Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

Disco is James Brown, hip-hop is James Brown, rap is James Brown; you know what I'm saying? You hear all the rappers, 90% of their music is me. See more »

Trivia:

US Secretary of State General Colin Powell appointed Brown to be the first US "secretary of soul and foreign minister of funk", but said the job description for the post had not yet been drawn up. (December 2003). See more »

Trademark:

Cape -- in nearly every performance, James Brown would fall to his knees and a member of his entourage would come onstage and place a cape around his shoulders. He would then feign recovery only to fall onto his knees again - after doing this a couple of times James would break-out in one of his trademark dance moves and drive the crowd wild! See more »
