Gwen Perry, vocalista, intèrpret i internacional show woman barreja el jazz, swing, ritme blues i música lleugera amb el seu propi estil, guanyant el sobrenom de “La senyora de la música i de la cançó”. Durant 15 anys va actuar periòdicament a Costa Cruceros, a través de la seva flota de vaixells i viatjant al voltant del món.

Al març de 2012 Gwen va ser condecorada per la Fundació AEFE amb la Creu d’Or Europea per Distinció en la categoria de Cantant internacional, Humanitària i Productora. Al juny de 2012 Gwen va actuar al Camp Nou en solidaritat amb el Rotary Club, la Fundació Barça i la Fundació Bill i Melinda Gates contra la pòlio com artista estelar.
