Our Very Special Celebrity Patron, Friend, Supporter and Amazing Woman
Having already worked so hard for the AADC Research Trust, we're proud to announce that pop diva Gabrielle has officially nominated us as her chosen charity.
The star, who has enjoyed a string of worldwide hits, has proved an invaluable patron to the AADC, attending both of our sponsored walks and our fund-raising gala in May where she performed her greatest hits to rapturous applause.
She also brought the house down at our successful barn dance last year when she staged a mini concert, much to everyone's delight.
What's more, she's always been incredibly generous in giving up her valuable time to sign autographs and be photographed with her fans - over and beyond the call of duty, we're sure you will agree!
I know all of you involved with the AADC will wish Gabrielle well after releasing her 5th solo album, Always, the first since 2004.
As a single mum, the singer has always juggled motherhood with her career and after a lengthy break from making music, she felt the time was right to head back into the limelight...and how brilliantly she manged it after just completing her amazing 2008 UK Tour
She may be busy for the next few months as her career will no doubt soar once again, but Gabrielle will be keeping in close contact with the AADC and we know we can rely on her. In fact Gabrielle endorsed her support by dedicating the entire back page of her 2008 Tour Brochure to the The AADC Research Trust and has promised to link our website to hers - fantastic news!
Thank you for helping to raise the profile of this Trust and being instrumental in raising AADC disease awareness.
Gabrielle, we wish you every success and look forward to seeing you soon. From all the families and children suffering with AADC deficiency.
