Leigh Born as Christopher Brown on May 5, 1989 in Tappahannock, Virginia, he has been drawn to music since his childhood and was heavily influenced by the sounds of Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Anita Baker. However, it was not until the age of 11 that he actually possessed an amazing voice, thanks to his mother who quickly noticed her son’s talent after she heard him singing around their house. Convinced that he could flourish his career in New York City, Chris went to this dazzling metropolis with the companion of his team. Trying to look for a reliable record company, he finally got the chance to audition in front of Tina Davis and Antonio “L.A.” Reid of Def Jam. Impressed with his talent, Davis, who later resigned from the label, afterwards signed to be his manager and took him to other companies, like Warner Bros, Atlantic, and Jive which he finally concluded to join in. Brown really has come with a loud thud into the R&B music scene. Being extremely busy going around U.S. and across the globe to hold some shows, he has become one of the year’s sensational acts in American music industry with his genuine style and creativity. Brown’s acting career has also seen him play the small role of a geek in the fourth season of the hugely popular show The O.C. This was followed by his film debut in Stomp The Yard, a dance movie that also featured Ne-Yo, Meagan Good and Columbus Short. He also featured in MTV’s My Super Sweet 16, which showed the singer celebrating his 18th birthday in New York.
