My name is Gabriel de los Santos, I live in Kearny, New Jersey and Iâ€™m in my senior year of high school. My parents are from the Dominican Republic but I was born in Livingston NJ.
I was born weighing just 1 pound when my mother was just 26 weeks pregnant, which I had to spend 3 months in an incubator at the hospital in the NICU .The nurses played music for me so that I would not hear the sound of the machines all day, so I am sure that from that moment my passion for music began. Today I am 18 years old and I have studied in a music conservatory since I was nine years old where I have learned classical music and I also learned how to sing in different languages. I have had the great opportunity to sing in different shows such as the voice kids (Spanish version USA televised on Telemundo), Showtime at the Apollo with Mr. Steve Harvey, I have won the amateur night at the Apollo Theater more than 5 times. I was on Broadway worldâ€™s second season of Next On Stage competition where I was one of the 3 finalists. This year I was also accepted for acapella academy which was founded by the creator of the famous acapella group â€œPentatonixâ€.I was also a participant on Dominicana Got Talent.
For me music is one of the most important things in my life and that is why I want to fight to achieve my dream of become a Great singer. I was given a second chance at life and I know that I was given that opportunity to achieve my dreams and to spread the message to the world that you can do anything no matter the obstacles put in your path!
