With his easy-going demeanor and charm, Chris Brown could easily be somebody that you know.
Chris isn't part of some A-list producer's camp. Nor does he hail from any of those famous urban music hubs like NYC, Compton or the ATL. Straight from Tappahannock, Virginia, population 2000, Chris Brown proves that real talent, persistence and charisma still have a place in the music industry.
One listen to Chris' voice and you're tempted to draw comparisons: Michael Jackson,
Tevin Campbell, and
Usher. But listen a bit longer and those comparisons begin to dissipate as it becomes clear that, while Chris certainly channels the creativity of those who have come before him, he definitely has a style, a flavor and a place in music that are all his own.
When Chris Brown says 'yo' it's as if he gives new meaning, new depth and whole new feeling to the word. Chris'
vocals are fresh and inviting, soulful and soaring. He wraps his emotions around each and every lyric and adds the right amount of passion, fun and swagger at just the right time.
Chris got his musical initiation early on, inspired by what he refers to as the "eclectic" taste of his parents and soaking in the sounds of his favorites: Michael Jackson, Sam Cooke,
Stevie Wonder, Donnie Hathaway,
Baker, and Aretha Franklin.
But, like most young boys, Chris was soon drawn to rap and was certain that he would be the first emcee to put
Tappahannock on the map. "I was rapping," he recalls. "I didn't understand that I could sing until I was like 11 or
12. My mom heard me singing around the house and she said, 'What are you doing? You really can sing!' So then I started going to school and singing to the girls."
By the time he was 13, Chris realized that his voice was more than just a chick magnet. His mother began to hook his son up with various producers. "When I went in and started working, there were ups and downs, but I loved it and I knew I wanted
to do it for the rest of my life."
Chris Brown's skills are fully-loaded as not only a talented vocalist, but a versatile songwriter, an amazing dancer and a young businessman who has learned the intricacies of the music industry.
