James Brown

Known for his title Godfather of Soul, James Brown left the world jazz and rhythm-and-blues music that is worth to be heard until today. Brown grew up in a difficult situation, his mother left the family when he was four years old. As a product of a broken family, Brown’s younger years were mostly bad memories of crime, imprisonment, and hard labor. He overcame childhood difficulties by forming a gospel group Swanees where he sang and played the drums. The group has evolved a lot, changing names from the Swanees to Famous Flames to James Brown Revue. His journey to success was never easy, he was named several titles throughout his career, but he became known for being “The Hardest-Working Man in Show Business."
