Instructor Andi Gibson was actually born into the arts and entertainment world, having toured in utero with Bob Dylan. At age 2, Andi's acting career began with an appearance in Fleetwood Mac's music video "Gypsy," directed by Kenny Ortega. By age 7, Andi was singing professionally as a guest vocalist, recording for Warner Brothers on a duet with Kim Carnes. Fast forward a few years, and Andi has performed on many major stages: The Staples Center behind Barbra Streisand, Universal Studios Japan, The Pasadena Playhouse, Alliance Theater, Celebrity Cruises, Disneyland Resort, and more. After 18 years of live performing, she shifted her focus from stage to studio, and began doing voice over on commercials for Kraft, Febreze, Target, and Airbnb, to name a few. She soon expanded into the world of video games, voicing Impa in Nintendo’s “Zelda: Breath of the Wild” and “Tears of the Kingdom”. To date, Andi has voiced over 20 video game titles and counting. She can also be heard in the animation world, singing on episodes of “Duncanville” for Fox, “Archibald's Next Big Thing” for Netflix, and “Thundercats Roar!” for Cartoon Network - including the main theme song. Andi also sang on the premiere episode of “Hacks” for HBO Max, and most recently “Bugs Bunny Builders” on Cartoonito. She'll still hop in front of the camera now and then - you can catch Andi as the Witch for Google Nest’s Halloween campaign.
