The night that Bridget performed at a historic Reduce Global Warming fundraiser at Rancho Valencia, more than $1 million was raised.
For her unique collection of original songs Where Birds Meet in the Rain, she matched 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), and percussionist Allan Phillips (Patti Labelle) among others. Her music videos challenge contemporary clichés and have been shown in the Payne County Film Festival (TV 33, cable 3), and on Access Central TV (Time Warner). 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.

For years, Bridget had her own weekly musical series at Humphrey’s Backstage Live Music Club where she performed with her band and featured hundreds of local performers including mostly female singer-songwriters. She also had a multi-artist musical series at Caffeinds on Broadway, San Diego. Having performed for years in Paris, Bridget garnered critical acclaim: L'Arc describes her as "a messenger of the new millennium..."
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 Compassion Breast and 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.
