A considerable music prodigy, Anthony Brown began playing the piano at the very young age of 3 years old. Since that age, Brown has gone on to hone his gifts to become an unparalleled talent, music influencer, and gifted songwriter.
Over the last few years, Brown has steadily strengthened his brand in Gospel music. As a go-to songwriter and vocal arranger, Brown broke through when he penned Maurette Brown Clark’s #1 Billboard song, “It Ain’t Over.” Since that time, Brown has gone on to write and produce several more songs for Brown-Clark, and a bevy of other artists.
While Anthony Brown has solidified himself as a creative force in Gospel music, as a vocal director, producer, songwriter, worship leader and singer, Brown’s endless attributes belie his humble approach to music.
Brown emerged as a top artist when he released his self-titled debut album in 2012. The album earned a Dove Award Nomination for Best Contemporary Gospel/Urban Album of the Year along with 11 Stellar Award Nominations, where he won two Stellars for Best Contemporary Male Vocalist of the Year and Best Group Duo of the Year.
The freshman project was propelled by his first Number 1 song “Testimony,” which was named by Billboard Magazine as the longest running Top 10 Gospel Radio Single in 2013.
Proving he was more than a flash in the pan, Brown released his second album, “Everyday Jesus,” in 2015 which earned him his first Grammy® Award nomination, 3 Billboard Music Award nominations, and multiple Stellar Award trophies. Sweeping the 2016 Stellar Awards, Brown walked away with an unprecedented 10 awards, the most won by any artist in one year. The massive single, “Worth,” which has literally taken the world by storm was the Number 1 Gospel single for over 27 weeks and was the best-selling gospel digital single for weeks.
Brown and his longtime ensemble, group therAPy, have been featured on national platforms including Essence Festival, Bishop TD Jakes’ Megafest, the New Orleans Jazz Festival and more. Brown continues to serve as the Assistant Minister of Music at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden where John K. Jenkins, Sr. is Senior Pastor.
