Bri Ray

Relationship Specialist & Content Strategist

Bri Ray is a Utah native. She grew up as one of six children in a bi-racial home in the heart of Utah County. Her family is a collage of biological, adopted, and added siblings—giving her a deeper perspective into the unique gaps experienced by multicultural families. Bri Ray is a self-starter. While still in high school she began additional education to learn the ropes of marketing, copywriting, public relations, and business operations. She has since led projects & events for companies in various industries including venture capital, education, childcare, health and wellness, entertainment, and more.

At 15, Bri Ray began touring as a motivational speaker teaching kindness, tolerance, and understanding to her peers across the nation. As a musician, Bri Ray’s original music has gained recognition both nationally and internationally, including being named the first ever Presidential Scholar of the Arts in the singer-songwriter discipline. Bri Ray has engaged audiences in renowned venues such as Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center, California’s Dolby Theatre, American Idol, and Utah’s LaVell Edwards Stadium to name a few. Bri Ray continues to write and release music that inspires her in hopes it will do the same for others.

Additionally, as Founder and President of the Raising Me Foundation, Bri Ray is dedicated to dissolving the racial, cultural and educational barriers that keep loving parents from adopting children of color.
Bri Ray and her work have been featured in Utah Valley Magazine’s 40 under 40, Deseret News, Medium’s Black Artists to Watch, Utah Valley Magazine’s Fab 40,, KRCL Radio, The Salt Lake Tribune, and Utah Business Magazine’s Living Color and 30 Women to Watch.
