She has appeared on a number of television shows and continued performing on stage in leading roles such as Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Beehive, You Never Know (for which she was nominated for an NAACP Best Supporting Performance Award), and as a featured vocalist with the highly-acclaimed international dance production show Burn the Floor. Most recently, Angela has performed leading roles in Sophisticated Ladies, the world premiere of Ray Charles Live at the Pasadena Playhouse directed by Sheldon Epps, the world premiere of The Princess and the Back-Eyed Pea at San Diego Rep, the Toronto company of Rock of Ages, and Queen for a Day starring Alan Thicke.
