This artist from Guayaquil has a height of 1.68. Apart from having an exceptional body figure, she also has an extraordinary inner beauty of which many who know her closely will not let me lie. She is a true example and encouragement for many women of his generation. In the middle of 2020, she became the mother of a beautiful boy who named him Chris Alexander who has become her loyal and perpetual inspiration for both her and her family.

His most recent music releasehim:
Within the framework of “International Women’s Day”, this past March 8, the renowned Ecuadorian singer Gabriela Franco made the international launch of her most recent musical theme entitled; MY REFLECTIONtheme originally performed by the talented and famous singer Christina Aguilera For the movie MULAN I from Disney. This version of Gabriela is available on all digital platforms such as Spotify, Google Play, Deezar, and more, as well as her video on her official YouTube channel:
His representative, Dr. Pilar Career who remains in constant contact with me, gives us interesting details about this song ‘Mi Reflejo’: “This theme refers to the look with which the world analyzes women in society and aims to awaken in her that she does not feel intimidated or ashamed if she cannot be who others expect her to be. In the Disney movie, we know a reflection of the father of Mulan, the protagonist, who says: ‘That flower that grows in adversity will be the most beautiful of all’, “.
The Interpreter emphasizes: “Every woman should feel free to be whoever she wants to be, to dream, to imagine, to break with established patterns. The woman does not necessarily have to have a man by her side, to save her in dangerous situations, or cover her needs. It is nice when a woman finds the ideal partner, or manages to fulfill herself in what, in the eyes of all, is in harmony with the traditions of the family. but this is not an essential requirement, because we are the best warriors in life, unique and with great strengths that overcome any weakness we may have«, our artist affirms with great optimism.
I took the opportunity to ask our guest artist a few questions about her musical career and she has been happy to share the answers via email.
