Attractions

Gabz

Gabz

Gabz first came to the public's attention when she appeared at The London Palladium. She performing at the auditions of the 7th series of 'Britain's Got Talent' which was aired on ITV on 26 May 2013 - the very last auditionee to be shown. She sang and played her own song 'The One' and after reaching the live finals this song was released on June 30, renamed Lighters (The One), reaching number 6 in the official UK charts. At the age of just 14 Gabz has already achieved one of her dreams -to have written and performed on a top ten single.

Since Britain’s Got Talent, Gabz has been working really hard with her school work and also fitting in appearances on Radio One, ITV Day Break, This Morning, Friday Download, The Olympic Park ‘Go Local Event’ alongside McFly and red carpet premieres of movies as well as numerous personal appearances. Gabz has also had the opportunity to fly in and co-pilot a real stunt plane and interviewed the director and producer of the Disney‘ Planes’ movie.

Gabz released her second single “Lie There”, which she wrote herself, on 3 November 2013.

Gabz has written 40 songs (as of January 2014) and is currently working on her first studio album and about to embark on her first UK Tour as a special guest to Anttix.
