Laurieann Gibson has worked behind the scenes for superstars including Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, but she was in the spotlight on Monday’s “Good Morning America.” The singer-choreographer was joined by her mentor Akon as she introduced her stage persona Harlee to the public.
“She’s a real superstar, so ultimately she always had that within her,” said Akon.
Harlee put her moves on display in the Times Square studio, performing “Dream Warriors,” the first single off her upcoming album.
“The album is just shaping up to be brilliant,” she said. “It’s a musical dance journey and it’s about fighting for those who feel like they’re too weak to fight for themselves.”
Watch Harlee make her television debut.
