Childhood of Brown

Bobby Brown was born Robert Barisford Brown on February 5, 1969, in Boston, Massachusetts. Currently, he is 50 years old and his sun sign is Aquarius. The singer was parented by Herbert James Brown and Carole Elizabeth Williams who were both poor earners.

As per some reporters, Bobby Brown has seven siblings while some others record five siblings. However, only two of his siblings are known – Leolah and Tommy Brown.

Interests of Singer

Brown’s interest in music was kindled when he was only three years old as he watched legendary James perform in Boston. As his passion for music burned, he joined the church choir while he was growing up and was exceptional in the group as his voice stood out from the rest.

Being from a poor background, Brown had to do what he could to survive and so he got involved with gangsters and resorted to stealing. An incident where his friend was stabbed to death when he was eleven years old would forever redirect his steps from the streets and get him back to school.

Who is Bobby Brown Wife?

Brown married fellow pop star Whitney Houston in 1992, one of the most highly publicized celebrity weddings in history. However, their confused relationship started when they both drank heavily and became addicted to marijuana and cocaine.

Moreover, several times police arrested him throughout the 1990s for drug use and drunk driving, and rumors of marital infidelity and domestic violence.

Brown produced only one album, 1997’s Forever, which was a commercial dud during his 15 years of marriage to Houston. But Brown became more famous as Whitney Houston’s abusive husband than as an artist. Brown and Houston divorced in 2007.

Seeking to reinvent himself as an adult artist, Brown managed the next two years working with the acclaimed R&B songwriters and producers Teddy Riley, L.A. Reid, and Babyface. The result of their bonding was released in the summer of 1988. It was a radically new R&B album called Don’t Be Cruel that took the music world by storm, selling seven million copies.

Brown recorded “On Our Own,” the smash-hit theme song for the movie Ghostbusters II in the year. He released his third album, Bobby, featuring the singles “Humpin’ Around” and “Good Enough.”  He also received his first Grammy award for the best R&B vocal performance in 1990.

Bobby Brown’s Career

  • At the age of 12, Bobby formed a group with his friends Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant, and Ronnie DeVoe. They called themselves New Edition.
  • And they rehearsed with a focus and discipline very rare for a group of pre-teen boys.
  • New Edition was discovered after winning several talent shows.
  • Producer and talent scout Maurice Starr landed them a recording contract with a small label called Streetwise in 1983.
  • Additionally, that year they released their debut album, Candy Girl, a sugary sweet collection of songs that made the group an overnight sensation.
  • That track, “Candy Girl,” was highly reminiscent of The Jackson 5’s “ABC.”
  • Despite the enormous success of their music, the members of New Edition still only received the small salary stipulated in their exploitative contract with MCA.
  • Brown left the group in 1986 to pursue a solo career.
