*“R&B Divas LA” returns for its third season on Feb. 11, with new cast members Stacy Francis and Christina “Brave’ Williams joining returning regulars Chanté Moore, Lil’ Mo, Michel’le, Chrisette Michele and Leela James.
Francis, a former finalist on “The X Factor,” is perhaps best known for getting into an altercation with Whitney Houston over Ray J just days before her death. She also, according to the Daily Mail, confirmed that the father of her second child is “Preachers of L.A.” star and mega-church leader Bishop Noel Jones.
On “Divas,” cameras will follow Francis as she seeks to transition from theatre to R&B. Brave, a lead singer on the MTV reality show, “Making The Band,” will be seen trying to overcome the obstacles associated with being a new artist.
Additionally, the Divas put their charitable side on display as they band together to give back to the community. Viewers will also be treated to multiple performances this season.
Per TV One:
Christina “Brave” Williams embraced her musical talents at an early age when she was cast as a lead singer for the MTV reality show, Making The Band. Brave went on to establish her own all-girl group named “Richgirl.” After signing a major deal with Jive Records, “Richgirl” created billboard hits “24’s” and “He Ain’t Wit Me Now.” In 2009, Brave and the group toured as the opening act for Beyoncé’s “I am Sasha Fierce” tour and landed national performances as the main acts. After the group’s separation, Brave began working on her solo project, including penning her own songs and spearheading the treatments for her videos. She has secured roles in both TV and film, including the lead role in Omarion’s M.I.A. music video, took on the role of Bambi on BET’s The Get Up, and a featured singer in TLC’s Crazy Sexy Cool film on VH1.
