When 20-year-old Timmy Brown graduated from Norton High School, he made several sacrifices towards achieving his dream of becoming a famous singer. He is one step closer to that goal after auditioning for “The Voice,” “American Idol” and producing a cover album.
Brown attended Rhode Island College for a year and a half before making the difficult decision to put his education on hold.
“I know many people have mix feelings about this, but I need to do what my gut tells me,” Brown said. “Don't get me wrong I love school, and I am definitely planning on going back either in the spring or next year at some point. I just have so many opportunities and I have so much motivation to achieve this [dream] and I need to put 110 percent effort into it.”
While living in Florida, Brown auditioned for the American Idol Experience. He won a ticket that would have allowed him to go to the front of any audition line for next season’s American Idol. Because he also tried out for “The Voice” airing this spring, however, Brown had to make the decision to wait a year before auditioning for “Idol.” Brown says while he believes the audition went really well, he is still waiting to hear back from producers and asks everyone to cross their fingers for him.
“Take my word, I will not give up until you see me on TV or hear me on the radio someday.”
With the help of his father, Jim, and Ron Ross who books and plans his events, Brown has recorded “Timmy Brown’s Country Favorites,” a 10-song CD available at . The album, which costs $10, includes his rendition of “Rolling in the Deep,” “Desperado,” “Laughed Until We Cried” and more. People can pay with cash or check payable to Timmy Brown Entertainment.
Though this album does not contain any original songs, Brown says he is working on and thinking about a few.
The CD may also be purchased by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Shipping is $3. Once Timmy Brown Entertainment has received a check for $13, the CD will be mailed out and received within two days.
"I have spent a lot of money out of my own pocket, time and effort to record this," Brown said. "I recorded to get my name out there and give to people so they get a little taste of my voice."
Proceeds from the album will help Brown boost his career and will go toward the recording of a 10-song Christmas album scheduled for completion in November.
“I thank everyone for the support and I truly appreciate everyone's positivity,” Brown said.
