Angelle, a singer songwriter and recording artist from Brooklyn, New York grew up in a musical family and was always encouraged to follow her dreams. Her biggest influence might have been her father, who believed in her dream from the time she was a little girl. Not least of all, two of her uncles enjoyed great commercial success in Haitian music, a legacy she is determined to carry on. Angelle has won several awards for her songwriting abilities, starting in high school with the Grammy Day competition, and more recently making it to the semi-finals in the Song of The Year 2013 contest for her original song “Why”.
Angelle recently released her leading single titled “I Can’t” and she immediately captured our attention with her dynamic voice filled with richness and equipped with extravagant measures. Angelle’s voice stands out apart from the crowd. It’s highly distinguishable and individual to her and I feel as if that’s a special trait to have! Many artists struggle with how to stand out in an overcrowded music industry. Some doesn’t have any specific noticeable qualities about their sound, image, or brand that makes them significantly different. However, Angelle’s unique and noteworthy vocals gives her that impressionable and attracting appeal! I Can’t was a nice tune that can generate buzz and serve as an empowering record with substantial lyricism! I enjoyed the overall mood and vibe Angelle was able to deliver to us and I hope she continues to project her up-beat spirit in her music!
