Glen started his singing career at the age of 13 and studied both practical and theory in voice and piano. He is certificated in voice coaching from the Victoria Music and Arts College London and is a residential singer on various popular TV-shows in Malta including 'Kalamita', 'Showtime', 'Sa 6' and 'Sibtijiet Flimkien'. In addition, Glen also played main roles in various musicals on the local stage, including 'Jesus Christ Super Star', 'Godspell' and 'Abba Mania'.

Glen Vella debuted in the Maltese selections for the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005 with the song "Appreciate". He tried to win the competition another 3 times, including a stint in 2009 with a short-lived group called Q. Again in November 2014, Glen participated in the Maltese national final for a chance to represent Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Austria with the song "Breakaway" written by Kevin Borg. He qualified to the Grand Final of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2015 and finished in 3rd place.
