From Pimpin To Prayin
Robert “Bobby” Newt has performed on Soul Train, was a member of a boy band called The Newtrons and signed to MCA Records; he’s even stayed at Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch and he didn’t stop there. As a songwriter, he’s written Grammy nominated songs for TGT and Pleasure P, but now he has a different testimony. He’s turned his heart and musical talents toward God. This year, after his best friend R&B singer Tank posted Bobbys video on his Facebook Page, and after getting over 250,000 views, Bobby is now, more motivated than ever. Not all of his family subscribe to his formula for happiness, but he remains steadfast in his Holy pursuit. In his new chapters Bobby’s determined to rewrite history, evolve from his old thinking and change his family’s life for the better.
You may remember the “Newt” last name, Bobby’s father is Ron Newt a former big time pimp. Bobby’s twin brother was Ronnie Newt, who was killed in a convenience store robbery. Ronnie Newt sang with his brother Bobby and youngest brother Johnny in their R&B group the Newtrons.
