What’s Gabbie Up To?

Get Gabbie To The Hollywood Bowl 

The Opportunity of A Lifetime

For five decades, the incomparable Ella Fitzgerald filled the Hollywood Bowl with her mesmerizing voice; cementing the fact that Jazz is a genre that never disappoints! As a Jazz vocalist , a songwriter and composer for film & television living and working in the Hollywood of the South, Atlanta, Georgia! — it has been Gabbie McGee’s dream to honor the legendary Ella Fitzgerald in a BIG way and it appears the Audacy’s Opening Act Contest is an incredible opportunity to do just that! 

Benefiting The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention,  for up & coming Jazz artist Gabbie McGee this is an opportunity of a lifetime — YOUR VOTE can help to open the door for Gabbie to be THE opening act for Audacy’s biggest concert event of 2022, LIVE @ The Hollywood Bowl! 

Here’s What Gabbie Had To Say: 

“Being on the other side of the year 2020 is a blessing on its own, but to have the opportunity to visualize my future using my immense love for the Jazz music genre is incredibly encouraging to say the least. 

For the past 15 years, I have worked to establish myself as an artist. As a wife and mother of 3, I was not always able to pour resources solely into the advancement of my career. Making the sacrifice to support my family and not pursue my musical passions caused me to struggle emotionally. My confidence in “putting myself out there” dwindled as I started to approach my 40’s. I started to feel like having a career in music in today's industry was only for musicians in their 20’s. For me, this Opening Act experience is a life changing opportunity to finally get the breakthrough I’ve needed to showcase my God given talents and abilities as a singer, songwriter and over all entertainer. 

With the Coronavirus outbreak changing the way everyone in the world does everything they’ve always done — the need for me to pursue my dreams; to stand on the shoulders of great vocalists like Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan & Nina Simone — that need is NOW and could not be more vital to my forward motion as a creative!”

100 Black Women Honor Gabbie McGee  

What an amazing honor! On April 9, 2022 I received the Unsung Heroine Award for my service to the community through the advancement of the arts. This very prestigious award and star-studded gala is a premier Atlanta event presented annually by The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. — Metropolitan Atlanta Chapter. #BlackExcellence 


For over 15 years, I have worked as a multipotentialite creative; lovingly using my gifts and talents to paint the world around me with vibrant colors through music and service. Whether it’s advocating for the preservation of the Jazz music genre for future generations, performing to raise funds for HBCU scholarships and endowment initiatives, or passionately lending my voice to charitable causes like 'The Fight Against Cancer' to honor the memory of my beloved little sister Ledora, it is my life’s work to use ALL I’ve been given to change the world around me for the better, to the glory of GOD! 

The Metropolitan Atlanta Chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women Inc., conceived the Unsung Heroine Awards Gala in 1997, as an opportunity to recognize African-American women. The awards are presented to women in our community who work tirelessly to empower their community in the vital areas of education, health, politics, civic responsibility, business and entertainment.
