Gabriella Laberge Showed Off Her Violin Skills On ‘The Voice France’
Gabriella’s audition started with the elegant sounds of her violin and the coaches were already hooked. Once they heard her angelic and soft voice they knew immediately that they had to turn their chairs. Florent Pagny, Zazie, Mika and Garou all turned their chairs which took Gabriella by surprise. Ultimately, she ended up choosing to be on Team Mika after this four-chair turn.
During the Battle Rounds, she went head to head against Ilowna Basselier singing “Castle in the Snow” by The Avener. It was not an easy decision for Coach Mika to choose which artist to keep around. Gabriella ended up winning the battle and gaining a huge fn base after doing so.
She also took on another alternative hip hop song when she performed “Stressed Out” by 21 Pilots during the Live Shows. She put her own spin on the parts of the song featuring raps which was something new and exciting that she brought to the show.
