Born November 12, 1992 in Manila, Philippines and now residing in Arizona since 1999. Gabriel Jedzimir Lee Barcenilla is a Filipino/Chinese/Spanish Pop/R&B/ and Hip-Hop artist. He is also the son of former Filipino Olympic Chess Players Rogelio Padla Barcenilla Jr. and Lilibeth Lee Barcenilla. At a young age Gabriel did not have any musical aspirations because of the lack of confidence and shyness. He didn't recognize his vocal abilities until the age of 14 when he performed at Perry High School's first annual talent show., of which was a confidence booster. With the encouragement from family, friends, and class-mates, Gabriel decided to pursue his dream of becoming a top recording artist.
