Career of Bryana Salaz

She was more interested in playing soccer as a child than singing or other forms of entertainment. Her mother enrolled her in a singing competition for Army kids when she was 12 years old in Hawaii, where her father was then stationed. Due to her passion for sports, she initially had little interest in taking part in the competition but eventually accepted.

She claims that although she was initially hesitant to take part in the singing competition, once she took the stage, she realized how much she loved performing in front of an audience as well as singing. Following that contest, she gave requested performances at other locations across Hawaii. She gave performances at Don Ho’s Island Grill and an MLK celebration in Kapiolani Park. She also performed the US national anthem in front of 10,000 people at a D.A.R.E. program event. She began developing her singing voice under the guidance of Yvonne Iversen, one of Hawaii’s top vocal coaches.

She began competing in singing contests, and in 2010 she won the “Lolani Talent Competition.” She started appearing in musical plays as well. She appeared in the Fort Shafter Richardson Theatre’s “High School Musical 2” auditions. Although the musical play’s director was thrilled by her talent, she was too young for any of the available roles. Because of this, the director gave her a brand-new part in the play as “Jr. Sharpettes.” She then appeared in a number of musical plays.

Her family relocated to Atlanta, Georgia, where she continued to perform in theater shows and compete in singing competitions. She took part in the ‘America’s Got Talent’ TV show tryouts in 2011. She was chosen and moved on to the Rounds in Las Vegas.

She joined the J. Pervis Talent Agency in Atlanta. She also began submitting applications for acting gigs. She was cast in the movie “Joyful Noise” as a member of a kids choir. ‘Tyler Perry’s House of Payne’, a television sitcom, cast her in a guest role as well.

Her family was stationed in San Antonio, Texas, from 2012 to 2014. She registered with the Dallas agency “Kim Dawson” and the Los Angeles agency “Osbrink” during this time in order to secure parts in television and motion picture ads. Her most notable commercial performances were for the ‘Just Dance 4’ video game with a musical soundtrack, ‘Capri Sun,’ and the ‘Bop It’ family of audio games by US toy firm Hasbro. She also performed at the marine theme park “SeaWorld San Antonio.” She was one of the SeaWorld San Antonio’s youngest Level 1 performers ever hired.

She submitted her application to the seventh season of the NBC television network’s singing talent competition series “The Voice,” one of the top singing talent shows in the US, in September 2014. In the blind audition round, she sang Ariana Grande’s song “Problem,” and three of the four mentors turned to face her. Only Pharrell Williams did not turn, and he later explained his decision by saying that even though he genuinely liked her performance, he believed the other mentors, especially Gwen Stefani, would exploit her voice much better than he would. She choose Gwen Stefani to be her mentor in the program.

All four mentors and judges for the competition—Gwen Stefani, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Pharrell Williams—said she was among the top competitors. She performed “Boom Clap” by Charlie XCX in the subsequent round, the “Battle Round,” and went on to the “Knockout Rounds.” She sang Demi Lovato’s song “Heart Attack” in the knockout round to move on to the live playoffs. Her mentor, Gwen Stefani, was optimistic she would make it through to the “Top 12” round of the competition after the judges liked all of her performances. However, she was ousted in the “Live Playoffs” round, which was hailed as one of the most dramatic and shocking eliminations of the show’s seventh season.

Her father was transferred and her family relocated to St. Louis, Missouri, when she was on “The Voice.” She hired Michael Scott as her new manager after leaving “The Voice.” She claims that she received instruction from her new manager on how to perform with a band.

She would be joining the female group Sweet Suspense, which was founded by former competitors of the singing competition show “The X Factor USA,” which was announced on June 11th, 2015. She quit the band in September 2015, before the album’s first single, “Money,” could be released as planned. She made an appearance in the pilot episode of the envisioned television series based on the 1980 movie “Urban Cowboy” that same year. The series was intended for “20th Century Fox,” however Fox rejected it in December 2015, and the pilot hasn’t found a buyer as of yet.

As Princess Daisy, she joined the cast of the second season of the Disney Channel series “Best Friends Forever” in 2016. In the same year, she also had an appearance in an episode of the Disney Channel series “Bizaardvark.” She was also going to start a new band named “SNRG” with Celine Polenghi and Summer Reign from “Sweet Suspense,” however in May 2016, it was revealed that she had departed the group.
