COLUMBUS, Ohio — Every artist needs that one big break, and you could help one Columbus woman get hers. Gabrielle Solange is a singer and musician who goes by the stage name “7HO3NIX,” which is pronounced “Phoenix.”
As a runaway teen who grew up in the foster care system, Solange found music comforting. It was an escape. It was her safe place.
In 2021, 10TV interviewed Solange for a holiday giving story. She said she felt unseen and unheard as a child. Eventually, she just learned to be invisible. She’d spend hours locked away in her room, writing about how she felt.
