It is always a beautiful feeling to have someone that supports you every single day of your life. It even makes an individual’s self-esteem a lot higher knowing that someone is there to help him or her, make dreams into reality. That is a very rare moment right there. And Gabby Barrett knew exactly how that felt.
Gabby was sure that he would not be able to audition to American Idol if not for his proud and supportive dad, Blase. Blase is a hard-working dad who spends his day as a maintenance man for Goodwill and spends his night as a cleaning man. With his busy schedule in hopes to provide everything that Gabby needs, he still makes time to be with her. The 17-year-old girl sure loves her daddy so much. She even describes him as her “rock.” Their bond is indeed one-in-a-million. In the video below, Gabby auditioned at American Idol.
She was so vocal about her love of Carrie Underwood. However, Judges Lionel, Katy, and Luke did not find her in her song choice. She then decided to sing a church song and that caught the attention of the judges which made them give her an instant “Golden Ticket to Hollywood”. But the story did not just end there.
As Blase was listening at the back of the door, he feared that his daughter may be devastated if she will not make it. Then Gabby decided to prank her daddy, and Katy Perry herself helped her do so. Katy then went to Gabby’s dad, saying that he needs to console her for she was devastated. Little did the hardworking dad know what a surprise it would bring him. And yes, he was so surprised and emotional at the same time. He cried the moment Gabby showed him her golden ticket. It seemed as though all his hard work has been paid off. Kudos to this wonderful dad!
