Recently, she performed in Bespoke Musicals, at the York Theater, off-broadway in New York City. Not only does she have an extensive background in musical theater, but also in Pop, R&B, Jazz and soul music.

Nonetheless, she always made time for benefit concert performances for the Leukemia-Lymphoma Society, the Diabetes Telethons and Walkathons, the Shriners Hospital of Philadelphia, Lankenau Hospital as well as local benefit fundraisers for those in need. Gabrielle has also expanded her musical prowess both on the piano and guitar, writing her own songs and co-producing her originals with Kit Worton, at Right Touch Studios in Northfield, New Jersey and Tony Kauffman with KBM Productions in Philadelphia. Gabrielle has also achieved movie credits, as Cheryl Robinson, in "Jack Ketchum's The Girl Next Door", a thriller adaptation of a true-story about child abuse, set in 1958 and the role of Savannah, a member of a rock band, in the film "Mysterious", set on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas where she sang one of her original songs, "Summertime Crush", featured in the film. Gabrielle is thrilled to be teaching the young generation to share all of her knowledge that she has acquired over the years of training and performing! She hopes to see all of you in her studio!
