Dennis Emmanuel Brown (February 1, 1957 – July 1, 1999) was a Jamaican reggae singer. During his prolific career, which began in the late 1960s when he was aged eleven, he recorded more than 75 albums and was one of the major stars of lovers rock, a sub-genre of reggae. Bob Marley cited Brown as his favourite singer,[1] dubbing him "The Crown Prince of Reggae"Dennis Brown was an inspiration and influence for many reggae singers from the late 1970s through to the 2000s,including Barrington Levy, Junior Reid, Frankie Paul, Luciano, Bushman, and Richie Stephens.[39]Brown sang two songs - Desmond Dekker's "Unity" and Johnnie Taylor's "Ain't That Loving You" - and after the audience showered the stage with money, he was able to buy his first suit with the proceeds.[4] Bandleader Byron Lee performed on the same bill, and was sufficiently impressed with Brown to book him to perform on package shows featuring visiting US artists, where he was billed as the "Boy Wonder".[4] As a young singer he was influenced by older contemporaries such as Delroy Wilson (who he later cited as the single greatest influence on his style of singing),[6] Errol Dunkley, John Holt,Ken Boothe, and Bob Andy. blogtalkradio.com/caribbeanradioshow Call-in 8-11pm on 661-467-2047 content: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Brown
