Quad Cities August 2016 Musician of the Month: Gabriella "GG" Gilbert
By West Music Company
8/2/2016 8:00:00 AM
Gabriella "GG" Gilbert has been taking piano lessons with Deb Story for six years. She started with piano and soon switched to vocal. It was definitely her calling. Since then, she has done everything from learning the correct pronunciation of latin, to singing Disney to Gwen Stefani to country music. Right now, she is working on becoming a tribal law lawyer. She is in her sophomore year at Scott Community College.

This winter, Gabriella is auditioning for The Voice. She advises all musicians to work really hard. When it gets complicated, keep going. But more importantly, to look past your ego. She says that yes, she is really talented, but there is always more to learn and it's very important to be able to admit that to yourself and to others. 

"GG Has a great work and practice ethic.  She's always ready.  Her range is amazing.  She dedicates herself to music 110% all the time."

Congratulations, Gabriella!
