Winning a BET Award for Favorite Group could be considered a career high for most any R&B singer, and Houston-born crooner Brian Angel (aka Brian Andrews) is no exception. When Day26 garnered the award in 2009, Angel and his band mates were riding high on a chart-topping album debut, critical praise and major television exposure on Sean "Diddy" Combs' smash MTV show, Making the Band.Fast forward a few years and a second hit album later, Day26 agreed to disband in 2012 to take on solo endeavors. Although the group has recently made plans to reunite for a 30 city tour, Brian Angel is well prepared for his future. Brian recently released his new singles "Mrs Parker" & "Hunnid Dollar Bill (Featuring Fat Pimp)" online on Thursday, September 18th 2014 from his debut release entitled "Day Break".
