Dreams Can Come True: Greatest Hits, Vol. 1 (2001) Gabrielle

Oftentimes, U.K. chart success does not necessarily mean stateside success, as is evident with artists such as Kylie Minogue, Cliff Richard, Simply Red, Robbie Williams, and, in this case, the warm-voiced, anti-diva British soul/pop singer/songwriter Gabrielle, the recipient of 1997's Brit Award for Best British Female Vocalist. Gabrielle scored with an amazing run of hits in Europe, but only one true hit in the U.S. with "Dreams". From start to finish, Dreams Can Come True is a completely accurate representation of Gabrielle's successful career, and truly brings to light just how much great music the U.S.A. has been missing out on.

It went on to become the fifth best selling album of 2001, achieving 4x Platinum in the UK.
