Tonight (Friday, February 9), Gabrielle will be appearing on The Graham Norton Show, where she will also be releasing new music dedicated to the year 2024. The singer, who became famous in the 1990s, will give a performance on the BBC talk show of the song “A Place in Your Heart,” which is drawn from the next album of the same name, which is scheduled to be released on May 10.
Fans may recognize her silky voice from her legendary song Dreams, which shot to the top of the charts in 1993. Her birth name is Louise Gabrielle Bobb, and she was born in the United States. When it was released, it was the first debut single to ever achieve the highest new entry.
Gabrielle made her return to the public eye with the release of Rise in the year 2000, which went on to become her second number one single in the United Kingdom.
Additionally, the album was able to achieve the top spot on the UK Singles Chart, while the single “Out of Reach,” which was used on the soundtrack of the film Bridget Jones’s Diary, was able to reach the fourth spot.
It is also possible that younger viewers would recognize her from her time spent on the ITV reality show The Masked Singer.
In this show, celebrities are required to dress up in costumes, and a panel of judges attempts to determine who they are solely based on their voice. Gabrielle competed in the second season of the show in 2021, during which she revealed her identity as Harlequin and finished in fourth place.
In addition, the mother of two, who is 54 years old, was seen in the music video for Mel Made Me Do It, which was created by Stormzy.
Why does Gabrielle usually cover one eye?
One thing that viewers might note is that Gabrielle always has her right eye covered, whether it be with a hat, a pair of sunglasses, an eyepatch, or even her hair. A health ailment has caused the celebrity to cover one of her eyes.
She was given a diagnosis of ptosis when she was a child. The National Health Service (NHS) defines ptosis as a droopy upper eyelid. When the problem is more severe, the lid margin can cover a portion of the pupil and block the top portion of the vision. However, there are situations when the problem is quite minor and primarily cosmetic in nature.
Gabrielle underwent surgery to treat the problem; however, the procedure resulted in a reduction in the length of her eyelid. During her stay at school, Gabrielle struggled with depression and showed suicidal thoughts on occasion.
For the first time in 2018, she disclosed that she would never allow anyone other than her closest friends to view her eye. “The idea of going out and showing my eye is much like going out without my knickers on,” she said at the time in an interview with The Guardian. Simply said, it would not take place.
