Wrabel, known for his song “The Village,” performed for residents of the independent, assisted living and memory care community earlier this month
TAMPA, Fla. (Aug. 2, 2021) — Local resident Gloria Salvaggio celebrated her 90th birthday on July 1, 2021. Gloria, who lives at The Watermark at Trinity, an independent, assisted living and memory care community in Pasco County, was looking forward to marking the occasion with her family and friends.
There was talk of a small party with cupcakes and refreshments. Little did she know, her party would have a special musical guest – her grandson, Billboard artist Wrabel, who is known for his song “The Village.”
Wrabel, born Stephen Wrabel, flew to Tampa from Los Angeles to surprise Gloria for her birthday and performed for a small group of residents during her party.
“The residents really enjoyed his music, and we were happy to play a part in surprising Gloria on her big day,” said David Schupack, Executive Director of The Watermark at Trinity. “It’s been wonderful to welcome families back to the community to celebrate birthdays and other occasions.”
Wrabel has worked with artists such as Pink, Kesha, Louis Tomlinson, Backstreet Boys, Ben Platt and more. His single “11 Blocks” reached number 12 on the Billboard Adult Top 40 Charts in 2016 and his video for “The Village” has more than 12 million views.
During the party, he performed his songs “11 Blocks,” and “Nothing but the love.”
“The surprise of my grandson Stephen being there in person was the best part of my day,” said Gloria. “It was absolutely wonderful. I truly love him and love all of the songs that he sang.”
