Early Life and Education
Born Robert Barisford Brown on February 5, 1969, he is one of eight children sired by his parents.
At the early age of 3, Bobby drew his musical inspiration from the performance of James Brown.
The musician had done a show in Brown’s hometown, which gave him the courage to join the choir in his church a few years later. Brown was raised in Orchard Park Projects, a neighborhood in Roxbury.
At a young age, he and his friends formed a gang and started stealing to afford the things they wanted. His turning point came after witnessing the death of his friend, who was stabbed at 11 years of age.
The incident reminded Bobby of his one-time dream to become a singer. When he was 12 years old in 1981, Brown formed a band with his other friends and named it “New Edition.”
