Lady Gabriella Kingston, the daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, has released her first music single.

The song “Out of the Blue” is a jazzy and summery tune that was written by Lady Gabriella and producer Enzo Buono in 2019 for her wedding to Thomas Kingston. It has been released on iTunes, Spotify and other digital platforms. A second song was also released, titled “Bam Bam.”

The music was performed by Gabriella – who is commonly called Ella – and Los Angeles musicians. The Brazilian bossa nova genre inspired both tunes.

Proceeds from the sale of the songs will go to a cause close to Ella’s heart, the non-profit Playing For Change Foundation. The organisation aims to make change through music.

Ella told Hello magazine: “I’ve always loved music, but never imagined I would become involved with it like this – releasing my own songs. It’s a little daunting, but exciting too.”

She performed “Out of the Blue” at her May 2019 wedding reception and said about that performance: “It was late and I’m not sure I sounded my best but one of the singers added some backing, so I hope that made it better. It was a day of so many nerve-racking moments that I thought: ‘I might as well throw this in, too!'”

As for her husband, he is hugely supportive of her music and “has been wonderfully encouraging and gracious from the start.”
