Singer was starstruck
The starstruck singer was introduced to the actor at the Australian Grand Prix in March.
‘My most embarrassing moment [was] meeting John Travolta and nearly crying in front of him,’ Gabriella tells Now Online.
‘I got introduced to him by the mayor before I sang and that was quite scary.’
Gabriella, 18, later found it hard to concentrate during her performance at the racing event.
‘I’m a massive John Travolta fan,’ she explains.
‘I felt really emotional. I was singing the national anthem at the Grand Prix and he was waving the flag.’
Gabriella Cilmi releases new single Hearts Don’t Lie on 7 June. Her album Ten is out now.
