Bre-Z, born Calesha Murray on July 22, 1987, is an American actress and rapper who has captured the hearts of many with her exceptional talent and charisma. Best known for her roles as Tamia “Coop” Cooper in the drama series All American and as Freda Gatz in Empire, Bre-Z has risen to fame in the entertainment industry. But her journey to success wasn’t without its challenges. Let’s take a closer look at the life and career of this remarkable artist.
Bre-Z Early Life and Education:
Bre-Z was born in Wilmington, Delaware, where she spent her formative years. As a baby, her grandmother gave her the nickname “Bre-Z” because of her tendency to cry until a window was closed, earning her the playful moniker “breezy.” However, she discovered that Bre-Z wasn’t her real name once she began attending elementary school. Her passion for music blossomed in the sixth grade, and she decided to pursue it wholeheartedly.
After graduating from high school in 2005, Bre-Z attended Full Sail University’s Winter Park campus in Florida to study music. But her connection to the world of hair styling was strong, as her grandpa, father, and mother were all barbers. She started cutting hair at a young age, and even after moving to Atlanta in 2008, she continued honing her hairstyling skills and eventually styled the hair of famous personalities like Akon and Ludacris.
