AprilFoolChild began her musical journey at a very young age. Time spent with her godmothers Natalie Cole and Phyllis Hayman inspired her to develop her musical talent and innate ability. The piano, the flute, and even percussion - all became cornerstones of her multi-instrumentalist foundation. As Brielle’s musicality developed, she traveled the east coast, performing in choir concerts & competitive singing.
One of the most crucial components of many musicians development lies within their parents record collection. Luckily for Brielle, early exposure to legendary artists such as Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson and Harry Belefonte helped set her foundation. Sade, Erykah Badu, and Amy Winehouse helped solidify that foundation, and laid the framework of what would become AprilFoolChild - a one woman, musical experience of Alternative Pop, World Music, and Soul.
Fast forward to 2014 - AprilFoolChild performed a live set on Philly’s WXPN radio, followed up by a summer performance as the opening act for Hip-Hop legend Rakim. In 2015 she sang background vocals and played flute in Dice Raw’s of the ROOTS Hip-Hop Musical ' The Last Jimmy'. After a ground breaking year of performances, the songstress released her first solo single ' Mangos'. The record achieved great sucesses reaching 150K plays in just under a year. 2016, the magic only continued to roll in as the songstress opened up for Grammy Award Winning Singer Anna Wise.
