BriaMarie’s talents began to blossom at the age of three as she fervently mimicked the sounds of artists like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder, and Prince. By age eight, she was singing in the school chorus, reading music and mastering the violin. At age fifteen, she was regularly performing with her father in his local band and teaching herself piano. She quickly developed a flair for dance with fourteen years of cheerleading and four years of modern and jazz dance. She later incorporated dance, singing and acting in her roles in four high school musicals. As the Fresh Princess continued to progress artistically, she also excelled academically throughout high school graduated from Temple University magna cum laude with a 3.86 grade point average. Her path was predestined. Being the best in her craft meant working with the best.
BriaMarie’s tenacity and fortitude led to a meeting with multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning producer Carvin Haggins. After just two meetings, it was a fit. She is now the first artist signed to Ethical Music Entertainment. When asked what made her the one, Haggins responded by saying that she reminded him of himself with her sheer determination and willingness to learn. “She is a great student and her work ethic was just as important as her God given gift of an astounding vocal range.”?
Today, BriaMarie is very active in the community. She is an avid participator in anti-bullying campaigns including her own bullying awareness initiative called #LoveOverOctober, the Ethical Music Anti-Bullying Campaign with Carvin Haggins and the Making a Difference Campaign with Philadelphia Eagle, LeSean McCoy. During each campaign, she travels to schools and youth programs to discuss the dangers and solutions to bullying, share her own experiences and perform. In her most recent #LoveOverOctober program, she partnered with iChoose2Live and the Philadelphia 76ers and gifted over 250 students with complimentary 76ers tickets, bullying and suicide prevention pamphlets and more. In 2012, BriaMarie also released the “Proud to be an American” EP as a part of her “Rock Your Right to Vote” campaign encouraging young people to vote, in which a part of the proceeds benefit disabled veterans. She also serves the homeless at Chosen 300 Ministries in Philadelphia with her church.
