About Me

Ryan Harris is a singer, actor, orator and a voice called to the front line of his generation. He makes up one third of the membership of the internationally acclaimed group The Brothers Harris, alongside his two brothers. Together The Brothers Harris travel as artists, singers, conference speakers and facilitators. Their passion is to see their generation walking in purity of their creative gifts.

Born in Washington DC to a musical/artistic family, Ryan had a natural ability to hum songs and learn tunes. His gift was developed and honed by family members so much so that he performed his first duet by the age of two.

At the age of six, Ryan and his twin auditioned for and were chosen from over 1000 applicants to come to Las Vegas, Nevada to participate in the Un Signed Artist World Showcase at worlds famous “MGM Grand Hotel”. They competed in the 7-13 division for Singing. The brothers’ won first place in the singing duo category and Ryan also won first place in the 7 -13 division for Commercial Monologues.

In July of 2004, Ryan & his twin brother made history with Disney, as the first ever twins or siblings employed in Disney’s history. They were also the first to ever double cast the role of Young Simba in the Award Winning Broadway Musical; The Lion King. In 2005 Ryan completed a 10 month tour, in the Broadway Production of Disney’s Lion King.

Ryan has performed overseas in Germany for a 40 city tour, and in Italy for the Rome music festival. He’s been featured as a guest act at Carnegie Hall, and has sung in tributes to celebrities such as Ron Howard, and Angelina Jolie. Through all of these experiences Ryan has had the opportunity to explore many genres and become proficient in Gospel, R&B, Pop, and Classical music.

Above all Ryan is a devoted student, learner, and lover of Jesus Christ. His relationship with Christ motivates him to live with a purpose, pursue it, and help others discover their purpose in life. Ryan travels as a singer, concert host, motivational speaker, youth minister, and worship leader. He also is a Talent representative for his business TBH Entertainment & Marketing LLC.

TBH Entertainment LLC, mentors other talented young artists about the Entertainment industry. Their classes offer opportunities for talented and gifted young artists, to develop integrity, confidence, self-esteem; and hone their craft while encouraging them to further their education and career in the entertainment industry.

TBH’s mission is to “Change the Culture, Reclaim A Generation.” Through this, Ryan desires to change the standard of societal culture, and show his generation there is a way to be effective without compromising one’s morals, or standards and purely love God.
