Well, they say three times is a charm. “Jazz Collection”, reached the Jazz Billboard Charts and is a unique production of piano and soulful vocals with tons of emotion. This emotion came from the gospel church where she learned to sing and “let it all hang out” as the granddaughter of one of the founding members of the internationally known, Church of God in Christ. The song “Good Guys” is a blend of jazz with a new clever take on storytelling. Angela is not just a pretty face.

I’m always on the look out for that next partner or that next collaboration project.” A fan of such artists as Etta James, Chaka Kahn, Aretha Franklin, and Nina Simone, Angela’s lyrics of inspiration, love, sex, God and life are set to make you dance.
