For Argentinean-American singer-songwriter Sophia Angelica, it’s been a transformative journey to create music about her personal life in her upcoming album, Angelica.
With social media followers internationally and a unique bilingual flare, Sophia just released two pop singles off her album on 2/22/22, the relatable upbeat “Here I Am” and her Latin-based tropical song “Que Seria De Mi”.
With many TV and festival appearances, she set out on her entertainment career at 6 years of age and made her debut on “Good Day New York” on FOX and “Dora the Explorer” on Nickelodeon.
Having performed around the world and as a global activist, she works closely with the United Nations, and has traveled internationally to combat bullying and discrimination.
In March of 2018, Sophia, as lead speaker and performer, went on a University Human Rights Tour in Taiwan. Soon after, she received the Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors “Breakthrough Artist Award,” and the prestigious “Presidential Volunteer Service Award” in Washington, D.C. for her work with human rights and music.
She’s also received letters of recognition from the New York State Governor's Office, the State Legislature of New Jersey, and many other political leaders.
On a more personal note, Sophia wrote the song, “My Brother, Big Brother,” and created a national music awareness campaign for her brother who, at the time, needed a life-saving kidney transplant.
During the pandemic, Sophia also collaborated with acclaimed producer, Juan Cristiani, on a healing song called, “Survivors”, with 29 musicians from around the world.
Now, along with her online pop debut, Sophia continues to perform across New York and the tri-state area with the Michael Shapira band.
