Brittany Chrishawn Williams, better known as Brittany Chrishawn was born on August 28, 1990, in Clay County, Florida and raised in Duval County, Florida. She grew up in a family of 5 daughters with a Jamaican father who constantly fought deportation. Her mother recognized her talents early on and put her in acting, modeling, and vocal classes at a young age.

In 2006, Brittany was selected to perform an original song at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. And by 2007 she’d been invited to join Deborah McDuffie’s JMAC (Jacksonville Mass Choir) where she engaged in live performances at places like The Ritz Theatre, The Apollo Theater, and The Ritz-Carlton of Amelia Island.
Upon graduating from the University of Central Florida in 2012, Chrishawn relocated to NYC and then Los Angeles, CA where she initiated her acting career.
