Charles Scott Leonard IV is a singer with the a cappella singing group Rockapella, the former house band on the PBS children's geography game show Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?. He was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, and attended Lawrence North High School, where he sang in a barbershop–doo wop group. Leonard then attended the University of Tampa on a baseball scholarship while studying as a voice major. After graduating in 1987, he got a job singing at Walt Disney World Resort that led to a similar singing job at Tokyo Disneyland in Japan for two years, where he fronted the pioneer Japanese electronic rock band Horizon, released a solo album, and became fluent in Japanese. Leonard returned to the US looking for a singing job in 1990. Having seen an ad in a New York performing arts newspaper, he auditioned to be the high tenor for Rockapella and got the position in September 1991, moving to New York City as a result. During Rockapella's stint as the house band on Carmen Sandiego, Leonard used his connections to the Japanese recording market to obtain a record deal for the group, resulting in seven CDs released in Japan on the ForLife Records label.
