Dreams can true, it seems – with the announcement that pop-r&b icon Gabrielle will serenade the crowds with a live performance at LoveBN1 Fest in Preston Park on Sunday 5th August.
The songstress dominated the charts in the 90s with a string of hits, including ‘Dreams’, ‘Out of Reach’, ‘Sunshine’, ‘Walk on By’ and her classic duet with East 17, ‘If You Ever’.
This roll-call won Gabrielle two BRIT Awards, over 10 million record sales, and bona fide pop goddess status. And there’s still no stopping her. Last year – exactly 20 years after her debut – the glamorous Gabrielle released a new album, containing six new tracks alongside some of her greatest hits. She also proved she can still cut it with today’s pop crowd, with a featured credit on Naughty Boy’s star-studded album ‘Hotel Cabana’.
Citing her influences as Marvin Gaye, Barry White and Lisa Stansfield, Gabrielle looks sure to serve up some cool soul and r&b during her Sunday set – and will hopefully bring a little ‘Sunshine’ with her to boot.
