Angélique’s star quality was evident at age four, when she made her musical debut during a class assembly in her hometown of Alameda, California. Angélique quickly developed a taste for being in the spotlight and performed solo in several church and school talent shows throughout her school years. “I was such a diva-in-training,” she says with a grin. “I loved being the center of attention.”
As one can tell, Angélique’s musical influences are varied; Bob Marley and Elton John discovered from her next door neighbors’ garage sale finds as well as her mother’s vintage R&B soul and jazz, sister Denise’s Santana and Stevie Wonder, daddy’s country and later Edith Piaf, Josephine Baker and Julio Iglesias from her language studies.
Fully multi-lingual, Angélique’s lyrics are sung in Spanish, French, and English with emotionally charged songs that mesh well with her sensual voice and escort the listener into a thought provoking, head boppin’, neo-soulful world.
As an independent artist Angélique achieved amazing success with her “neo soul with a touch of funk” music being embraced by over 10,000 fans and hundreds of radio stations.
Angélique’s warmth, effervescent personality in addition to her electrifying performances translate so well on the stage that even skeptics have been known to boogie in their seats. Furthermore, Angélique’s international appeal and unparalleled musicianship make her one of the most exciting performers in the business. “I love performing and connecting with audiences,” says Angélique. “Ever since I was a four year old diva-in-training.”
