Originally from Wirral, Gemma has been one of UK’s most requested singers for over a decade now. With Classical and Musical Theatre training she has had a diverse singing and music background. She is also a trained dancer and has stunned audiences with her exceptional on stage performances. During her career spanning over twelve years, Gemma has had the opportunity to work as a Guest Artist for various cruise lines such as Royal Caribbean and Holland America. She has also served as the onboard Showteam’s lead vocalist for some of the leading and most popular cruise lines. Gemma’s contribution in the field of music and crossover singing is simply phenomenal and worth acknowledging.

Gemma is also a key member of the Caamora Theatre Company and participates in numerous musical theatre shows organised by the company on a regular basis. Currently, Gemma is receiving vocal training under highly experienced vocal coach David Barrett wherein Barrett is training her around the Bel Canto tradition of ‘good singing’ and beauty of tone. In September 2016 Gemma launched her very own Music agency, Stand proud Music. The music specialises in female classical crossover singers for wedding and events throughout the UK. Also in December 2016 Gemma released her first Solo album entitled “ Vera Voce”.

I had Gem and Yue provide entertainment at my parents anniversary. They were really easy to talk to and made the whole process simple and straightforward. Gem and Yue were the highlight of the evening. Everyone was blown away by how talented they were and as a duo they work so well together. They were really friendly and everybody loved them. They are so versatile, able to provide a soft backdrop while we ate, and then later get everyone up on their feet dancing and singing along. They are a unique act and I am so grateful to them for making my parents anniversary a night no one will forget!

We booked Gem and Yue for Valentines night and I have to say - after six years of running the Queens arms - it turned out to be exactly what we’ve been missing in the previous years. Gem and Yue performed so well together that they had the guests completely absorbed from the opening bar. From up tempo songs like Jolene to the beautiful moon river. The singing, playing and harmonies were performed brilliantly and you could see that these two have a great understanding and joy at performing together. Although they have a strong repertoire, requests weren’t a problem either. I can’t wait to get them back. Gem and Yue are now the first people I turn to when booking for weddings and birthday bashes.
