Gabriela Maria Rosa Hernández is the deuteragonist of the 2021 animated film Vivo. She is a 10-year-old girl of Cuban-Dominican descent.


Gabi is a 10-year-old girl of Cuban-Dominican descent with brown eyes. She has lush purple hair with a Mohawk and two ponytails. She wears blue-green glasses, a pink button-down shirt with a black and white tie and a sleeveless denim jacket with a hood, and a multi-colored skirt with purple panties. She has several stickers on her jacket relating to her love of music. On her right hand, she has two bands with the words "best friend" and on the left, many other colorful bracelets, a green watch, and lace-up black and white shoes.


Gabi is a young energetic girl who jumps to the rhythm of her unusual drum. She is optimistic, funny and eager to get to know the world. She is also a rapper. Gabi shows such qualities as caring for Vivo when she offers him a joint apartment after her great-uncle's death, but during a conversation in the car, Gabi also expresses to Vivo and her mom the hidden sadness over the loss of her father.


Early Life

Gabriella Lee Hernandez is a 10-year-old girl of Cuban-Dominican origin. Gabi was born and raised in Key West, Florida with her mother Rosa. We don't know exactly what Gabi's life was like at the time before her father's death, but looking at the family photos, Gabi had a very strong bond with her dad through their shared love of music.

Sometime before the events of Vivo, she dyed her hair purple.


Gabi shows up in Cuba with her mother at her uncle's funeral and immediately approaches Vivo to console him in this difficult time and offers him to live with her in Florida. She discovers that Vivo hid in her suitcase to get to Florida. After failing to get a bus, they are forced to take a shortcut into the Everglades National Park. When Gabi found out the real reason for Vivo's arrival, she remembered that she hadn't had time to tell her dad "I love you" and therefore knew that she had to deliver the song. Gabi shows courage, creativity and optimism while traveling. When Gabi is caught by the security guard and her mother, the girl tells her mother the truth when she returns home, Rosa Hernández doesn't believe her until Vivo himself shows up, who refused to leave his friend behind. After this scene, Gabi explained to her mother how sad she was crowding in the depths of her heart after losing her father, after which her mother told her that dad always knew that she loved him and that this love lives in her heart, after which Rosa took Vivo into the family and later went to Marta's concert. After the concert, Gabi started a new chapter in her life together with Vivo, in which they are to present the audience and their music.
