During their move, Brown sang in churches and worked in the sugarcane field. Brown was raised in a spiritual household so it come to no surprise at age 12 he formed a quartet called Rookie four that sung religious songs; however, he wanted to become a professional boxer. Brown was always compared to his mother because their singing style was equivalent: voice, tone and precise articulation. Sadly his mother died two years later when he
They raised three children, while he worked in a metal alloys factory and she operated the church’s daycare center. They both retired early and followed two of their children when they moved out of the area. After moving, her husband had several hospitalizations due to cardiac issues, and since they weren’t old enough to qualify for Medicare, they collected a great number of medical bills. Instead of claiming bankruptcy, they foreclosed on their house, moved to one of their son’s rentals, and
I used to go, every Thursday at 7:30 p.m., to choir rehearsal and, while there I would sing praises to God along with other choir members, It never appealed to anyone to ask about the origin of these songs and how Gospel music came to us. We just sang what we were taught to sing. Well, one day while in choir rehearsal, I decided to ask about the origin of Gospel music. My choir director shouted, “It comes from black folks’ soul.” After he said this, I decided to research more about the origin of Gospel music and found out that African Americans started it and that it is then a music that African Americans feel, experience and sing.
Going to church every Sunday, and watching Saturday cartoons with my siblings piled on the floor established a nice grounded family affection. Once I moved to Benicia in first grade, the dynamics seemed to change and by third grade my parents got divorced. We stopped going to church since we didn 't

My mother grew up in a two-bedroom home in middle America—Boise, Idaho. She had a traditional family that included her mother, father, and a sister who was three years younger. For those reading my story, it might be hard to imagine why an entire family would move to a Commune in California. Let’s start at the beginning. It was a cold, Sunday morning in Boise, Idaho in 1953, and like most Sundays, my mother and grandmother headed to church services at the Owyhee Plaza Hotel.
We just arrived home from Vietnam and I decided to write a diary entry about everything that happened and that we did. So to start with I have always sung and especially with my sisters Gail and Cynthia and my mum, my mum used to sing to us when we were little and she still does. I think I’m the best singer out of us so when my sisters were going to the pub talent show in town without me I was pretty cross, but I ended up finding a way there and joining them on stage half way through. The pub in town is where we meet Dave Lovelace who is the reason why we were able to go to Vietnam and sing, after we convinced him to take us to the audition in Melbourne. Mum didn’t seem very happy with the idea of me going to Melbourne little own Vietnam because I’m too young apparently and I had to look after my kid, so I couldn’t go, for the first few days that is.
As I got older my brother introduced me to indie bands I grew to love. For example, Foster the People he told me to listen to their whole album instead of once song and that was the first full album I listened to and loved. Then, 2 years later, my still favorite band foster the people came to play at a one-day festival near my house. After weeks of convincing my mom if I could go, she finally said she yes!! That was my first concert
