Shanelle Gabriel

Shanelle Gabriel has performed her blend of spoken word and soulful singing

both nationally and internationally, from LA to Vancouver to Johannesburg, South

Africa. She featured on the 6th season of HBO's Def Poetry Jam, and was recently

spotlighted on the Rachael Ray Show and recognized for her work by Listerine and

Wal-Mart in the "Your Mouth Matters" campaign. Shanelle competed in both the

National and Individual World Poetry Slam Competitions. She has shared stages

with artists such as Eric Benet, Talib Kweli, Jill Scott, Nas, 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."

In the summer of 2004, Shanelle was diagnosed with SLE Lupus. However, she

decided that her health would not be something that would limit her success.

Using that as her fuel, she decided that she would pursue her dreams and

encourage others who have obstacles in their path to do the same. Shanelle is

facilitates creative writing workshops, is an active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha

Sorority, Inc, and the Patient Services Chair for the Young Leaders Board of the SLE

Lupus Foundation. She is still touring while finishing the follow-up to her amazing

debut album, Start Something (winner of the 2008 Atlantic City Alternative Soul

Best CD Award) set to be released Fall 2012.
