Gabrielle Ruiz (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, In The Heights) Twinkles With Kindness This Christmas

In This Episode

Broadway and television star Gabrielle Ruiz joins The Art of Kindness with Robert Peterpaul to discuss her hack for accepting compliments, working on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, new Christmas song Twinkle Twinkle and much more. Plus, Mrs. Peterpaul joins us for your kindness tip of the week!

Today’s guest is Broadway star, singer, actress and dancer Gabrielle Ruiz. The triple threat broke onto the Broadway scene starring in shows like If/Then with Idina Menzel, Evita with Ricky Martin and In The Heights with Lin-Manuel Miranda. Lin loved her work on the latter so much that he referred her to the team of a new CW pilot called Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. The rest of course is history as Gabrielle has become best known for bringing to life Valencia Perez on all four seasons of the Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning musical comedy series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Gabrielle has also lent her voice to series like Star Trek: Lower Decks, a hit podcast called What Friends Are For and now new music! She released her first original holiday single this year called Twinkle Twinkle, which will give you all the holiday feels.
