Veronica "That's Just The Way It Is"

Hello! I am Veronica Brown.

My debut album "That's Just The Way It Is" was recorded in Detroit, Michigan in 1990, and released in 1991 on RKB Records, Independent Label from Southfield, Michigan.

The track "Last 2 Know" was also released on compilations along with other artists like Sheila E and Michael McDonald.

"Words That You Say"(Whitebird featuring Veronica Brown) was released in 1997 on Strictly Rhythm Label.

My music is still being played on radio stations all over the world, including Single Releases and Remixes of "That's Just The Way It Is" and "Last 2 Know"

I have now decided to make my debut album "That's Just The Way It Is" available for download on i-tunes or CD purchase on amazon.com

Born in Detroit, Michigan the fourth of eight children to Pastor Clarence and Stella Brown, I began my singing career at the age of four as a church soloist and choir member at my father's church.

At age eight, Berry Gordy offered my parents a recording contract. Since this meant leaving for New York that same day, my father declined.

Greatly inspired by my father's success as member of Detroit's original Midsouth Singers, I ventured out and became one of the lead vocalists of a female vocal group, "The Preacher's Daughters". The group first performed at Axel's Club on Eight Mile Road in Detroit, Thursday through Saturday cocktail hour, a novelty at the time.

After about three weeks the group became the most popular female performing act in the city. Many record labels started making offers, but I wasn't interested in recording deals at the time.

Later, the United States Department of Defense made me an offer to perform with the group at United States locations of Interest around the world. The group's first engagement took them to Iceland for ten days, then on to the rest of Europe, parts of Africa and Asia. "The Preacher's Daughters" represented USO during the 1980s and '90s.

During one of the tours I was offered a recording deal as a single artist. My first single "Last 2 Know", was released in Europe in 1991 by RKB Records of Southfield, Michigan. Shortly after the single release the entire album followed.

I have recorded for and appeared in radio and TV commercials.

The re-election campaign for Detroit's Mayor Coleman A. Young featured the commercial "Power for Tomorrow", where I performed next to named Detroit artists, among them acclaimed performers Aretha Franklin, The Four Tops, Was Not Was, The Enchantments, and many more.

In recognition of my accomplishments for the DOD and USO, I was presented the Key to the City of Detroit, and a Proclamation from the Detroit City Council. Other awards include the Department of Defense Awards for Entertainment and The White Nights Festival of Saint-Petersburg, Russia Award.
