A CHANCE meeting with 90s pop singer Gabrielle has earned one Kingdom Choir singer a spot on her tour.
Sharlene-Monique is set to reach a whole new audience when she goes performs as the support act for Gabrielle later this year – and it’s all down to bumping into the star in a petrol station.
The artist, whose full name is Sharlene Monique Morris, said: “I did a show last year, where I co-headlined with Stephanie Sounds and Phebee Edwards. Gabrielle was there. After the show she looked me up on Instagram and expressed that she really enjoyed my music, my songs, my set and performance and that she wanted to buy my CD.
“Fast forward a couple of months, I bumped into Gabrielle at a petrol station and we got talking. She shared she had a tour coming up and I just asked do you have a support act. She said no, ‘you should contact the manager’. I contacted the manager, and the rest is history. I can’t wait.”
Sharlene-Monique’s courage to ask the singer about her support act plans paid off. She will open up for the award-winning Gabrielle when she performs in venues across the UK.
Gabrielle, whose had several top 10 hits, including Dreams, her debut single which reached the number one spot when released in 1993, will start her Rise Again tour in November at the Bournemouth Pavilion.
The tour celebrates the 20 year anniversary of her Number 1 album Rise.
Sharlene-Monique, who released her single Stay on February 28, will share her sophomore EP, Perspective, with the world in April.
