Cornelius "Little Brother" Brown
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1930
North Carolina, USA
Death: 1991

North American singer, he was a member of the doo-wop and soul music group known as "The New Silhouettes", that performed from 1961 to 1968 in Philadelphia. The original group, that became famous at the end of the fifties for their well-known song "Get a job" was called "The Silhouettes", name that they took from a song that was a hit in late 1957, "Silhouettes", sung by "The Rays". The "Silhouettes" group went into some changes during the time and Cornelius Brown, already a friend of the original group, replaced Raymond Edwards in 1961. He sang bass and was also a talented dancer, which led him to handle the group's coreography from that moment on. He continued to sing with the group until they disbanded in 1968, and continued to work with Rick Lewis performing in Philadelphia, in a group called "The Mighty Artisans and Company", with no recorded legacy, unfortunately. When the original four members of the group reunited (Richard "Rick" Lewis, Bill Horton, Earl Beal and Raymond Edwards)in 1980, he didn't take part in it. He died of a heart attack in 1991.
