Ballard will oversee what promises to be a hit-laden soundtrack.
He has written songs in half-a-dozen films including The Slugger’s Wife, Navy Seals, and Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.
Even though Ballard was only earning 0 a week, he was occupied full-time with the work he loved.
The same year he co-wrote “Man in the Mirror,” which appeared on Bad, Michael Jackson’s acclaimed sequel to Thriller. Ballard has worked with some of the most revered names in the industry: Aretha Franklin, Natalie Cole, Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, George Strait and Barbra Streisand, just to name a few.
Glen wrote and produced two tracks for Patti Austin entitled “Its Gonna Be Special” and “Shoot the Moon.” By the time Austin’s album came out in 1985, Ballard was writing and producing full time for his mentor, Quincy Jones, at Quest Records.
Once Ballard learned to apply his wide-range of musical sensibilities, he produced for rhythm and blues artist Evelyn “Champagne” King, Teddy Pendergrass, and Jack Wagner.
Glen was ten years old when he wrote his first song, and he was in local rock bands beginning in the fifth grade. When Glen was younger, Jerry Lee Lewis lived within ten miles of his Natchez home, and young Ballard grew up watching him perform.
Glen’s favorites included southern rhythm and blues singer Irma Thomas, Memphis-based soul singer Al Green, and nearly all of the great blues and jazz singers emerging from New Orleans.
