Angela LaShun Blair is another multi‐talented artist to come out of the great state of Texas. Miss Blair is a powerful soul singer, songwriter and entertainer, with the gift to inspire while spreading the word of love. She has dedicated her ministry of “love and inspiration” to helping couples stay in love and those singles looking for love by offering a Godly perspective through music. Taking from her own life experiences, she can engage an audience through any genre of music and create one, if necessary.

Blair attended Booker T. Washington High, Dallas’ art‐magnate school, known for fostering such talent as Erykah Badu and Norah Jones.

Her gift for singing and entertaining was evident at a very young age. At the tender age of seven, family members and friends could hear her belting out everything from Aretha Franklin to Whitney Houston. Church was always a major part of Blair’s upbringing. She secretly practiced, with her cousin and pianist, after church service each Sunday. At age eleven, Blair eventually put her lessons to the test by taking first place in a contest hosted by the church, as she sang Amazing Grace, in front of enthusiastic church members. By the age of fifteen, she opened her first concert for gospel legends, the Mighty Clouds of Joy and 11-‐time Grammy Award winning artist Shirley Caesar.

In 2002, Blair was recognized by a Statewide New Artist Showcase in Austin as Texas’ Female Vocalist of the Year. Two years later she was labeled UK’s Greatest Voice You’ve Never Heard. Even thoughshe garnered the respect of her peers and the industry, it took family members to persuade her to enter the 2005 Kraft Gospel Talent Search during the annual Essence Music Festival. Blair took home the grand prize after delivering a show stopping rendition of God is Able.

Angela’s talent is unlimited and has been demonstrated from the small stage to the big screen. Breaking onto the scene with her first CD release entitled, It’s All About Love, and went on to produce and write several other chart hits. Her lyrics are highly personal relationship and life-nurturing philosophies, which frowns in the face of gloomy themes that saturate today’s airwaves.

Angela Blair is also a respected actress, appropriately cast as an ͚’Angel of Mercy’ singer in the motion picture film, Leap of Faith, starring Steve Martin, Debra Winger, and Liam Neeson. Most recently, she acted as Associate Producer of the official documentary short film, “Barack Obama, the Man and His Journey.”
