Who is Chris Brown?
Chris Brown is an American singer, dancer, and actor. Although many people know him as a singer, he has featured in quite a number of films, notably Stomp the Yard, a 2007 production, and Think like a man, where he appeared as part of the supporting cast.
Chris was born Christopher Maurice Brown, on the 5th of May, 1989 in the small town of Tappahannock, Virginia. His mother, Joyce Hawkins, is a retired Day Care Center Director. His father, Clinton Brown, was an officer at a prison in Virginia. Chris has only one sibling, an elder sister named Lytrell Bundy, who is a banker.
Chris Brown had a troubled childhood, marked by divorce and domestic violence. The violator was his mother’s second lover, who physically abused his mom as well.
However, it was also during his childhood that his remarkable talent in singing was discovered. He sang in his local church choir and participated in local talent competitions. His talent was simply unmatched. He was soon discovered by a local production team, Hitmission Records who helped land him an audition and later a contract with Def Jam Recordings. And that marked the beginning of his successful music career.

Chris Brown has a height of around 6 ft 1 inch, or 1.85 meters by the metric system. An ideal height for most guys, and it goes without saying that his height is one of the things ladies love about him.

Then I did the ‘New Flame’ video, we rehearsed for that, the BET Awards, couple of other shows. I was just always dancing, always dancing, trying to get my body back in shape.”
