Las Vegas resident and Broadway in the HOOD’s own Moya Angela is one of the many talented contestants on Season 11 of America’s Got Talent. A “true powerhouse” says Mel B, judge from America’s Got Talent.
Her audition moved the crowd to a standing ovation while singing a Celine Dion cover of “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now.” The audition was so captivating that Simon Cowell states “I’m gonna’ remember this for a long time to come.”
Angela is a vocalist and an actress who enjoys singing from R&B to gospel to country music. She began singing fearlessly at the age of 14 and today, she says nothing is holding her back!
