Shanelle Gabriel has been labeled a virtuosa: She's a soulful singer, poet, lyricist, and an advocate for Lupus Awareness. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, she has displayed her skills at colleges and venues both nationally and internationally, hitting cities from LA to Vancouver to Yola, Nigeria. Frequently compared to Lauryn Hill and the super duo Floetry wrapped-in-one, Shanelle effortlessly blends her soulful singing with elements of spoken word and hip-hop. Shanelle's tenacity has allowed her to become a shining star in any path she treads.

Shanelle both opened and featured on the 6th season premier of HBO's Def Poetry Jam along with Jill Scott and DMX. She recorded a nationally televised promo for the 2007 NFL Draft and competed in both the National and Individual World Poetry Slam Competitions. Shanelle has shared stages with artists such as  Eric Benet, Talib Kweli, Nas, Erick Sermon, and more. You can hear her voice as the narrator for Jennifer Hudson's "I Got This" audiobook and also catch her acting in Q-Tip's video for "ManWomanBoogie."
