THIS IS MY STORY
The Youngest of 6 , the only girl and former track athlete, Gabrielle found her love for singing and acting at the young age of 2. Home-schooled by her Mother, Gabrielle had a lot of time to commit to her love for performing. She joined the Chicago Children's Choir at a very young age,where she had the opportunity to work with Conductor Josephine Lee very closely. Gabrielle continued performing through high school while also balancing the busy schedule of a full time athlete and student. Because of her hard work, she was able to obtain a full academic scholarship to the University of West Georgia, where she graduated with a BA in English and Theatre with a concentration in acting and African Studies. During her time there, she appeared as Ti Moune in Once on this Island and also The Emcee in Cabaret, for which she received an Irene Ryan Award nomination, as well as many other productions.
After graduation, Gabrielle worked at several theme parks and was offered a full time Equity contract at Walt Disney World- appearing in multiple high profile shows and special events, including Holidays Around the World and the Joyful Gospel Choir.
After honing her craft in Georgia,Tennessee, and Florida , Gabrielle made the move to New York City, a place she now considers to be her home.
Within her first few months in NYC, Gabrielle booked an Off Broadway cast recording for the show Generation Me and also became a Singing server at the world renown restaurant Ellen's Stardust Diner.
Most recently, Gabrielle has been taking classes at the Growing Studio, studying under people such as Jay Binder, Merri Sugarman, Michael Cassara, Peter Van Dam and Patrick Goodwin. She also continues to study the Meisner technique under Matthew Corozine at MCS Studios.
Gabrielle is happy to announce that after living in NYC for a little less than a year now, she has made her Broadway debut in Beautiful the Carole King Musical as a Shirelle and also the character Little Eva, where she leads her fellow ensemble members in the Locomotion.
You can also see Gabrielle in the Emmy Award Winning Television Series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2 Episode 10.
We are excited to see what Gabrielle does next.
