Bri Babineaux Music, Tyscot Records and Integrity Music celebrate the return of Gospel music’s “Praise and Worship Princess” Briana “Bri” Babineaux with the release of her sophomore album, The Encounter – after a three-year hiatus. The Encounter is available now at all major digital retail and streaming outlets.
The Encounter’s, core-theme is centered around a 1:1 relationship with God. Recorded live at Living the Word International Church in New Orleans, LA, the album captures the beauty and power of unrestrained and organic worship. The Encounter features special guests Todd Dulaney, Pslamist Raine, Dante Bowe and features covers of popular worship songs like “Oceans,” and “Build My Life.”
“The Encounter is like my baby. I was able to have all hands and feet in the creative process. This album is a combination of my penmanship, what I found out was my sound, all combined with what God told me was a work for the body of Christ. Given everything that’s going on now, I know that people are going to be extremely blessed by it,” says Babineaux.
The newlywed’s (now Briana Fontenot) current single, “Baptize Us Again” is sitting in the top 30 on the Billboard Gospel Charts. “Baptize Us Again” is sure to usher believers into the heavenly atmosphere at first listen. Written by Timothy Reddick, Alton Buggs II and Kierre Bjorn Lindsay the song serves as a reminder that healing happens when you ask God to fill you up again and take you back to the place you first fell in love with Christ. The mid-tempo song has a refreshing sound that uplifts the listener in every way.
The social media singing sensation carries an impressive digital footprint with a combined total of over 1M followers across all her platforms. Currently Bri serves as the Assistant Worship Director alongside Pastor Tim Bowman Jr. at Spirit of Faith Christian Center in Maryland under the leadership of Apostle Mike and Dr. DeeDee Freeman.
The Encounter is available now wherever music is sold digitally and streamed.
