Gabby Barrett’s vocal prowess is on full display in the just-released live performance video for her debut single, “I Hope.”
The revengeful anthem is stripped down for the intimate performance clip, highlighting Barrett’s strong vocals. Dubbed “I Hope (Downtown Session),” the video and live performance track were shot and recorded in downtown Nashville.
Check out the brand new clip below.
“I Hope” was co-written by Barrett alongside Jon Nite and Zachary Kale during a time when Barrett felt she needed to prove herself after becoming a finalist on ABC’s American Idol in 2018.
“I came off the show, and zero labels were trying to grab at me. At all. I mean, none,” she recalled in a candid interview with Country Now. “I was like, ‘Okay, I’m gonna stick my nose to the ground and really focus on writing songs, and hopefully get one that’s good. And we got ‘I Hope’ out of it.”
As “I Hope” continues to turn heads, the newlywed is hard at work on her upcoming debut album. Later this month, the former American Idol finalist hit the road with Chris Lane on his Big Big Plans Tour.
