‘R&B Divas: LA’ Returns in February with Two New Divas

Last season of R&B Divas LA was filled with tension. Set your calendars and/or DVRs for Wednesday, Feb. 11, because that’s when Chanté Moore, Lil’ Mo, Michel’le, Chrisette Michele and Leela James will return for a third season of R&B Divas LA!

This season adds two new divas to the cast: meet solo newbie Christina “Brave” Williams and Stacy Francis, actress and finalist/fan favorite on the first season of “The X Factor.”

Christina “Brave” Williams 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” which also included Sevyn Streeter. The group had hits such as “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. Up next, Brave will be gearing up for the release of her upcoming EP, “Fearless” headed by the single “Oooh (Luv Ya).” On the show, audiences will witness Brave pursue her solo career.

Before “The X Factor,” Stacy Francis was a member of the group Ex-Girlfriend. She’s toured the world with several stage plays, musical productions, and has appeared on a variety of television programs including featured roles on, Third Watch, The Parkers, Yes Dear, among others. Musical theater highlights include starring opposite Chaka Khan in the West End production of Mama I Want To Sing, along with roles in Born to Sing, Smokey Joe’s Café, Street Corner Symphony and the hit Broadway show Footloose. Along with launching her very own skin care line, Stacy Francis Beauty, the show will highlight Francis’ journey as she seeks to successfully transition into the new world of R&B.

On season three, expect those same tensions left over from season two as the divas come together to mend their volatile relationships as they attempt to put their charitable side on display as they band together to give back to the community. Also be prepared for multiple performances from the divas this season.

Tune in to TV One on Wednesday, Feb. 11 at 10PM/ET for the Season 3 premiere, and catch an immediate encore at 11PM/ET.
