Early years

Gabriel Bello gabrielbellomusiccomwpcontentuploads201207g

Gabriel was born in Lawrence, Massachusetts the second of four children. Both of his parents immigrated to the United States from the Dominican Republic. His family relocated to DeLand, Florida where he grew up singing and playing in his church choir at The Sanctuary DeLand Church of God. He began playing flute at 11, alto saxophone at 13 and piano at 18. While studying music at Lee University in Cleveland, Bello was diagnosed with Hodgkins disease and left school for six months of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. He recovered, and attributing this to playing a concert/service with Christian Worship Artist Ron Kenoly, he went right into full-time ministry. While working full-time with local churches in North Carolina and Virginia Gabriel honed his skills as a producer, arranger and audio engineer. He then moved to Nashville, Tennessee to further sharpen his skills as a song writer and learn the ropes of the music business. During his time in Nashville he was picked to be one of two candidates to be right off American Idol Carrie Underwood's music director.
