Actor and singer-songwriter, Terron Brooks, will be opening Rahway Mayor Raymond Giacobbe’s 2021 Summer Concert Series on Thursday, Aug. 5.
“My passion took over to really see how music and the arts can really affect people in such an inspirational and positive way,” he continued. “That’s when I told myself that I wanted to do this with my life. But school was probably the catalyst. When teachers and anyone that’s inspirational pours into you, you kind of see yourself in a different way. My parents knew that I sang, but they weren’t stage parents to know to push me, which I’m happy they didn’t. But I just think I had an inner connection — I’ve been given a gift and I just want to share it.”
According to unionnewsdaily.com, Brooks, a two-time NAACP Award–nominated actor who has appeared on Broadway in “The Lion King” and “Hairspray,” is widely known for playing Eddie Kendricks of The Temptations in the acclaimed miniseries “The Temptations.” He was also featured in the world premieres of “Sleepless in Seattle: The Musical” and “First Wives Club: The Musical” and has received a nomination for an Ovation Award for his role as Daddy Brubeck in “Sweet Charity.”
