Meet the New Diva: Brave Williams


Meet the new Diva, young and fresh Brave Williams and watch the season premiere on February 11, 10/9c.

At an early age, Brave embraced her musical talents, having already started her musical career when casted as a Lead Singer for the MTV Reality show, P. Diddy’s “Making The Band”. Although she was subdued from the reality show by the struggle of her father’s diagnosis of prostate cancer and early signs of dementia, her talent was still destined for success, which she earnestly grappled for. The Grammy award-winning producer, Rich Harrison, found Brave’s vocal innocence and talent captivating and signed her under Columbia Records. Having later been dropped from the record label, she was devastated by the sound of Beyoncé’s “Crazy In love,” a track that was originally created for her while recording with Harrison.

Determined to follow her soul and pursue her musical dreams, Brave moved to Los Angeles. After three years of development and hard work, Brave found herself in front of Rich Harrison once again; however, this time with the idea of an all-girl group which she named “Richgirl.” Brave, the soul creator of the group, took the lead in landing “Richgirl” a major deal with Jive Records. The group instantly created billboard hits including their first singles “24’s” and “He Ain’t Wit Me Now.” Having gained the attention of followers including Beyoncé Knowles, in 2009 Brave and the group toured as the opening act for Beyoncé’s “I am Sasha Fierce” tour. “Richgirl’s” success continued with national performances including the main acts for the Burger King Summer tour and T-Mobile tour, succeeded by the release of their third single “Swagger Right” featuring Rick Ross and Fabulous.

Brave continued to encircle her diligence within the world of the performing arts when casted in lead roles of theater performances including Veronica in “The Diary of a Catholic School Girl”, and Meredith in “Lady Love”. However, in 2011, with the loss of her father Joseph Williams, manager Maynard C. Vigil, and break-up of the group “Richgirl,” Brave stronger than ever, distended to the verity of her name. Brave journeyed to locate the boxing ring as a battleground between her tranquility and feelings of anguish derived from such major losses in her life. For weeks she trained persistently; however, after overcoming a near defining injury from her forth-competitive match that practically jeopardized her musical career, Brave began to prioritize the importance of her born destiny.

Now in 2014…. Bigger, Better and Braver…. Brave is working on her own project forming an iron-clad team, writing her own songs and overseeing treatments of her videos, while being one hundred percent dedicated towards controlling her own career destiny. She is tenacious in her pursuit of dominating the performing arts industry with securing roles in both television and film such as the lead role in Omarion’s M.I.A. music video produced by Universal Music, the feature of Bambi on BET’s “The Get Up”, and a featured singer in TLC’s “Crazy Sexy Cool” film on VH1. She continues to strive beyond what’s expected of her Braveness, by also sanctioning time for those less fortunate through Associated Black Charities (ABC), as well as her own personal philanthropic missions. Remaining ceaseless and unremitting, with the voice and fuel to light up a city, an independent, unstoppable, fire-driven Brave is now unleashing her complete self on an upcoming EP, “FEARLESS”
