Rising gospel star Bri has reached the Top 10 on Billboard’s Gospel Digital Tracks Chart for the second time within a month. Last month, Bri’s debut single “I’ll Be The One” hit the top spot, and her second release “Holy Spirit” debuts at No. 7 this week. It also reached No. 16 on the Top Singles chart.
“It’s an invitation for the Holy Spirit to come into our presence,” the 20-year-old singer says in a recent news release. “I connected with the message the first time I heard it because we need the Holy Spirit to flood the atmosphere and give us spiritual guidance on how to deal with our daily ups and downs.”
The smooth “Holy Spirit” (Marquis Boone Enterprises) hails from a digital maxi-single of the same name that features an instrumental version of the song, a radio edit, a sing-a-long track and an a cappella rendition. It’s rounded out with a rousing cover of “Break Every Chain” and “Fill Me Up” songwriter Will Reagan’s popular track “Set A Fire.” The “Set A Fire” tune rose to No. 26 on the Gospel Digital Tracks Chart this week.
Things are really moving for the Louisiana native. She’s got a calendar of concerts coming up, she’s on her way to Washington, D.C., to tape an episode of BET’s “Bobby Jones Gospel” television program, and on Tuesday, July 28, she will perform on Daystar Television’s “Brian Carn Live” at 8:30 p.m. CST.
“She’s a force to be reckoned with,” says Bri’s manager Marquis Boone. “She’s young, beautiful and loves Jesus. She fills a huge age gap in the gospel music industry.” Fans can keep up with Bri and her activities at www.brination.org.
