Q&A session with Gabrielle Ferdinands
What can the audience expect from your performance?
I will be performing my favourite songs from the ’50s, and a couple of modern hits. If you're a fan of The Everly Brothers, Elvis Presley and Etta James, you're definitely going to recognise more than a couple of songs! Join me for a rock 'n' roll weekend!
What was your favourite song growing up?
I used to love The Neverending Song of Love by the New Seekers. It was the first song I was able to sing at the age of four.
What are your favourite songs from the ’50s?
I love anything from The Platters, especially Only You, romantic ballads by Elvis, and any doo-wop songs, like Sh-Boom by The Chords. The Everly Brothers’ Devoted to You and a lot of their other hits are up there as well.
