Her undeniable delightful, spirited smile and charm captivates those in her presence. She describes herself as a Fun, Fearless and Faithful woman of God. Actress Brely Evans is a young Hollywood talent rising rapidly in notoriety with her feet firmly planted in a faith ever increasing. Brely is emerging as a multi-talented actress, singer/songwriter and passionate motivational speaker whose career is being fueled by her ability to connect with audiences on-stage, on-screen and on a personal level.
With increasing opportunities in film and TV, Brely boldly continues to stand firm in Godly character against the opportunities that might challenge and taint her integrity and faith. “I’ve been blessed with a team that covers me, therefore, a lot of the challenges I would potentially face are checked at the door,” Brely shares. “When I am asked to play a role that does not ‘kingdom build’, I step back and talk to GOD about it. There have been times when the role was way on the other side, but either the character got delivered or the entire story line had a message to get people to see themselves and change. That’s when the greater good is being served and my faith and integrity are left intact!”
Brely will be seen in the upcoming TriStar feature film remake of the 1976 hit movie Sparkle. Brely was cast in the role of “Tune Ann” alongside of an all-star cast: Grammy® nominated recording artist Jordin Sparks (“American Idol” winner, Season 6), the late Multi-Grammy® Award winner Whitney Houston (The Bodyguard, Waiting to Exhale), Derek Luke (Antwone Fisher, Captain America: The First Avenger), Mike Epps (Jumping the Broom, Friday After Next), Carmen Ejogo (I, Alex Cross, Pride and Glory), Tika Sumpter (“The Game”, “Gossip Girl”), Omari Hardwick (The A-Team, For Colored Girls), Grammy® Award winner Cee-Lo Green (“The Voice”), and Tamela Mann (“Meet the Browns”, Diary of Mad Black Woman, Kingdom Come).
Her role in Sparkle came after a daunting year of personal obstacles. “I slowly stopped reading my word and slipped back into my old routines and the offers came to a halt,” tells Brely. “I knew it was because my focus had shifted to the natural in front of me instead of on the supernatural and God’s Word. On Sept 25th of last year, I rededicated myself, connected with prayer partners, began fasting and got serious! About a month later….Sparkle!”
In addition to Sparkle, Brely will soon be seen in the David E. Talbert production of “Suddenly Single”. She has been noted for her roles in the romantic comedy Just Wright featuring Queen Latifah and Common, in Cookout 2 opposite Fazion Love and Charlie Murphy, in BET’s upcoming film “Note To Self”, and merged her vocal talents with her acting abilities in the gospel play “Torn Between The Two”. Brely’s delightful and caring personality grants her the ability to connect with audiences of all types. Out of her own experiences and life dreams stems a passion to deliver a message to all to LIVE YOUR DREAMS. “As a little girl I always spoke about being a Star, a Singer and an Entertainer,” Brely explains. “I was practicing a bible principle and I had NO IDEA – I was speaking it into existence.” She continues, “I saw myself as those things and worked toward the goal without the promise of money or stardom. MY FAITH was the driving factor. I want to inspire and teach others to do the same.”
In between movies, Brely travels and speaks encouraging others to LIVE YOUR DREAMS which focuses on two points: LIVE BY YOUR GIFT: An empowering heart centered talk on getting to know yourself, coupled with an action plan for living your best life based on your gifts and talents; and DREAM BIG: A stimulating session targeted to younger audiences that encourages the new generation to know that theirDREAMS are REAL and ATTAINABLE.
Although Brely has developed a national platform in motivational speaking, her compassion for people and commitment to ministry dwells firm within her local community. Brely is a disciple from Faithful Central Bible Church in Inglewood, CA where Bishop Kenneth C. Ulmer is Senior Pastor. She serves there in the One Voice Choir and in the Drama Ministry. Brely takes pleasure in serving communally byvolunteering every week with My Friends House LA, an organization that feeds thedisplaced on L.A.’s Downtown Skid Row. Brely is also a spokesperson for The Sharon Randolph Foundation which offers programs and support for breast cancer patients.
Brely truly believes Hollywood is an awesome place for Christians. “Hollywood is a WORLD platform,” she states. “We can affect millions of people with just one film and be WORLD CHANGERS!”
