(France), Latitude 22 (Mexico) and was featured in the World Fusion Divas Concert Series in Hollywood as well as in GIRL and Tsunami (ABC). The night that Bridget performed at a historic Reduce Global Warming fundraiser at Rancho Valencia, more than $1 million was raised. Matching her talents with those of producer/engineer David Chenoweth (Jewel, Body Count), engineer Joe Marlett (Blink 182), drummer Paul Kimbarow (Shanana), bassist Dave Curtis (AJ Croce), percussionist Allan Phillips (Patti Labelle) among others, Bridget offers a unique collection of original songs.

She has been a regular TV guest on the Shemm Show (Adelphia, Comcast) and has aired her own Bridget Brigitte TV Special on Cox Cable networks.

Having performed for years in Paris, Bridget has garnered critical acclaim: L'Arc describes her as "a messenger of the new millennium..." The Folk Connection writes that "She combines the energy of Alanis Morrissette with the force of Sheryl Crow, the originality of Paula Cole with the tenderness of Sarah MacLachlan..." She has lent her musical talents to help these organizations among others: The Grammy’s MusiCares, GoGirlsMusic, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Vietnamese American Women Artists, National Breast Cancer Foundation, Artivist Independent Film Collective, and Artists Helping Artists. She is past President of the San Diego Songwriter's Guild, current President of Women's International Center, former Creative Director for 2 Life 18 Foundation (renamed Coalition of Hope) Disaster Relief, and Advisor for the Asian American Repertory Theater. In addition to her work as a musician, Bridget is a poet and writer whose work has been published widely. She holds a Ph.D. in French and Comparative Humanities and lives in San Diego, CA where she makes sustainability advocacy an everyday event.
