For being only 17, Smithfield, Virginia native Bria Kelly is extremely accomplished for her age. She discovered her love for performing at the early age of 8 when performing in her elementary school chorus. At age 11, Bria decided to take her talent to the people of Hampton Roads, Virginia, where she started singing the National Anthem before local hockey and baseball games, graduating to a televised Philadelphia Eagles football game and a Baltimore Orioles baseball game, and then singing the National Anthem before performances of country stars such as Taylor Swift and Rascal Flatts. In 2012, Bria competed in NBC's hit show "America's Got Talent." She was extremely well-received, making it into the Top 20 and then, two weeks later, finding herself in Newark, NJ standing on the biggest stage in America where she was named a "Season 7 Semi-finalist." Bria formed a band of hardworking musicians, "The Bria Kelly Band," which is extremely popular in Hampton Roads.
