Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter and inspirational speaker Briana Domenica is excited to announce the release of her new single, “Defender.” The highly encouraging and upbeat tune, written to uplift and strengthen anyone who has walked in the darkness of despair, was featured on Radio SoBro’s NuMu Friday upon release and is now available on all digital and streaming platforms. Listen here.
“Defender” delivers an extremely poignant message of promise and hope. With its lively and feel-good vibe, the song reminds listeners that, although we may face struggles that we cannot seem to overcome, we are not alone, and no challenge is too big for God and we can trust in Him to see us through these times. Domenica added, “This song has recently taken on a much deeper meaning for me. It has become a reminder that no matter the circumstances or battles I am facing, God is my Defender. My hope is that when others hear this song, they are reminded of the same thing.”
Co-written with Rachel Barrentine and Gene Ezell, “Defender” was produced by Grammy award-winning musician Nate Cornell (For King and Country) at his studio just outside Nashville. Cornell adds, “‘Defender’ is a no-holds-barred song with a straightforward and uplifting message. It reminds us that we have a Defender who is watching over us. The production showcases how fearless Briana is with her music. Her heart for reaching people makes Briana the perfect driver of this sonic roller-coaster.”
“No power of darkness
No depth of despair,
No wave of depression
No anger or fear,
Can stand against Your faithful heart,
You protect me right from the start,
All because You love me…
You are my defender, I know it,
You are watching over, watching over this,
You are my stronghold, I’m in Your grip,
You are my anchor, You won’t let me drift,
You are my defender, defender…”
Domenica is in the process of filming the corresponding music video that will be released in the coming weeks. She will also be performing “Defender” at Jesus In A Bar at Cabana Taps (1910 Belcourt Ave. Nashville, TN, 37212), Monday, 2/21 at 6 PM CST.
Music is one of Domenica’s greatest passions, but she is also deeply passionate about suicide prevention and awareness after losing several loved ones to suicide, including her oldest brother. She has also personally struggled with suicidal thoughts. In an attempt to turn family heartache and tragedy into something good, she started a 501c3 (Angel in the Sky) in May of 2016. “My hope is that, through ‘The Warrior In Me,’ outreach program, we can raise awareness and help save lives through prevention, education, and the power of music,” Domenica commented.

Domenica is preparing to take her “The Warrior In Me” program on the road, both live and virtually. Recently, she completed filming a video series on suicide prevention and awareness which she created based on real-life experiences and raw emotion. She will be releasing it in the coming weeks via her YouTube channel as a means to help others who share the same struggles.
Briana Domenica has a positive and encouraging message to share with all ages and wants to utilize the power of her music and her story to make a difference in the lives of others.
