Bri was born in Ft. Walton Beach, FL on January 25, 1997, and was the daughter of William E. Smith and Colleen M. (Auer) Smith. In her younger years, she was active in Girl Scouts and was a member of the Children’s Community Theater in Florida. Given Bri’s love of music, she had aspirations of becoming a singer herself.
