Meet Gabriel, a 24-year-old from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
“I created my playlist to build an audience, and to connect those people to the music I make.”
What music did you grow up listening to as a young kid?
I grew up listening to "I Will Always Love You" and "I Have Nothing", by Whitney Houston. I grew up in church, I wasn't used to listening to anything outside of church music. When I decided to leave the church, I started to get to know the beautiful work of Madonna, David Bowie, and Mariah Carey. Some other influences include P!nk, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake.
Name one of your favorite albums of all time?
Butterfly by Mariah Carey.
What artist, dead or alive, who would you interview and why?
Amy Winehouse. I'd like to be the friend she needed when she wrote "Rehab". She was a genius, and it's so sad she left us.
What is the best concert you’ve ever been to?
Katy Perry, "The Prismatic Tour", in 2015 during Rock in Rio.
If you were a singer, what current living artist would you like to collaborate with?
To pick one artist is very hard, but I would have to go with Madonna.
