At the age of 17, Angelina has lived in six countries around the world due to her dad’s job. As an expat, she’s learned to adapt to new cultures, languages and schools. Most recently, she lived in Dubai and has been inspired by the city’s culture. She’s fallen in love with Arabic music and says it’s influenced her sound. Music was always a constant, no matter where Angelina traveled. Whether she was on vacation in Thailand or at school in Shanghai, she’d find a place to karaoke or an assembly to perform at. The biggest crowd she sang for was a cousin’s wedding of nearly 300 people. She recently graduated high school and has been accepted into Berklee College of Music and the University of Michigan.
