The 5 Browns, a classical piano group are Juilliard-trained siblings. They have appeared on Oprah, The View, and profiled on 60 Minutes.

Spokesman for the music group, Kimball Thomson, confirmed that the charges do involve Keith Brown’s daughters Desirae, now 32, Deondra, 30, and Melody, 26.

“The siblings of the classical piano quintet known as The 5 Browns have been in fame’s spotlight for nearly a decade, known as members of a wholesome, inseparable family.”

Apparently, the three adult daughters recently went public with their secret. The abuse allegedly took place when they were children. Reports indicate that the girls were under age 14 at the time of the alleged sodomy and molestation.

“A source close to the family told The Tribune the sisters called police after recently learning their father, who managed the quintet until 2008, planned to once again manage child musicians.”

Thomson said the kids broke their professional relationship with Keith Brown in October of 2008. The father used to be the 5 Browns manager, but has had no connection to the group since then.

“Keith Brown and Lisa Brown, 54, the mother of the group members, were hospitalized after the Valentine’s Day crash that mangled the Porsche beyond recognition in Little Cottonwood Canyon on the east side of the Salt Lake valley.”

The police think the crash was caused by a high rate of speed. The children visited their parents in the hospital following the car crash. Keith Brown and his wife are recovering.

Keith Brown is set to appear in court today. He faces life in prison on the first-degree felony and up to 15 years each on the second-degree felonies.

    I keep seeing the eerie parallels between these kids and the Smart family.
