Gabi Wilson: Y'all Pray Atlantic Records Doesn't Get a Hold of Her

Charles, "Mr. Good News" forwarded this clip of Gabi Wilson appearing on the Today Show. She wants to be a writer, producer, musician and a Dentist. I remember those days. I wanted to be an airplane pilot and a lawyer. Dianna Ross and a lawyer. An engineer and a lawyer. That was until I realized that if I stayed in the engineering program I would spend my entire undergraduate career in a basement studying and I'd take five years to finish and although I was good at math and science, I loved the capital markets more. Anyway, here's Gabbi!

May I add that I am most impressed that she can play the piano. Mama tried her best, but the only thing I could manage was a song called Tarantula which I pull out whenever I get near a piano. Three notes and two cords, but you would think I was Liberace with all the drama I bring to it. Slow it down. speed it up. and then fall on the keys as if I am too overwhelmed by my own talent. Fun times. fun times. Can't wait for Christmas so i can do my annual impression of the Rev. Dr. A. Larm Clock, Sr. Pastor of the Bedside Baptist Church. I admire the discipline it takes to play the piano and the muscle memory. Maybe I will try to learn again. Since I'd be the one paying for it instead of the parental unit, maybe I would take it more seriously.

Y'all pray that Gabbi doesn't get a record deal, unless its with Disney. I know it seems counterintuitive, but we all know what a record label is going to try to do with a little Black girl. Throw her in hot pants and have her singing Adina Howard songs. Don't think it could happen? You better ask Keke Palmer.
