Chris Brown Bio Bio

Christopher Maurice Brown was raised in Tappahannock, Virginia, and grew up listening to Michael Jackson and Sam Cooke - singers that his parents frequently played in their home. A dancer since he was just 2-years-old, Brown didn't realize he had a vocal talent until he was eleven! Soon after he realized that he could belt tunes, the young talent was discovered at his father's gas station by a local production team. Best known for his 2005 number-one debut single "Run It!", Chris Brown has been "running it" up the charts ever since he was discovered.


It seems that these days Brown is the man standing under singer Rihanna's "Umbrella." Even though Brown has not confirmed reports, the talented duo has been spotted wining, dining and dancing all over the world.


Brown left school for the recording studio in late 2004 to begin working on his first alum titled Chris Brown which was released in November 2005. His hit single "Run It" off of his debut was #1 in the United States. In August 2006, Brown joined singer Ne-Yo on his 28-city Up Close and Personal Tour. In 2007, the teen phenom released his second album, Exclusive to rave reviews; his single "Kiss Kiss" from the album reached #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Brown has also appeared on the silver screen. In January 2007, he made his film debut in the dance movie Stomp The Yard, alongside his tour partner Ne-Yo.
