RESILIENCE with Bria Armani!

27 Nov

Actress & Dancer, Bria Armani, was Created to Be Victorious! 

20170807_131005

Long before birth, a seed was planted that the world would soon come to witness its emergence! Bria Armani Johnson, native of New Orleans, Louisiana, is a budding American Actress and Dancer with emphasis in delivering Truth and Humility in her stage presence.

Bria Armani was a natural entertainer. At 3 years old, before learning to ride her first bicycle with¬†training wheels; Bria was already performing for family and friends. Not completely certain (in the beginning) of what direction or facet of entertainment Bria would pursue, Bria’s¬†Mother would encourage her to seek and do nothing but her absolute best!

The correlation between Bria’s Spiritual foundation and the amount of success she has experienced¬†at such a young age is noteworthy but not hard to believe. Bria attributes much of who she has become to her¬†Mother. In more ways than being an Actor and Dancer, her Mother taught her how to live and consider others. Bria would reflect on her Mother’s words, ‚ÄúLead by¬†Example‚ÄĚ. To Bria, that meant follow Her (and others who has her best interest in heart) lead; so one day- when it is Your¬†turn, you would be the Leader you were Truly born to be!

Bria Armani Represents Herself as an Ambassador of Change Through Her Captivating Performances! 

Bria is Esteemed by the Power of her support system! While she is ever learning from her¬†Mother of how to manage school and live Amicably, she receives constant cheer-leading from her Father and biggest fan, her younger brother. Overall, Bria’s parents have been¬†instrumental¬†throughout her entire life, teaching her and her brother to dig deep and pull out the best within!

Bria has searched and discovered her purpose to continue to walk in her calling for the plans that God has for her life; doing so by remaining humble, respectful and showing love to all.

Being resilient to her calling, Bria is also inspired by¬†Taraji P Henson¬†&¬†Janet Jackson. She regards them as Outstanding and having the ability to demonstrate Positivity. As Bria evolves into her own Artistic Range, she hopes to one day share scenes and take direct notes from the Leading Ladies who Brings their ‚ÄúA‚ÄĚ Game!

Bria is No Stranger to Hard Work! Although she is instinctively Ready, the level of work she would put in to give that Striking Encore, never escaped her! Bria is a Student of Hott Theater for Children with Lauren Hunt (where she is prepped and trained for Interviews/Audition Techniques, Commercials, Films, Confidence and so much More)! She has attended classes at Mademoiselle Dwyn School of Dance in New Orleans, LA (Training in areas of Ballet, Tap, and Jazz). She has also trained at ATLA Connect in Hip Hop and Majorette Dance. 

Bria’s Sense of¬†Dedication¬†is Beyond Comparison!¬†
Being a young entertainer is undeniably a task! Majority of her earlier acting career, Bria had a family-like bond with her peers. It wasn’t uncommon for them to champion each-others journeys’. Bria and her¬†Hott¬†Theater classmates entered a competition showcasing their talent. This would set the Entertaining precedent,¬†Rep Your Act 2017. As if the pressures of having to contend with her closest friends weren’t enough for Bria; each actor brought their own special sauce! Nonetheless, Bria never underestimated her ability to be great, as she now understood what was at stake. And honestly no one took it personally. Bria would learn, ultimately, her strength lied in her ability to care, exude much patience and remain connected. With a Recipe of High Expectations and Love, Bria would¬†WIN¬†the¬†2017 Rep Your Act Competition!¬†

As Bria would continue in her endeavors, she holds near (words to live by from her¬†Mother);¬†“Remember to Push, Pray, Praise and Remain Humble”.

Other trainings and TV/Film works would include but not be limited to¬†Madea‚Äôs¬†Boo Halloween, Middle School the Worst Years of¬†My¬†Life, (TV¬†One)¬†Saints and Sinners, (TPN Network)¬†Flags on the Field, Denied Unemployment , The Appeal, & Love Is All It Takes Stage Play (Eagle Vision Production).¬†Bria¬†has¬†also¬†had the¬†opportunity¬†to work closely with¬†Chike¬†Okonkwo¬†(BET’s Being Mary Jane)¬†and¬†Nate Parker¬†(Birth of a Nation).¬†¬†

“My Scene was Very Controversial, Being that I was a Little Black girl captured by ‚ÄúWill‚ÄĚ in bed with¬†my¬†White Master…..Mr. Parker Wanted to Make Sure I was Comfortable and Ready to master the scene he chose for me……Mr. Parker also asked my opinion for the scene after we ran through it once….¬†I gave him a suggestion and he actually used it in the movie!…I was excited, blown away, and just happy for this experience….¬†I even forgot I was on set for over 13 hours….¬†I will never forget the opportunity with working on set of Birth Of A Nation.!”¬†¬†

Bria’s fruitful journey thus far has made such an impression on her. She is simultaneously fueled with excitement and nervousness as she embarks on new levels. Her goals are to attend Julliard in New York City for College, and after¬†graduation¬†she seeks to become a full time Professional Actress, Director/Producer as well as owner of a Dance Studio in Atlanta, GA and New Orleans LA.

With an expression of gratitude to¬†Hott¬†Theater for Children’s own, Lauren Hunt, Bria Armani dreams to one day create a nonprofit foundation for less fortunate girls. One that would serve as a vehicle to not only provide shelter, but aid in Confidence building and allowing them to receive Free Lessons in the areas of Arts and Academics.

As it was rooted from birth, Bria Armani Johnson deems herself a Winner and she effortlessly seizes the¬†opportunity¬†to champion her friends and family’s with success and well wishes.

‚ÄúContinue to Bring Your A Game!‚ÄĚ, says Bria¬†

Rising Star /The Exception

30 Jun

Brenda Smith Dubone is THE Exception.

American Actress/Host/ Model, Brenda Smith Dubone is known to be THE Exception!

Brenda is a Memphis, TN Native who relocated to Atlanta Georgia in 2013. After having been a veteran of the City of Memphis for 22 years, Wife (Divorcee), and Mother who raised 4 children; Brenda strategically executed her life long passion of working in Entertainment.

No matter the facet; Acting, Modeling, Singing, etc, Brenda deliberately was in execution mode!

Brenda was wise beyond her years. She learned at the early age of 5 about her gifts. Being extremely shy- she would only sing and dance for family. Later, in her middle school- aged years she experienced one of the most frightening moments of her life! Brenda learned that an opening at her school choir would soon be available. But the only way to be considered- she would have to audition in front of several of her peers. Thankfully, Mrs. Annie Barrett allowed her to sing to her (in a private setting). It was of No Surprise- how Brenda would WOW the entire Choir department with her colorful and mature vocals.
This gave Brenda the confidence that would help navigate her throughout her journey. Brenda later began giving private vocal lessons; teaching songs and harmony.

As an adult, Brenda Blooms in her Purpose. Being an example to others; showing them ‚Äúwith Faith in God, hard work and determination, it is Never too late to live out your dreams- No Matter What They Are and How Old You Are‚ÄĚ!

Having Been Led By God w Purpose and Time, Brenda Surrounded Herself with People Who Authentically Understood Her Vision. People Who Epitomizes ‘IronSharpensIron!’ A Live Broadcast, “He Said, She Said”, Chef Competition: Laughter for the Soul (Food), AmicaAnd2Girls (Red Carpet Host), an Annual Fashion Show, “Ageless Beauty” are All Leading House Hold Brands, Brenda Has Come to Love and Attributes the Climax of her Career to her Dear Friend and Business Partner, Media Matriarch and Owner of TLA Agency, Tina Bridges.

Brenda continues to challenge herself, daily. She is proud to be in the position to add value to herself- by studying her craft. Brenda has taken multiple Acting Workshops in Atlanta, GA: Rated ETA, Dugout Studios, Rhavynn Drummer and a Production Assistant workshop at Pinewood Studios. Brenda also attributes sharpening her skills as an entertainer to the many Appearances she has made on TV. She has Served as an Actress (Multiple Seasons) on Fatal Attraction, The Originals, Domestic Seduction, Captain America 3, Wimpy Kid the Long Haul, Spider Man Home Coming, The Last Full Measure and Still Managing to Book Commercial Print Ads (Treasure Bay Casino)/Brand Modeling for Many Notable Photographers and Magazines. Brenda’s also had the opportunity to take great notes along side Veteran Actor, Samuel L Jackson, and Stand-in for Rapper, Producer, Queen Latifah (Miracles From Heaven).

As if Being Mother, Actress, Host, and Full Figured Runway Model isn’t enough; Brenda stretches belief in her dream to become a world renowned Writer. One of her favorite quotes, ‚ÄúI do what I can, while I can, because tomorrow is not promised‚ÄĚ! With each obstacle there is a blessing. Brenda has been the exception to what society deems to be the perfect recipe for success. Instead she has used her shy-ness and many other stones to build her massive catalog. And with a goal to continue to inspire others she also plans to humbly bask in her accomplishments with family and friends.
