What would make a young girl think that she could take a sax with the audacious determination to travel the world playing gospel? Didn’t she consider that many would say her dream was too ambitious, impractical or unlady like? Didn’t she consider that the world and many church folks would categorical label her a jazz musician in spite her evangelistic exploits and self proclaimed identity of being an “instrumental gospel saxophonist”? Didn’t she consider it’s a mannnnnn’s world!
Nawwww, of course not!…She concluded, “The earth is the Lord’s the fullness thereof and all they that dwell therein,” and went for IT!
Despite the odds, Angella has and is fulfilling the vision of her youth. For the past 21 years she has literally performed throughout the United States and other continents such as Africa, Europe and Asia. By means of television (Day Star, TBN, BET, The Word Network and others), she has performed before over 238 nations. She has encouraged many souls and brought many into the Kingdom.
Angella was featured in Jet magazine with “Best Photo of the Week” with former President Bill Clinton and also headlined on the 40-city “Sister’s in the Spirit” tour along with Mary Mary, Yolanda Adams, and Shirley Caesar. As a three-time Stellar Award Nominee, she is the first female internationally acclaimed gospel saxophonist in the world.
Affectionately known as “the girl that plays with her shoes off,” she is unequivocally Gospel’s Premiere Saxophonist!
