Briana Babineaux, affectionately known as Bri, is best known for covering popular gospel songs online.
Before she was ever heard on terrestrial radio, hundreds of thousands of fans enjoyed hearing her heartfelt cover songs on YouTube. After turning down several offers to record R&B music, the Louisiana native released her debut gospel song “I’ll Be The One” (June 2015) and watched it spring onto four different Billboard Magazine sales charts including the Gospel Digital Songs chart where it hit the top spot. Since that time, the song has now become a Top 20 gospel radio hit and is inciting demand for Bri’s much-anticipated inaugural album ‘Keys To My Heart'.

Bri’ was raised by her mother and stepfather who is a pastor at Refuge Temple Ministries in Lafayette, Louisiana. She began to sing in the church at the age of five as a member of choirs and praise teams and continues to do so to this day. It was just something she did for fun at the time. “I never planned to become a professional singer,” she laughs.

However, after a romantic breakup some friends encouraged her to go out with them to get her mind off of her heartache. They were fooling around when she started to sing Tonex’s “Make Me Over”. One of her friends posted a camera phone video of it on YouTube around 3:00 AM and within hours her riveting cover had gone viral. “I guess I was releasing all of my hurt and emotion out through the song,” Bri recalls. That one video kicked off the #Brination phenomenon and her new fans began to request that she sing specific songs. She began to cover a variety of songs on social media and with each new video her fan base increased to the point that Bri was being courted by some of the top R&B producers to sign with their major label companies, but there was a problem. “I didn’t want to sing R&B,” she confesses. “I really don’t even listen to much R&B music. If I was going to sing for anybody, I wanted to sing for God.”

At her core, Bri is a worshipper.  “We can go day after day and smile like we’re okay in front of people but God sees the heart,” Bri confesses. “He sees the things we have hidden in our hearts whether it’s emotional pain, scars or anger. He wants total access. He wants the keys to open up the door to our hearts and once that door is open He can then uncover the hidden things and we can release them from our lives and then God can began to heal our hearts. I allowed God to have total access to my heart and once I did that I was able to release all the hurts I’ve experienced. I named the album ‘Keys To My Heart’ because each song is a testimony from an experience that I faced whether it was good or bad. Through this album, I’m letting #Brination have access to what was in my heart when I gave God the keys.”
