We all have influences but have you ever wondered who was the influence for some of the stars you may be familiar with?  When you look at the music world today, you can see a wide range of influences from the distant past right up to today.
I was thinking about this other day when one of my staff members came to me and was red faced with glee telling me how good a dancer Chris Brown is.  I asked him how would he like to see the origin of Mr. Brown's prowess and the link to the legends from where it all began? If so check out the links below in order of influence to each artist.

Enjoy!
