DEBUT CHILDREN’S BOOK ‘GIGI ROWE WISHES’ OUT EARLY NEXT WEEK
Miami-based, award-winning songwriter, pop singer and children’s book author Gigi Rowe releases her latest family friendly single, “Wishes” with an accompanying lyric video, which premiered in Geek Dad this morning. The single and video precede the release of Gigi’s debut children’s book of the same name, Gigi Rowe Wishes (out early next week), based on her real-life adventures as a recording artist and world traveller.
Grammy-nominated ill Factor (Sia, KYGO, Gwen Stefani) produced “Wishes” in Miami and is a longtime collaborator having worked with Gigi on all of her music for Just Dance, the best-selling dance video game series of all time, from 2017-2019 with singles “Run The Night”, “Got That” and “New Reality.”

Of this project, Gigi says: “What if all your dreams were simply a wish away? That’s exactly what my debut children’s book, Gigi Rowe Wishes, and the accompanying song ‘Wishes’ explores. I believe in the power of the imagination to make the impossible possible. To bring that message to life, and inspire a young audience and people of all ages to manifest a greater reality for themselves, well, that is what the Gigi Rowe world is all about.” In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Daily News, Gigi expanded upon this: “[‘Wishes’ the song] represents everything that the book does, that magic is real and the importance of imagination, the idea of following your instincts, listening to your intuition and not being afraid to reach for your dreams and passions.”
American Songwriter praises “Wishes” as: “…[a] concoction of uncomplicated, yet powerful, sentiments that makes Gigi Rowe an unstoppable force. You can’t listen to her lyrics or read her verse without smiling; she’s too joyful.”
Garnering musical and aesthetic inspiration from early Madonna, Cyndi Lauper and Annie Lennox, Gigi puts a modern twist on classic pop with her infectious tunes and dayglo, bold style. With family friendly entertainment as her core brand, Gigi captures the essence of wonder and possibility in the technicolor dreamland she created.
Gigi is releasing “Wishes” on the heels of her single and video for “Lollipops” which the Miami New Times called, “…a dangerously catchy song…that earworms like ‘Baby Shark’…” To date, “Lollipops” has amassed over 330K Spotify streams since it’s release in late January.
ABOUT GIGI ROWE:
GIGI ROWE is a multi-dimensional universe of entertainment, lifestyle and music inspired by both nostalgia and the future. One part glitter, another part imagination, the bespectacled, vivacious GIGI ROWE is an award-winning songwriter, pop star and sorcerer of sweets who serves up charisma and charm with a side of cupcakes. Forever unpredictable with her hairstyle, GIGI ROWE is both a children’s brand and a timeless spectacle to be enjoyed by audiences of all ages – escaping into a world of possibility, happily blending reality with her own utopia, along the lines of Disney, Marvel, Mattel, Hasbro, LEGO as well as having an appeal similar to Hannah Montana, Jojo Siwa, Lisa Frank, Matilda, Madeline, Eloise and Dora The Explorer.
On the music front, GIGI ROWE was famously called “fantastically talented” by Jay-Z, she was featured on the #1 global dance video game franchise Just Dance and her performances have electrified stages at Lollapalooza and Rock In Rio. GIGI ROWE’s 80s-inspired music is a blend of dance and rock-inspired pop, whisking listeners away whether she is delighted by her favorite sweets on “Lollipops”, celebrating acceptance and individuality on “Color Outside The Lines”, reminiscing youthful days on “Good Times”, diving into an especially raw yet powerful cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In The Dark” or feeling the warm and cuddlies on her signature track “Wishes”.
Speaking of “Wishes”, this is the title of upcoming children’s book GIGI ROWE: WISHES, a fantastical adventure where GIGI takes readers through the sky in her bright pink car, exploring her world, searching for beauty and kindness and enabling children from three to three-hundred to dream far and wide. GIGI leads the way through the cotton candy clouds, in pursuit of her favorite spot the Stardust Motel, where she laughs and hangs with her whimsical bunch of friends like Lady Veronica, Posy Flynn, fellow rockstar Lightning Rad and Cricket, her confidante in life and in cupcakes.
GIGI ROWE’s magnetic aura is what keeps the Rainbow Galaxy in balance and within her universe, with endless opportunities for entertainment, fan engagement and merchandising. Though her music and the book WISHES are at the core of the GIGI ROWE brand, the magic will be further elevated via animation in the form of a series, a theme park ride, musical show, pop-up experience Mermaids ‘n Milkshakes, books, apparel, dolls, accessories like hats and sunglasses, Valentine’s Day notes and greeting cards, costumes and immersive live performances.
