Who is O’Ryan?
American R&B singer O’Ryan Omri Browner was born in Compton, California USA on 12 February 1987, making Aquarius his zodiac sign. He’s yet to make a breakthrough, and is perhaps known best for being the younger brother of American singer-songwriter Omari Ishmael ‘Omarion’ Grandberry; Omarion became popular while he was a member of the boy band B2K, and he’s been working on his solo career since they disbanded in 2004. Omarion’s debut album “O” topped the Billboard 200 Chart, as well as his second, “21”, released in 2006; he’s since released four more albums, and has also launched his acting career.
O’Ryan began singing wanting to follow in Omarion’s footsteps, and he’s steadily building a fanbase for himself on the internet.

O’Ryan and Omarion were raised in Inglewood, California by their father Trent Grandberry and mother Leslie Burrell; no other details have been disclosed about O’Ryan’s parents, because they prefer to be left out of media.
O’Ryan studied at a local elementary school in Inglewood, and was nine when he began singing for his friends and family members; he was also into sports while growing up, and was on his elementary school’s basketball team. O’Ryan progressed to a local high school in 2001 and then also became interested in acting, appearing in a number of school plays; he would later attend auditions for roles in TV series and movies, but hasn’t to this day been given an opportunity to launch his acting career.
