Biography

Bria Valente, is an American popular music singer. A protégée of Prince, Valente released her album, Elixer, as part of a three-cd set with Prince`s Lotusflow3r and MPLSOUND on 29 March 2009. The album debuted strong at #2 on the Billboard charts.

Access Hollywood review of Elixer:
“Valente’s “Elixer” — is just that, a very sweet blend of sultriness. This young lady has a voice that matches her beauty, and it’s about as smooth as hot chocolate sauce pouring out over two scoops of ice cream. She is quite dynamic with her vocals, range and the musical accompaniment is right on. “

Previous projects include;

Background vocalist on the song Mr. Goodnight from Prince`s Planet Earth album.

Duet with Prince on “The Song of the Heart” for Happy Feet movie soundtrack. It is also the only song on the soundtrack specifically written for this film. “The Song of the Heart” is the first single released from the soundtrack and it won the 2007 Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.

Dancer and background vocals for Ushers 8701 album.

Born and raised in Minneapolis, MN. Her ethnic background is Bolivian.

Valente has been Prince’s girlfriend since 2007. As of 2011, they were still in a relationship. Valente has also become one of Jehovah’s Witnesses since they’ve been together.

    schrikk, it's fairly clear she wants to mould her into the perfect woman for himself, but sadly the album didn't do it so he dumped her.

    People are comparing the album way too much to others. If you dont like sweet soul then need not to listen.

    This girl is like," blows the mind" fine and she got real vocal skills. Not typical prince protoge. Production is smooth and her voice is sexy and soft like a pillow you wanna lay on . You gotta listen all the way through, its tight! Dead serious.
