Where it all began
An icon in the making, Angela Blair has been singing since the age of seven years old. Hailing from the great state of Texas, Blair is a multi-talented entertainer with a heart of gold. No stranger to the struggle life, her story is one of determination, courage and faith, which will both encourage and inspire you. Entertaining is something that comes naturally to her, so it was no surprise when at the age of fifteen she was opening shows for the likes of the legendary Mighty Clouds of Joy and 11-time Grammy Award winning Shirley Caesar.
In 2002, Blair-Jeffries was recognized by a Statewide New Artist Showcase in Austin as Texas’ Female Vocalist of the Year. Two years later, in 2004, she was labeled UK’s Greatest Voice You’ve Never Heard. Eventually, all roads would lead Blair to enter and ultimately win the 2005 Kraft Gospel Talent Search, which was held during the annual Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana and winning a cash prize of $25,000. Following her Kraft Gospel Talent Search win, Blair released her debut CD entitled, “It’s All About Love”. God has opened so many amazing doors for Blair, such as the opportunity to minister at the Essence Festival, Bobby Jones Gospel on BET, Super Bowl 46, 2009 Presidential Inauguration, and so much more! Blair has been featured in national publications such as Essence, Ebony, Jet, Today’s Black Woman, Readers Digest and more. She has shared the stage and worked with the likes of Mary J. Blige, Beyoncé, Aretha Franklin, Earth, Wind & Fire, Bret Michaels, Blair Underwood, Jamie Foxx, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Magic Johnson, The Clark Sisters, Minister Louis Farrakhan and many, many more.
