Brandy, Ray J And Their Commercial Bloodline

It may seem like Brandy brought her family into the limelight to a newer generation, but it was her parents who started it all. Her father, Willie Raymond Norwood, Sr., made a name for himself in the music business as a jazz musician in Mississippi, and eventually transformed into a known gospel singer. Willie Sr.’s love for gospel caught the attention of a two-year-old Brandy, who made her vocal debut in her church choir. It would be cliché to say the rest is history, but you can’t help it when it’s true.
