20-year-old English singer Gabrielle Aplin has become a bit of a star, following her cover of the Frankie Goes to Hollywood track The Power of Love. Gabrielle is now preparing for the release of her debut album English Rain and has been talking about how grateful she is to have such loyal fans.
During an interview with Digital Spy, Aplin beamed, "I'm lucky that I get a lot of great comments from very nice people online, so I like to show an interest in what people are saying. I think the people who like me are just very polite! I'm grateful as it's much easier to be nasty online."
Gabrielle also spoke about her upcoming album, adding, "I spent a year and a bit recording it and although we finished it before the deadline, we kept adding new bits to it here and there. I'm really happy with it and I'm glad to have a label with me for my first big release. They've helped me do things I wouldn't be able to do on my own."
Gabrielle Aplin's new single Panic Cord is out next week, while her debut album English Rain releases on May 13. Meanwhile, Gabrielle Aplin supported Ed Sheeran on his 2013 tour of Australia and New Zealand.
