I first heard of Angie vocal skills on YouTube , the track is call " Doin' It On My Own", a very Funky track . She is a very talented singer, she is currently working on a funk project with a musician friend of mine from France and we are also working on a modern funk project with me.
Angela is extremely talented with a beautiful voice. Not only does she sing various genres of music, she is also an actress. She is truly one in a million.
