As a trumpeter, singer, pianist, arranger and composer, Britt has either worked behind the scenes in the studio, or live on stage with artists such as Josh Groban, Davie Bowie, Luther Vandross, Quincy Jones, Dionne Warwick, Jennifer Lopez, Boney James and countless others. Currently, he is the music producer for the hit TV show, “America Sings.” He also worked for The Temptations, becoming their youngest musical director, which led to work on the TV movie, “The Temptations Story.” Britt started performing and singing in church at an early age, in Cleveland, Ohio as the lead singer for his church’s choir. “Cleveland was the best,” said Johnny Britt. “And I didn’t even know it. I lived right down the street from Eddie Levert (of the O’Jays.) There was a lot of talent in our neighborhood, and a lot of singing going on, so at a very early age, I was in school.”
Britt debuted his new album, “Marvin Meets Miles,” June 12, 2016 at the Catalina Bar and Grill in Hollywood. But why a project that marries the talents of Marvin Gaye and Miles Davis?
