Brianna Collichio is an 11 year old girl from a town just outside of Rochester,N.Y.
She has been singing, and inspiring crowds publicly, since age 6. Part of the inspiration is derived from the fact that she was born with a disease that affects many areas of the body,but especially the lungs- Cystic Fibrosis. What goes along with the inspiration of her singing through this disease, is the fact that she has a strong, mature voice and her courage is nothing short of miraculous. She has sung before 10's of thousands of people,FEARLESSLY,with very little coughing or none at all.
Her family believes that she has a God given gift and that prayer has sustained Brianna down her very difficult journey, and throughout all of her performances.He has a special plan for her life with her voice, and that plan is being executed.
