All Tennie Leonard ever wanted to do since the age of three was to sing to an audience. And for most of her early life she did, with much success. Ted Mack, Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin... Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Buddy Hackett and... TENNIE LEONARD!
"Tennie Leonard can put a song in the heart of all who hear her vibrant voice."
"She evoked the glamour of the Supper Club era."
"With naturalness and simplicity of style, Tennie proved to be a songwriter's - and an audience's - loving friend."
"...she began to weave her magic... her great phrasing and beautifully held notes blended effortlessly... One of the highlights of the evening, "Non, Ne Regrette Rien," sung in French, amazingly interpreted and highly dramatized with lighting, was reminiscent of the late legend, Edith Piaf."
