Journey To BGT; Father Sue Bars And Melody
Leondre's journey started when he was just 13 years old after he met Charlie Lenehan through social networking sites in 2013. Their compassion for music made them form a band named Bars and Melody.
After five months of the formation of the band, the pair tried their luck in the eighth series of Britain's Got Talent, a.k.a BGT. They performed Hope by Twista, where their verses replaced the lyrics of anti-bullying.
Their performance led Simon Cowell to press the golden buzzer, which sent them straight to the live semifinals. The teen singing sensation cleared the semi-finals round, placing the third position in the finale. Though they placed third in the competition, they had managed to impress the panel of judges and the audiences. The judge, Simon Cowell was so impressed that he signed the boys a £500,000 record deal with his record label, Syco.

"I wrote Hopeful and it is a story of the struggles I've faced in my life and that gave the group international fame."
After Leondre reached the height in his career, his father further complaint that Leondre used to live with him until Bars and Melody's BGT success. And after he earned fame, he went on to live with his mother. He complained:
"When the success came I was pushed out but I'm the one who started Bars and Melody."

'"Bars and Melody are very happy with their management team and do not feel overworked or exploited.Bars and Melody are sorry to hear that legal action is being threatened and they hope it will resolved quickly and amicably."
