Linda was born to Richard and Celestine Griner in Washington DC. Her mother was from the British West Indies (Kingston Jamaica) and her father was from Georgia.
Linda inherited her vocal talent from her mother and her tenacity from her father who was a great fighter Dick Griner. Who was a light heavy weight champion of the south.
She started performing at 8yrs of age singing gospel and traveling summers in small churches throughout the east coast. Linda went to school in DC and attended Howard University in the Nations Capital. She met her first manager Angelo Benedetti who immediately recognized her a talent night at the club he was managing called the Ko Ko Club. He enrolled her into Ophelia Modeling School in Washington DC which was a great finishing school for Linda....
