Music Artist Spotlight- Gianna IsabellaWhat does winning the ‘New York Dream Night Talent Search’ competition mean to you?

It means the world to me. It is so surreal that I had the chance to just perform in front of all of those amazing people, but to win the chance to get recognized means everything in the world to me.

What inspired you to become a musician? 

What inspired me to become a musician was my mother and grandpa. I grew up in a really musically inclined family, so being around all of the music and shows I just saw how much fun my mom was having on stage and one day I just asked her to begin giving me voice lessons and she’s been motivating me since then.

What surprises have you encountered in pursuing your music career?

Some surprises I’ve encountered within the music business is that I actually made it to the top 40 girls on xfactor and also I’ve had the privilege to record in the studio more than most kids my age, so I am very grateful for that.

What has been your biggest challenge to date?

My biggest challenge would have to be trying to have a normal teenage life and going to high school, getting home from the recording studio at 2 am most of the time, and hanging out with friends on a normal Friday night when I have a show or having to do my homework on the road and studying to be able to keep up my grade average.

What’s your process for writing lyrics and where do you get the inspiration for your songs?

At the moment I am just getting into writing songs with the help of my mom. She has been a song writer for Sony publishing for many years and is continuing to encourage me to start writing.

Tell us about your most memorable performances.

My most memorable performances have to be when I was at the Cola Coliseum for xfactor and when my mom sometimes surprisingly brings me on stage to sing with her.

Have you shared the stage with anyone we would know?

No, I have not shared the stage with any musicians you may know. I am just beginning to branch out into the music industry, putting myself out there for the world to see.

Anything else you want to share?

Another thing I would like to mention is just that singing has been my dream for as long as I could remember and even if I don’t make it in the music industry, I will never lose hope of my dream!
