Bobby Brown was born on February 5, 1969 in Roxbury, Boston Massachusetts. He fathered seven children with four different women. Not too long ago, he was part of a group called New Edition with his childhood friends, Ralph Tresvant, Michael Bivins, Ricky Bell, and Ronnie DeVoe. Then later in the years, after Bobby left, Johnny Gill soon became a part of New Edition and replaced Bobby. In 1990, Bobby met Whitney at the Souls Trains Award of ‘89. After three years of dating, they ended up getting married on July 12, 1992. They were together for almost 15 years, until they divorced in ‘07. In 2012, Bobby remarried to his manager Alicia Etheredge.
As a young child, Bobby always dreamed of becoming a singer. According to “Biography.com “ He started out singing in church choir, where he distinguished himself with his beautiful and passionate voice”. Bobby always thought of himself as the heart of Soul music. While working hard, in 1986, he published his first solo album “King of the Stage ”. As stated in the biography, “Seeking to reinvent himself as an adult artist, Brown spent the next two years working closely with the acclaimed R&B songwriters and producers Teddy Riley, L.A. Reid and Babyface”. Bobby felt like he could’ve done better on his last album. Releasing his first album and not getting the buzz he thought he hoped. Later on in his music career, Bobby was getting compared to his childhood inspiration Michael Jackson.
To this day even though Bobby Brown is no longer a part of New Edition, they still remain best friends as they were when they were children. Although, through all his achievement, Bobby Brown also suffered many losses. His son Bobby Brown Jr. passed away due to an accidental overdose and his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown who was unresponsive, was in an induced coma, and died 6 months later. Drugs had been a part of Bobby’s life ever since he began his music career.
