Anna Miriam Brown
Gifted songwriter Anna Miriam Brown, 18, is the writer of His Story the Musical, a theatrical production of the life of Jesus Christ with a sound many compare with the Hip-Hop of "Hamilton", emotional melodies of "Dear Evan Hansen", and orchestral beauty of Disney's "Alan Menken".
A dyslexic unable to read or write before 9 years old, Brown majored early in the arts as a homeschooler, before starting to pen her first songs as a 15-year-old. During a missionary trip to Africa, she started to assemble the songs which would become the musical. As a teenager who understands the power of social media, Brown sees an opportunity to reach her generation with the timeless story of light and hope. She says, “My heart for this project is to inspire curiosity about the Bible and to clearly and beautifully present the gospel in a way that doesn’t force Jesus down people’s throats, but instead clearly shows His character so that people will understand who He is and want to know Him personally.”
Music and recording professionals from around the world collaborated to produce HIS STORY, including the legendary Wendy Waldman’s Longhouse studios in LA, award-winning Christian singer Christine Dente’ as editor and consultant, medalist Atom String Quartet in Europe, and noted creative genius producer and pianist Pawel Zarecki in Warsaw, Poland.
Anna Miriam Brown sings the part of Mary. Gabriel Brown (a.k.a Black Gryph0n), who provided voice talent on many movie and TV productions including Pixar’s “Finding Dory” and has over a million subscribers on YouTube, sings the part of Peter, Satan, an angel and a Pharisee. Jamal Moore sings the part of Jesus, who has performed on TV and toured extensively, and emotive LA native Revel Day opens up the title number rapping the part of Matthew.
A couple comments from listeners:
“These songs evoke emotions and I had tears while listening. They bring you into each character’s fears, doubts, and excitement. Classical, Hip-Hop, rap, and Top 40; a beautiful marriage of old and new style.”
“I’m agnostic, but this song is absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait for the full release.”
HIS STORY is only the debut of many creative musical works by Anna Miriam Brown. She is already well along in writing yet another biblical musical, as well as a full album of pop love songs, all of which carry her unique mark of lyrical deftness and “get stuck in your head” melodies which stir the heart.
