           Born February 9, Brande learned that she could dance naturally, and wasn’t camera shy at the age of four. Brande had been performing her own shows in her backyard, school, and any place that she could. She loved being in front of the camera all of the time. There was never a holiday or moment, for that matter, she let pass by without her dancing, singing, or simply being known. She also took vocal lessons, sung with numerous choirs, and also trained with other singers and vocal groups. She earned a business and majorette scholarship to Texas Southern University by live auditioning. Some of her inspirations are Quincy Jones, Teena Marie, Diana Ross, James Brown, and MC Hammer just to name a few. Business mogul, artist, and fashion designer, Sean Combs is one of her idols that she emulates and strives to be like. She was noted Music Business Student of the Year in Houston, Texas.
