Brandon Person – Media Personality
Brandon Person is an African American singer/Actor and Worship Leader from Memphis, TN. His 37 years of life have been filled with revelations of what it truly means to be a giver, a lover of God and His word and what art truly is.
He discovered a love of acting only 3 short years ago. Like many before him, the minute he opened his mouth to read the first line, sing the first note and show up for rehearsals, he knew that’s where he belonged. The acting ‘bug’ hit him hard and he performed in several smaller productions of Tony Award Winning Broadway Plays, including All The Way, Sarafina! and Lin Manuel Miranda’s magnum opus ‘In The Heights,’ among others.
He got his start and first guest media journalist spot, ironically enough, when he asked about wanting to be an anchor when interviewed by Ms. Mary Ann Washington for the stage play All The Way. Brandon is thankful that he got that chance that wonderful day at Playhouse on the Square.
Brandon Person is the author of “Lights Camera Journal”.
