Biography

Angelica
(pronounced AHN-GE-LEE-KAH)

She is a singer, songwriter and producer, blessed with creativity in many fields: fine arts, writing, fashion, dance, fitness & nutrition.

It is purely her passion for music, her commitment to her dream and the knowing of herself that has driven Angelica to share her message of love with you today. This is her journey in life, which she started on so many years back…

Angelica’s story is not about the fact that she literally grew up on stage, singing and dancing since she was 5 years old, it’s not about the fact that she is able to cover with amazing control, one of the widest vocal ranges (from E below middle C all the way to the soprano and whistle ranges), it’s not about all the Trophies and Awards she won, it’s not about her soulful lyrics, full of emotion and truth, it’s not even about her creating those serene yet strong vocal leads and unique backup and vocal effects. Her story is not about the fact that when she is on stage she allows herself to be vulnerable and strong at the same time…

Her story is about something else. It’s about will power, faith and hope. She was able to raise from a very harsh communist environment, put her trade mark in the show business in her native country, then leave…immigrate at the age of 24 to a foreign country where she new no language, no people, no customs…

For years she went through the hardships of being an immigrant, working in various jobs as a telemarketer, working door to door and selling shoes, she went through the hardships of a very abusive marriage, not being allowed to even sing in the shower…

Her career was a matter of the past at that point, but not even for a second did Angelica think that she is anything else but a performer.

She went to College, graduated as a fitness consultant and personal trainer, she took courses on make up and hair artistry, all that so she can keep herself in shape physically and mentally for her career which she was about to start all over again. This time in a different country: Canada.

She decided that in her life there was no more room for people telling her what to do, so she eliminated the abuser from her life. She didn’t need to hear from somebody that she is not good enough...

But Angelica always saw the good in every situation, so she cherished all those difficult times which actually helped her become a songwriter. Soon after, Angelica started writing music in English, one song after another. Songs about when she was young, songs about her life as an immigrant, songs about the joy of finally feeling home in a different country, songs about answering to everything and everybody’s negative intentions through the power of Love, songs about liberation and living as who she is…

She is now a fully-grown artist, with many years of stage experience, writing and producing her own songs, with a clear vision about her music.

Angelica is very much looking forward to let the world know about her message: Love, Compassion, Purity, Innocence and Truth. "Discover who you really are and act upon it"- is her message…Love others and don't forget to love yourself too…

You're My Reflection

YOU’RE MY REFLECTION
Music & Lyrics by Angelica

DROPS OF RAIN ARE FALLING ON THE GROUND
AND THEY’RE SLOWLY TAKING YOUR SHAPE AND SOUND…
ANYWHERE I LOOK AROUND ME, EVERYTIME I SMILE,
YOUR BEAUTY IS WHAT I SEE SMILING BACK AT ME.

CHORUS:
YOU’RE MY REFLECTION,
MY SOUL’S EXPRESSION.
MY LOVE FOR YOU GOES FAR BEYOND THE SUN…
I KNOW THAT YOU AND I ARE ONE.

EVERYTIME YOU SMILE OUT TO THE WORLD
IT FEELS DIVINE LOVE IS RIGHT HERE, IN MY HAND.
I WISH I CAN SHARE THIS POWER WITH ALL WONDERING SOULS,
SO THEY TOO FEEL AS SURREAL AS HOW YOU MAKE ME FEEL…

CHORUS:
YOU’RE MY REFLECTION,
MY SOUL’S EXPRESSION.
MY LOVE FOR YOU GOES FAR BEYOND THE SUN,
I KNOW THAT YOU AND I ARE ONE

BRIDGE:

SO MANY YEARS
OF WONDERING AND SEARCHING FOR SOMEONE…
IN YOUR ARMS NOW I’M HOME…

CHORUS:
YOU’RE MY REFLECTION,
MY SOUL’S EXPRESSION.
MY LOVE FOR YOU GOES FAR BEYOND THE SUN,
I KNOW THAT YOU AND I ARE ONE.
YOU’RE ME REFLECTION…

Strong

STRONG
Music & Lyrics by Angelica

CONTROLING THOUGHTS, CONTROLING WORDS
HAVE TRIED TO SHUT MY SONG...
I DIDN’T LOOK BEYOND THE DARKNESS,
I THOUGHT THAT I WAS WRONG.

THEY CUT MY WINGS
AND TRIED TO GIVE ME A DESTINY...
AND TOLD ME WITH A SMILY FACE
THAT’S WHERE I WANTED TO BE...

CONTROLING THOUGHTS, CONTROLING WORDS
HAVE TRIED TO SHUT MY SONG.
ONE DAY I LOOKED INSIDE MY HEART
AND FOUND SOMETHING I KNEW ALL ALONG: I’M STRONG.

STRONG ENOUGH TO LET MY TRUTH SHINE,
I’M STRONG ENOUGH TO GENUINELY SMILE;
I’LL OPEN MY ARMS AND WILL LOVE AGAIN,
I’M STRONG ENOUGH TO SHOW AND SAY WHO I AM.

CONTROLING THOUGHTS, CONTROLING WORDS
HAVE TRIED TO SHUT MY SONG...
ONE DAY I LOOKED INSIDE MY HEART
AND FOUND SOMETHING I KNEW ALL ALONG:

I’M STRONG
I AM STRONG
I AM STRONG

Givers Of Light

Written By: Angelica


We're trying hard to find that something
That puts our lifes at ease.
We're prayin that God would give us the answer to His quiz...
We're trying to bring some light
In our own, innocent way...
And if the light's not bright enough
We judje ourselfes at the end of each day...

Chorus:

Nobody's wrong, nobody's wright,
It's just the way things are...
We just forget once in a while
To look up at our own star.
So let's all try to understand,
Let's try to have more wisdom...
Nobody's wrong, nobody's wright,
We're all givers of light.

I know you're tired, stop a moment:
The answer's in your heart!
You just be true to yourself, and live your life as who you really are...
We need not to pretend,
We need no made up vows;
The only vow we ever need
We make with Love in our own heart's house.

Chorus:

Nobody's wrong, nobody's wright,
It's just the way things are...
We just forget once in a while
To look up at our own star.
So let's all try to understand,
Let's try to have more wisdom...
Nobody's wrong, nobody's wright,
We're all givers of light.

We can all give light,
So let's be givers of light...
