. They were the home for the jazz group Spyrogyra for many years. Medeiros' subsequent singles didn't have the same success until Amherst sold Medeiros' contract to MCA and they asked Bobby Brown to help him. She Ain't Worth It topped the Billboard Hot 100 mostly because of Brown's rap on the record. He was a very big star at the time. Brown wrote the song with songwriter Antonina Armato who writes and produces a lot for Disney pop artists. The album was produced mostly by Denny Diante who was a house producer for United Artists in the 70s. He produced Paul Anka and Maxine Nightingale. That was about it for Medeiros. After his duet with Ray Parker Jr. All I'm Missing Is You reached the top 40, he returned to Hawaii. You can get both songs on this budget CD. Medeiros has recorded occasionally and he still performs regularly in a Wakiki hotel. But mostly he is vice principal at Maryknoll Grade School in Hawaii and he has a doctorate in education from University of Southern California. It turns out he's a pretty smart guy. Here's the video for She Ain't Worth It by Glenn Medeiros featuring Bobby Brown.
