Songbird Briana "Bri" Babineaux, who boasts almost a half million followers on Instagram including Drake and Rhianna, is all packed and headed west to sing the National Anthem when the Los Angeles Sparks take on the Phoenix Mercury on Friday, June 17 @7:30 PM PST at The Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA.
She will also perform during the halftime show. The Louisiana native's premiere album "Keys To My Heart" (Marquis Boone/Tyscot Records) recently debuted at No. 1 on Billboard magazine's Gospel Albums sales chart and her "I'll Be The One" (available on iTunes: http://smarturl.it/qo5lrx) radio single peaked at No. 6 on its Gospel Airplay chart.
A former athlete herself, Bri played shooting guard on her high school basketball team and had a track scholarship to McNeese State prior to launching her singing career last year. Now, Bri is one of the busiest artists in the gospel world. She recently presented during the 31st annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards and was profiled in The New York Times a couple of weeks ago. She's got a full schedule of dates on the horizon too. Visit www.brination.org for more #Brination news and information.
