Born in West Mifflin, PA, Gabby Barrett started singing when she was just 9 years old. At 14, Blase Barrett, Gabby's father and employee of Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania, encouraged Gabby to join a gospel choir. She has covered artists such as the Beatles, Ariana Grande, Whitney Houston, Adele, and Celine Dion, including Motown artists of the 60’s and 70’s.
Since she began singing, she released a series of singles, both originals and covers. In spite of her young age, she has performed more than 100 shows and helped raise money for a host of regional charities. Gabby also wants her success to include giving back to the community.
She has been able to use her gifts and talents to support nonprofits such as Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, Camp Star (Youth Amputee Camp), and St. Jude Children's Hospital.
One of eight children, Gabby Barrett embraced music from an early age, singing in church choirs, sporting venues, concerts, festivals and opening for music stars Keith Urban, Daya and Toby Keith. She sold out Stage AE, a Pittsburgh concert venue, twice with country artist Cole Swindell and opened for country crooner Toby Keith in Ohio.
She has also been featured on Froggy Radio, Pittsburgh's country variety station, and travels throughout the country doing shows.
In 2017, she organized a "Dreams Really Do Come True" assembly’s tour, visiting area Pittsburgh schools with an anti-bullying message and musical performances. Barrett says she endured bullying at her high school, Serra Catholic in McKeesport, as she pursued her dream of becoming a singer/songwriter.
She then left Serra Catholic to enroll in cyber school, a more accommodating curriculum option for her busy performance schedule.
Along with these performances, she has performed the National Anthem at football and baseball games. Gabby was a regular performer at Light Up Night Pittsburgh where thousands of people came to see her perform.
Gabby says she’s dreamed of being on American Idol since the moment Carrie Underwood won Season 4.
Gabby is now living out her dream on national television and is hoping for some Steel City support in the form of "American Idol" online votes from fans.
