Where did Chris Brown grow up?

Family Life

Christopher Maurice Brown was born on May 5, 1989 in a town of Tappahannock, in Virginia populated at around 2000 people.

He is one of two siblings born to Clinton Brown and Joyce Hawkins. Brown was in love with music from an early age, ever since he could hear the music his parents played in the home radio. It's no surprise if numerous musicians of the 80s influenced his music; ranged from Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Sam Cooke, to Aretha Franklin.

At the age of 17, he has done things that most musicians don't have the chance to at the same age. He has launched his own album, written and sung his songs, co-directed his own videos, ended in double platinum, and traveled around the globe to smash another record of music tour, done by a not-yet licensed teen singer.


He used to go to a public school in Virginia, but since he could no longer attend common schools due to his hectic schedule, he got home schooling with a tutor who taught him 2-3 hours in the mornings.
