About BlackGryph0n

Gabriel Brown, aka Black Gryph0n, came to YouTube off the heels of an international singing and medal-earning career with the US Navy. Now, the veteran has found enormous success for his mind-blowing pop singer and voice actor impressions. From Daft Punk, Frank Sinatra, Kermit the Frog and the Avengers to genre-switching challenges like "Eminem + Jazz," Gabriel’s impression videos regularly amass millions of views, including 91M for his 2019 "ONE GUY, 54 VOICES." Celebrating a massive feat of hitting 3M subs this year, Gabriel often uses his many voices for good, including creating original song "20 Million Trees" for the #TeamTrees 2019 fundraiser.
