YouTube has helped to launch the music careers of artists like Justin Bieber. And it's a similar story for a Lafayette, Lousiana, college student whose friends posted a video of her singing a worship tune.

In fact, Briana Babineaux, who goes simply by the name Bri, has been called the "Justin Bieber of gospel music." 

Last December, she attended an overnight worship session at a friend's house where she sang Tonex's "Make Me Over." That friend recorded her singing and posted the video online.

The video has garnered more than a million hits. And in a matter of months, Bri was in the recording studio with a music pioneer.

She has a voice you won't soon forget and she recently shared story with Efrem Graham in CBN's Studio Five.
