What is Bre-Z’s net worth? Also, who is Bre-Z’s partner?
You know her as Freda Gatz from Empire or “Coop” from All American, but who is she in real life?
What is her story?
Bre-Z is her nickname, but her legal name is Calesha Murray.
Bre-Z was Philadephia, Pennsylvania, born on July 22, 1987, and raised in Wilmington, Delaware, by her mother and father.
Calesha’s grandmother founded the nickname “Breezy” when she was a baby, stating her grandmother said there was an open window making her cold, and she would not stop crying until the window was shut.
Bre-Z graduated high school in 2005 and became Full Sail University of Winter Park, FL Alumni soon after.
Bre-Z is known as a triple threat.
A barber, actress, and rapper.
Growing up in a family of Barbers, cutting hair came naturally to her.
She watched her grandfather and dad all her life, starting the craft herself at the young age of 10.
She moved to Atlanta with her mother in 2008, where her career as a Barber took off, snatching up clientele like Akon, DJ Sense, and Ludacris.
Bre-Z then moved to LA in 2014 at the age of 24; with only one dollar in her bank account, she knew she had to chase her dreams.
In LA, she continued cutting hair, landing her first job at a salon called Jasmine Ashley while pursuing her music and acting career.
Bre-Z used her Barbershop connections to get her foot in the door of an audition for Empire, landing the role as Freda Gatz in 2015.
Freda was only the beginning of her rise to fame.
During her time on the show, she recorded soundtracks several times, including the songs “My Own Thing” and “Shine on Me” with singer Jussie Smollett and “Boom Boom Boom Boom” with American actor Terrence Howard.
Calesha has made appearances on The Real and Celebrity Page.
Also, after her role on Empire, she has landed other acting roles on The New Edition Story in 2017 and staring as Tiana “Coop” Cooper on The CW’s All American in 2018. ”Coop is literally Bre-Z in high school,” Calesha told Refinery29. She added: ”I gave you Bre-Z from class of 2005.”
Bre-Z may love acting and cutting hair, but her real passion was to become a rapper.
She became dedicated to chasing her music career in the sixth grade, always seen performing at impromptu shows rapping as a kid for anyone and everyone who would watch.
Bre-Z started out rapping her brothers’ music when performing until she began writing her own.
Bre-Z’s mother worked in the music industry, and one morning, Bre-Z woke up to Wu-Tang-Clan in her living room.
From that moment, she knew music would be in her life forever.
While growing up, her biggest influencers in the industry were 2Pac, Jay-Z, Missy Elliot, MC Lyte, Jadakiss, and Cam’rom.
Bre-Z met with Freeway of Roc-A-Fella Records rap group State Property at the age of 15 and soon after started collaborating with big names such as The Game, Jennifer Lopez, and Dr Dre.
The soundtracks for Empire were just the tip of the iceberg for her musical career because, in 2018, she released the single “Best of Me” with Lil’ Mo and then released her debut, “The Grl.” featuring RaVaughn and Robbie Celeste later that same year.
