Dee Ghabrial: Interview

 

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Jesus Christ

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I’m an artistic soul trying to find her place in the world.

Why do you do what you do?

Just as food and water are essential to your health and well-being, so is music for me. “Life without music is pointless”

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I’ve always known it’s what I wanted to do. In high school I did my very first performance and I loved the feeling of being in front of a crowd… one thing led to another, started writing my own music when I was 16, played  more shows, gained confidence in myself and my art.. & a few years later here I am now.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

In terms of music… I guess the toughest part is simply not getting discouraged. The music industry has become a business and that’s the most frightening thing. Music should be about heart and soul & not about who has enough money to pay their way to the top. It just makes me wonder where my fate lies as a singer … but all my faith is in God. Whatever path he chooses for me will be the right one… nothing comes easy so I just gotta keep my head up.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

The one person who really pushed me to get out there, he’s my hype man, my best friend, a crazy talented lyricist & rapper…and also holds the key to my little black heart: Max Vezina aka Le Grimaud

 

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

My lack of confidence allowed a lot of people to “walk all over me”… I was young though so I guess it’s part of the growing process. I just had to know my worth and step up my game.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Working on a few more videos, eventually releasing my album and hopefully making it somewhere worthy.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Travel, enjoy the sun, surround yourself with positive energy, if you have haters or enemies kill them with kindness chances are they want to be you sooooo badly.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

I want a pet pig.
