She captured the judges attention with bright purple sparkle lipstick.

She held their attention with a mature-beyond-her-years version of Adele’s “One and Only.”

“I love the sparkles,” Jennifer Lopez proclaimed, “but only because you can sing like that.”

And Harry Connick Jr. called it crazy that someone so young could sound so good.

Bria Anai attends the DeKalb School of the Arts in Atlanta.

And apparently she does a little acting, too, having appeared in a musical called “Superstar Dreamz” last year.

But music seems to be her main focus.

In addition to a bunch of covers on her YouTube channel, you can head to Soundcloud and listen to two of her originals, “Take Over” and “Be Mine.

In her Road to Hollywood videos, Bria Anai said her musical influences include Christina Aguilera for her amazing range and Whitney Houston for the pureness of her voice.

She thinks her youth will help her appeal to a wide range of viewers and adds “my voice really doesn’t match my age. So it’s like my ‘it’ factor. So I’m hoping my ‘it’ factor will get me the Idol factor.”

Here are links to Bria Anai’s Facebook page and Twitter account @BeautyKillsYou_. The latter promises an official Bria Anai album coming soon.

Now, some Bria Anai music.

“Boyz Talking About”

“Take Over” (the aforementioned original)

“Mamma Knows Best” (Jessie J cover)

“Someone Like You” (Adele cover)
