More Info:

Born and raised in Camden, NJ, Carrie Brown grew up in a musical family with a mother who would teach the precocious youngster to sing songs from Aretha Franklin, Mahalia Jackson, Tina Turner and other classic soul and gospel singers at a very young age, and Carrie began singing in church and elementary school. By the time Carrie was in the fifth grade, she could read music and play a variety of instruments. Brown's older sister Cindy became a big inspiration to Carrie as she watched her older sister become a background singer in her cousin Patti LaBelle's band and was also recruited to join the Legendary Supremes. Carrie vowed to follow in her sister's footsteps and had the privilege of learning from the huge music community she grew up around including Barbara Mason, Gamble & Huff, Barbara Ingram, The Ingram Brothers band, Evelyn Champagne King, and many others. While still in her teenage years, Carrie started getting studio gigs in Camden and Philadelphia singing background vocals for various artists and began performing locally with various bands singing lead vocals, duets and background vocals, all the while becoming intimately involved in the music community on many levels. She co-hosted a popular local TV show and received various awards for her singing and music business skills. In 2019, Carrie received the Dr. Martin Luther King Inspiration of Honor at the BMA's in Las Vegas, and previously was awarded by the representatives of the Black Caucus, recognition for the outstanding work being done in keeping live entertainment alive and for Carrie's community service. Brown created the Anti-Bullying Awards Show and received congressional recognition for her tireless work. Today Carrie sings and performs on various platforms all over the world and also hosts the popular "Say It Loud" radio talk show. Carrie has touched the hearts of the music community with her dedication to keeping the music alive and for her extraordinary vocal prowess. She recently teamed up with the legendary Philly soul producer and mentor Butch Ingram, with whom she collaborated with on the powerful new groove-laden single "Crucial," that is sure to gain her a wider audience and national recognition.
