Robbie Britt

Robbie began singing at the tender age of fourteen years old. The first song he sang in public was called "The Little Boy from the Carpenter Shop" at a little church in Yuma, Arizona where he was visiting his brother. And with that humble beginning, one could see "this kid has great potential."

As Robbie grew up, he became involved with his school choir, and sought opportunities to participate in music competitions and enjoyed success along the way. His deep bass-baritone voice enabled him to win or place high in numerous opera and gospel music competitions.

Later, he began to sing at churches and do volunteer work for an organization near to his heart, Childhelp USA®. Childhelp has always been special to Robbie and he continues to perform for this organization from time to time.

Eventually, Robbie’s talents had him branch out to many different groups, companies and organizations. In every performance, Robbie has always given the public more than they bargained for. Part of the reason for this is his generous attitude and his deep religious convictions. In his words "I owe the Lord everything. I would be nothing without Him".

Today, Robbie is heard around the world. He has performed in far away places to include England, Israel, where he sang at the Garden Tomb, the Ukraine, and in South Africa.

Some of the better known stateside venues and events include: The Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, CA., the Kennedy Center Concert Hall in Washington, D. C., in many cities for Childhelp USA®, the Republican National Convention in San Diego, CA., The International Trade Fair in Washington, D.C., and at the Nixon Birthplace and Library in Yorba Linda, Calif.

Robbie has opened such events as P.B.A. Tournaments for E.S.P.N., Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball games, San Diego Chargers football games, and Los Angeles Lakers basketball games.

The Moreno Valley Wind Symphony continues to be a favorite “stop” for Robbie. When his schedule permits, he is always excited to return and share his talents with his favorite wind symphony and the Moreno Valley community.
