ANTHONY BROWN & GROUP THERAPY
Gospel music legends and fans alike are abuzz about Stellar Award Winner Anthony Brown- a young, urban, musically endowed and gifted songwriter and vocalist. With an artistic pedigree that is steadily strengthening his stature and distinction, Brown is quickly becoming recognized as an up-and-coming force in the gospel music industry.
Since Maurette Brown Clark recorded the Billboard #1 hit he penned, “It Ain’t Over,” the man behind this dynamic offering is rising to the surface and singing of expectation and harvest. On Brown-Clark’s Stellar Award winning album “The Dream,” Brown also penned the project’s anthem of power, “Sovereign God.” He has also written and produced several songs on her newest project including the title cut and single, “I Hear the Sound of Victory”.
His prowess as a vocal leader is rare given his age. A music prodigy who began playing the piano at 3, he served as vocal director and vocal producer for the live recording of “The Dream” as well as on “Times of Refreshing,” the 2009 release of nationally-renowned praise and worship artist, Stephen Hurd. Due in part to his contributions, Brown-Clark and Hurd were awarded Stellar Awards for Praise and Worship CD of the Year in 2008 and 2009, respectively.
Brown, along with group therAPy, were featured in 2013 on both B.E.T.’s Celebration of Gospel and the Essence Music Festival. He has worked with such artists as Donald Lawrence, Donnie McClurkin, Stevie Wonder, Fred Hammond, Vashawn Mitchell, Myron Butler, Tasha Cobbs, and the legendary Caravans. He has also been a featured guest on Bobby Jones Gospel every year since 2010.
Brown serves as the Assistant Minister of Music at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden where John K. Jenkins, Sr. is Senior Pastor.
The self-titled debut album received a Dove Award Nomination for Best Contemporary Gospel/Urban Album of the Year in 2013 along with 11 Stellar Award Nominations and receiving awards for Best Contemporary Male Vocalist of the Year and Best Group Duo of the Year in 2014. “Testimony,” the first single from his release has been named by Billboard as the longest running Top 10 Gospel Radio Single to date.
His newly released single Worth, from his forthcoming project entitled Everyday Jesus, has already been named Billboard’s Most Added Song on Gospel Radio. The Live Recording of Everyday Jesus is expected to be released Summer 2015.
