Gisela (born January 1, 1979) is a Catalan pop singer and a Spanish dub actress. She was born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, and became famous after placing eighth in the first Spanish edition of Operación Triunfo. Before the start of Operacion Triunfo, she was a student at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, studying journalism.
Career after Operación Triunfo
Her first album was Parte De Mí. It came out in Spain in 2002, selling 260,000 copies in a few weeks. Este Amor Es Tuyo, won the Viña del Mar International Song Festival contest in 2003 and also she won the award for best voice in the same edition. That year she also sang at the Eurovision Song Contest 2002 in Tallinn with her friend Rosa López.
Her second album in 2003, Más Allá has five singles, including Más Allá (and Catalan version: Més enllà), the No.1 Sola and Amor Divino. Also in 2003, her version of Irene Cara's "What a Feeling" was included in an advert in the United Kingdom.
Ni te lo imaginas
Her third album, Ni te lo imaginas, came out in 2006, under a new record label (Filmax, rather than Vale Music). There were four singles off the album, the first and the third becoming Gisela's most successful so far in her career. The first was Turu-Turu, a pop ballad reaching No.1 in Spain on its second week. Filmax released a Special Edition version of the album, including two new songs, the first called Mi mundo eres tú and the second, Viviré en tus sueños.
She has performed regional voice roles for the Disney movies Peter Pan (2002), Beauty and the Beast (2003), the singing voice of Erika in Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper (2004), Enchanted as the singing voice of Giselle (2007), and, in both Castilian Spanish and Catalan, Frozen as the singing voice of Elsa (2013), where she was also featured in the films' original soundtracks in those regions. She was also in The Hairy tooth fairy 1 and 2 (2006 and 2008), Copito de Nieve (2011) and Serie B (2012), in Castilian Spanish.
