I saw her as a support act for Leona Lewis on the Labyrinth tour and wasn't impressed. I'm not surprised she's never really made a name for herself, to be frank. There was just nothing interesting about her.

Sweet About Me was such a massive hit, I don't think she'll get one like that again, but it's a great song!

Woman On A Mission was terrible and despite being full of Illuminati imagery, it apparently failed to do well.

I liked a couple of her songs but she strikes me as being too bland to be memorable.

I think the main problem with her is that anybody could sing her songs. She just lacks anything that stands out.

Sweet About Me was a great song and a massive hit in most countries. It's still played on radio, is ridiculously catchy and is very different.

What went wrong for poor Gabriella though was the poor Follow up singles. Save The Lies & I Don't Want To Go To Bed Now were released as the follow up's in selected countries and made little impact because truth be told, they just did not compare to Sweet About Me. Her cover of Warm This Winter always makes an appearance in the iTunes top 100 since it's release, during the festive periods, so at least she isn't a 'one hit wonder'.

Saying that, Sweet About Me will easily keep her in good money for the rest of her life though when you consider that she actually co-wrote and co-produced the track.

She's very talented, I think her second album was marvellous and her first was fantastic, can't wait for new material!

I also saw her on that tour and completely disagree. She's a superb singer with quite a unique voice. I got into her second album after seeing her and think it's a very good album.

Some of the songs are catchy, like Hearts Don't Lie, but maybe she was having an "off" night when I saw her or just didn't do it for me for whatever reason. I wish her well, don't get me wrong, but I don't think she'll ever be a household name.

This is easily my fave Gabriella song, although On a Mission was also quite catchy. Sweet About Me was clever as part of the chorus reminded me of someone who let me down badly, but I was impressed to find out Gabriella wrote it when she was just 15.

I saw her live supporting Leona and she is fantastic live. I liked her debut but the follow up just sounded badly produced

Would like to see her make a comeback with a third album.
