Born Christopher Maurice Brown on May 5, 1989, in Tappahannock, Virginia, Chris taught himself to dance at young age copying his inspiration Michael Jackson. Chris started performing in his church choir and local talent shows. Chris’s mother recognized his vocal talent while he was performing an Usher song. She began to look for a record deals, for her son. At a young age Chris had personal issues. Chris was terrified of his mother’s boyfriend all the time, due to his domestic violence against his mother. Chris had no idea that seeing his mother being beat on by her boyfriend for years before would have a profound affect on him. I think growing up around that kind of violence does have an affect on children. When little girls see their mothers being beat on continuously, more than likely they are drawn to the same kind of male figure. Little boys when they see this kind of violence they think it is all right to beat on females. Chris was charged with domestic violence against Rihanna in 2009.
Chris Brown has put this domestic violence charge behind him. Even though his sponsors at the time dropped him and radio stations took his music off the play list. In 2010 on the BET Awards he performed a tribute to Michael Jackson. While singing “Man in the Mirror” Chris started crying and fell to his knees. I saw his performance, I was even choked up, he truly sung from the heart. I can imagine what he was going through and how sorry he was for everything he had done the year before. Chris Brown collaborated with Tyga they came out with a mix tape titled “Fan of a Fan” in 2010. “Deuces” featuring Tyga and Kevin McCall, this single hit number one on the R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart for seven consecutive weeks. Giving Chris Brown his first number one hit single since “Say Goodbye” in 2006. Chris’s album F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies) has two singles “Yeah 3x” released in October 2010 and “Look at Me Now” Featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes released in January 2011. F.A.M.E. album will be released in March of 2011. Will this album earn Chris Brown some more number one hits or a Grammy ?
