An artist with extraordinary talent and vocal range, the Harlem-born, St. Helena Island product first picked up a microphone at the tender age of three and performed at community events.

This release propelled Gwen into the spotlight, garnering national media recognition, performance opportunities nationwide and a rising star status. That year, she also won Female R&B Artist of the Year at the South Carolina Music Awards. In June of 2017, Gwen released her long-awaited album titled, “Love, Dreams & Visions”, a project that exemplifies her love of music.
