Brigette McWilliams (born in Chicago, Illinois) is a female R&B singer. Her mom is singer Paulette McWilliams, who fronted Chaka Khan's band, Rufus (before Chaka Khan joined). After she quit, Chaka Khan took her place.
In 1994, Brigette released her debut album, "Take Advantage of Me" which didn't chart at all on the Billboard 200 chart.
Brigette's first appearance on the Billboard charts was with her first single, "I Get the Job Done" which peaked at #96 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart in August of 1994, staying on the chart for 3 weeks. Despite her talent, critics accused Brigette of attempting to force a soul voice into an R&B format.

After releasing her debut album, Brigette was asked to appear as part of Black Women United (which also included female R&B artists such as Mary J. Blige, En Vogue, Zhane, Me'shell Ndegéocello, and Salt-N-Pepa) on the song, "Freedom" which was featured on the 1995 "Panther" movie soundtrack.
In 1997, Brigette released her sophomore album, "Too Much Woman" which also didn't peak on the Billboard 200 chart. She enlisted soul musicians such as Billy Preston, former Rufus guitarist Bobby Watson, percussionist Paulinho De Costa, and Earth, Wind, & Fire members Al McKay (guitarist) and Larry Dunn (keyboardist).
Brigette charted on Billboard's R&B charts with the single, "Fire" which peaked at #66 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart in June of 1997, staying on the chart for 10 weeks, making it her highest chart appearance to date. Soon after, Brigette was dropped from Virgin Records' roster.
In 2005, Brigette released her third album, "Starlite Lounge" on Expansion Records in the UK. She is now the wife of director Mark Romanek and since 2005, she's also a designer of upscale bags and purses called B. Romanek.
