R. City, the singing duo best known for their Adam Levine collaboration “Locked Away”, paid a visit to Seacrest Studios at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The group, made up of brothers Theron and Timothy, met with patients and answered their questions.
Timothy and Theron grew up in the Virgin Islands and got an early start in the entertainment realm as dancers for a local performance group after they were seen dancing on the beach. The two began writing songs shortly thereafter, hitting big with “The Rain,” their first sale to none other than Akon. Since then, the brothers have composed songs for hit artists like Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna. Their most recent collaboration with Adam Levine was arranged by their producer, who also produced Maroon 5’s hit, “Sugar.”
We wish R.City luck on their upcoming tour and hope they visit again soon!
