1969: Singer Bobby Brown, who got his start with the R&B band New Edition before finding success as a solo artist, is born in Boston, Massachusetts. Brown had a string of top 10 hits between 1986 and 1992, including his signature song "My Prerogative," and won a Grammy, but is just as remembered today for being the ex-husband of the late pop star Whitney Houston.
