Superstar siblings Brandy and Ray J Norwood are famous for their incredible vocal talent on the stage and screen, but they wouldn’t be anywhere without the support and guidance of their parents – entertainment manager and mom, Sonja and talented musical father, Willie Norwood. In Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business, viewers get a first hand glimpse into the lives of the Norwood family personally and professionally. Their company, Rn’B Productions, features an impressive roster of musical artists including Brandy, Ray J and their father Willie, who also serves as the company’s vocal coach. But with Sonja ready to step down as CEO, Brandy and Ray J have to fill her shoes while trying to take the family business to the next level. In this series, both Brandy and Ray J try to expand their careers. Brandy steps back into the music scene and teams up with famous producer, Timbaland, for a new album. Ray J steps out of his notorious bad boy image and collaborates with Rodney Jerkins and other popular R&B heavyweights. Sonja, the matriarch of the family, fights frustration trying to keep her family on track, while passing the business reins to Brandy and Ray. And, father, Willie continues to coach his famous children on life and music. Despite their success and celebrity status, the Norwoods are a typical American family who stick together. However, in the season finale, the Norwoods take a break from work for a family reunion in Mississippi. And unfortunately, Sonja and Willie’s relationship may have reached the breaking point.
