About Gabriela Gunčíková:
Gabriela Gunčíková was born on 27 June 1993 in Kroměříž, Czech Republic. She was a finalist in the second season of SuperStar and won the “New Artist” award at the 2011 Český Slavík awards.
She made two albums and played over a hundred concerts around the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In 2013 she has decided to improve her singing so she contacted one of the most famous coaches in the world, Ken Tamplin, and went to study singing in California. Gabriela has become the face of Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy, as one of the best students with a voice at the global level.
The result of their cooperation has been found by Paul O’Neill from the American band Trans-Siberian Orchestra – and that is how Gabriela has become one of the singes of this band. She performed with them on two tours and about 120 shows around the USA.
Now she decided to go in the direction of her solo career.
