On Saturday, September 17,, The GRAMMY Museum (L.A.) will unveil the opening of “Say It Loud: The Genius of James Brown”. The exhibit will focus on James Brown as the “Godfather of Soul” – blazing a trail in American music by blending gospel, pop and soul as well as show Brown’s role as a trendsetter in both fashion and dance. The exhibit will also illustrate how Brown used his music and celebrity to positively impact the Civil Rights Movement and race relations of the 1960’s. Brown’s daughter, Deanna Brown will make a special appearance in celebration of the unveiling of her father’s exhibit. Bringing together a collection of diverse artifacts, rare photographs and more, the exhibit features items from the private collection of the Brown family. “I am humbled about this very deserving exhibit on my father. I truly appreciate the efforts of the GRAMMY Museum”, say Brown-Thomas. “The exhibit speaks volumes about the life and career of my father by showcasing many different aspects of his life both personal and professional. If he were here; he would thank God for this opportunity, as it will be viewed by his fans from all over the world and especially the youth who will experience the genius of James Brown and his explosive and positive impact on the music industry”. The “Say it Loud: The Genius of James Brown” will display a variety of items ranging from Stage costumes worn by Brown, including one of his signature capes, early albums, rare photographs of Brown both on and off stage, handwritten lyrics, ticket stubs, concert posters, tour books and fan memorabilia to name a few.  Brown also expressed,“Dad always talked about the importance of clean music and how he constantly encouraged young artists to ‘keep it clean for Mama’. May those who visit the exhibit be enlightened and inspired by the Soul of America’s music, my father, ‘The Godfather of Soul’, Mr. James Brown.”
