R&B singer Brandy engaged to music executive

LOS ANGELES, Dec 27 (Reuters) - R&B singer and actress

Brandy Norwood is engaged to music executive Ryan Press, a

spokeswoman for the singer said on Thursday.

This will be the first marriage for the singer, who goes by

the moniker Brandy. Press is an executive with music publisher

Warner/Chappell Music. A date for the wedding has not been

announced publicly.

Norwood, 33, has a 10-year-old daughter with her former

boyfriend, music producer Robert Smith.

Norwood has starred in numerous television and films since

the 1990s and is best known as the lead character in the popular

television series "Moesha" from 1996-2001 on the now-defunct

channel UPN.

She also scored a hit song in 1998 with "The Boy is Mine," a

collaboration with the singer Monica, which garnered the pair a

Grammy award. Brandy released her sixth studio album "Two

Eleven" in October this year.
