The Holiday season is a time for joyful giving! Everyone here on Team Gabbie McGee loves celebrating Christmas and giving to those in need! Imagine the excitement we felt when we discovered the dynamic Maria Howell extended an invitation for Gabbie McGee to be a special guest performer during her annual charity event benefiting 'Students Without Mothers' !
Students Without Mothers helps to encourage and support high school seniors who have tragically lost their mothers. This extraordinary organization helps these students to honor the memories of their mothers through academic advancement and achievement!

Gabbie Gives Back
Gabbie talks about giving to charities that support cancer patients:
Because of the many years my family spent supporting my sister in her fight with cancer, I am always honored and eager to use my voice to support charities that help families who have a child or children living with cancer.
Every year, I look forward to performing at the Ambassadors Breakfast sponsored by the Hard Rock Cafe benefiting children currently receiving care at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
Gabbie's Going to Be in Bessie!
Last summer, Gabbie's admiration for the singing sensations of the 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's landed her a cameo appearance in the HBO feature film "Bessie"!
Written and directed by Dee Rees, "Bessie" follows the life and times of legendary "Empress of Blues," Bessie Smith (played by Queen Latifah)."Bessie" also stars Mo'Nique, Khandi Alexander, Charles S. Dutton, Mike Epps and Tika Sumpter, promising high drama, great period costumes, even greater music and greatest-of-all performances.
Now that this extraordinary film is scheduled to premiere on May 16th, Team Gabbie McGee is proud to share these exciting photos from Gabbie's summer on set! What an excellent environment for Gabbie to gather inspiration for her forth coming album "The Return of Yesterday"!
