The Browns 2013It’s truly a family affair when The Browns hit the stage.  The musical stylings of Shelly, Michaela, Adam, and Andrew exude excitement and offer a life-changing experience to all who hear them.  They deliver the powerful message of the gospel through word and song that engages audiences of all ages.

Touring the United States for the past ten years, The Browns have received the prestigious honors of Top 10 Mixed Group of the Year twice and Top Horizon Group of the Year three times.  From singing over 30 shows at the Americana Theatre in Branson to Dollywood stages and on board Royal Caribbean and Carnival cruise ships this award winning family will inspire you with their close-knit family harmony and talent.  The Browns love what they do, love each other, and the audiences to whom they sing.  While the traveling can be hard Shelly said, “Because we know we’re called, it’s been worth it all.  God has opened the doors and there are adventures and blessings behind each one.”
