Gabi Wilson is a singer, songwriter, and motivational speaker who, at the age of 17, reached number 2 on the Billboard classical charts with her album, Venice. Her new album, “The Vermillion Line,” features ten songs that explore the idea of hope and finding peace with the struggle in each of our lives.


We love her for “Focus,” “I Used to Know Her,” and “Hard Place,” but her upcoming album may sound a little bit different. “You never necessarily know what sound you’re going to get,” she told Rolling Stone. With this album, though, we can expect a “more musical” EP following in the footnotes of her predecessors. “People like Quincy Jones and even Rodney Jerkins perfected their mixes and made sure each instrument was doing the right thing. They were looking for that feeling, as opposed to looking for that hit,” she added.In August 2018, she released her fourth EP titled ‘I Used to Know Her: The Prelude’. Released by the label RCA records, the EP sales picked up an immediate pace and it made it to the US Billboard 200 chart where it peaked at the 20th spot. In the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop chart, the EP peaked at the 12th position. By that time, her fan following had grown exponentially. The album further topped the US R&B Chart.

“When H.E.R. was a child, she’d wake up in the morning to her dad making breakfast in the kitchen and blasting the late musician’s concert DVD on the television,” WWD wrote about H.E.R.’s affinity for Prince. And fans celebrate the similarities between H.E.R.’s “Lost Souls” (off I Used to Know H.E.R.) and Lauryn Hill’s “Lost Ones.”Her second compilation album, I Used to Know Her, was nominated for five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Song of the Year for "Hard Place". In 2021, she was awarded the Grammy Award for Song of the Year for "I Can't Breathe", and the Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Fight for You" from the film Judas and the Black Messiah (2021). Her debut full-length album Back of My Mind was released in June 2021. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
