Debut Single: 'Make A Wish'
[Buy it on iTunes]

Why We Love Her: This singer-songwriter's debut single was inspired by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a cause to which she dedicates much of her time. Bryna's younger brother was in a six-month coma following a brain aneurysm, so her frequent trips to the hospital showed her the joy that Make-A-Wish brings to critically ill children. Bryna's own wishes have come true with the release of her debut album, 'Trying to Be Me.'
