Ms. Gizile was born and raised in Baltimore City, MD. Over the years she has mastered her talents and is now working on her first independent album entitled "Introducing Ms. Gizile, Vol. I., Lovin' from the Soul", due to be released Fall 2016.
Ms. Gizile was introduced to the music/entertainment industry by her late uncle Marvin who was a local DJ in Baltimore in the 80's and 90's. He would let her go through all of his music albums from old school R&B to hiphop. Those moments inspired her passion for music. As a young girl, she also had a strong natural talent in writing. From poetry to song lyrics, since the age of six, she could write it all.
Growing up in the church was very influential to Ms Gizile as well. Her experience singing on the choir and directing the church choir for several years taught her the importance of harmony and singing from the soul. More recently, Ms. Gizile has written song lyrics for several local artist and also sung background for a local band (DeNell & Jam Session) for the past 5 years. This experienced encouraged her to expand upon her talents and work on her own independent project.
From balancing family to career, with the support of her mother, father, children, and family, Ms. Gizile is proving to the world that she is indeed a "Superwoman". In the words of her grandfather that always stuck in her mind, "Do it and forget it, then you'll never forget to do it", she is truly chasing her dreams on a limitless path.
