The urban inspirational/gospel genre's latest shining star Briana "Bri" Babineaux is headling the second leg of Marquis Boone Enterprises' "New Artist on the Block" tour. The first leg of the tour launched in March, selling-out all seven cities and earning a major New York Times write-up revolving around Babineaux's meteoric rise to fame. This three-week extension tour features Geoffrey Golden from BET's reality show talent competition "Sunday Best" and YouTube singing sensation Kelontae Gavin.
The dynamic tour features a live band, background singers and kicks off July 5th in the Nashville suburb of Hendersonville and finishes July 21st in Dallas, TX. One of the songs Babineaux will perform on the tour will be her new radio single "Jacob's Song." She wrote the soaring ballad that is already impacting gospel radio formats after only a few days of servicing. "It came from a place of determination," she says. "I had been going through so much in my personal life and I was determined to be just like Jacob was in the Bible and I told God that I'm not letting go until you bless me. So this song means the world to me because it came from an experience that I overcame."
