TINA BROWN 
Born in upstate New York, Tina Marie Thompson grew up in a loving household. At the tender age of five, she was mimicking the all-time Motown favorites using a hairbrush as her microphone and her siblings as her audience. 
In 1981 Tina joined the Army and was sent to Europe. While serving her country, she still had the burning desire to be on stage doing what she loved best, singing. During a talent show in Germany, she was approached by a popular European vocalist named Betty O, who noticed a strong vocal similarity to Tina’s childhood influence, Gladys Knight; and she asked her to join her entourage as a back-up vocalist. While touring she opened for Earth, Wind, and Fire, Roger and Zapp, Clarence Carter and many more. 
After separating from the military, Tina settled in Clarksville, Tennessee, a military town outside of Nashville. She began singing at local fairs and night clubs opening up for Latimore, Denise LaSalle, J Blackfoot, Mel Waiters, Sir Charles Jones just to name a few. She also performed in a host of charity and community events sponsored by the City of Clarksville, TN, Chambers of Commerce, the American Cancer Society and local radio stations WABD, WCVQ, and WQQK. 
Since 1999, Tina Brown has become a household name in the middle Tennessee area. She had a standing booking at Callee’s Night Club for 7 years. She has also sung on Belle Street in Memphis, Tennessee, at the Blues City Café. She has done concerts and Festivals all over the middle Tennessee and Kentucky area. Now Tina has her own Festival in Clarksville, TN, known as the Tina Brown Band Blues and Jazz Festival, making history in Clarksville. 
With continuous blessings from God, Tina has been able to use the power of music to help non-profit organizations raise money. She has also used music to unite the community.
