Sevyn Streeter discusses singing, songwriting and working with Chris Brown.

Sevyn Streeter

Chris is a huge part of my team.

Sevyn Streeter is ready. Actually, she’s been ready. The singer and songwriter from the small town of Haines City, Florida, has taken the long way to stardom. With all of the twists and turns her career took in its earliest stages, it’s obvious that she had to develop a thick skin and a strong sense of self to push forward. But push she did, and now she is closer than ever to fully realizing everything she’s been striving for.

“My journey has been a crazy one,” Streeter admits to New York-based journalist Todd Williams. “But it’s been great and it’s been necessary. I’ve been singing forever; I grew up singing in church. I met my manager, Tina Davis, and she introduced me to Chris Brown.”

Streeter is open about how much Brown’s guidance has helped her career. “Chris is a huge part of my team,” says Streeter. “I learned and still am learning so much from him — from writing songs to dancing. I learned a lot from him and he’s very encouraging."

From Florida to the Apollo Theater. From girl groups to established songwriter. Sevyn Streeter took the long way to get here. She isn’t letting anything sway her now.
