"Brigette Johnson Pays Tribute To Teena Marie
Covering the hits, both love songs and party songs, one had the feeling Teena was looking down from above and smiling. From the moment Brigette first stepped on the stage, that house was Her house!
The Band was tight, the vocal technicians (I detest the term "background singers") demonstrated beautiful harmonies, and the MC, Jamar Dukes (an acclaimed vocalist who doubled as the Music Director), did what an MC is supposed to do, that is, make the audience think they are about to see the best show ever. Without a lot of self hype!
Singer. Songwriter. Arranger. Vocal Consultant. Multi-talented vocalist Angelica Baylor is no stranger to the stage, studio or the entertainment industry. Also often affectionately called, “Jelly”, this small-town Westmoreland County native still calls Virginia her home. Angelica is the embodiment of soul, faith, and favor. Her career as an international vocalist, has taken her all over the world; from London, England to the country of Uganda in East Africa.
Angelica, trendy, fashion forward, yet bubbly and down to earth, has always been ready to entertain an audience. As a child, Jelly dreamed of being a singer and performer. She picked up her first microphone at the age of 4, singing in church. During her senior year in high school, she was given an opportunity to focus on her solo career with a record deal by a local production company. Excited with her chances, she spent many hours in recording studios and gracing the stages of venues throughout the Richmond, VA and Washington D.C. regions. Although singing was her dream, she knew that education was still a priority. “It was very time consuming, and I knew that my education was important.” She went on to pursue an undergraduate degree in Psychology at James Madison University in 2007. While in attendance, Angelica found time to develop and arrange vocals for a female group of all-star singers, who performed at the most illustrious events on campus.
In the midst of this, Angelica was hired by national recording artist, Ginuwine in 2010. With a signature oriental-style fan in hand, Angelica set out to tour with the award-winning Ginuwine team. This propelled her to 3 continents, 7 countries and nearly all 50 of the United States! “Getting to travel the world, doing what I love to do, has been the biggest blessing ever!” says Angelica. While touring, she shared the stage with some of the industries finest talents such as The Isley Brothers, Faith Evans, 112, and the iconic family, The Jacksons. In 2014, she competed in the competition, “I Want To Be Signed” produced by Lil’ G of Silk and was awarded with prestigious honors.
After nearly a decade of continually singing with Ginuwine, in 2019 Angelica also joined a corporate band based out of Washington D.C. called Rhythm6. Rhythm6 has performed up and down the entire East Coast for A-List events, such as the Kennedy family’s wedding. Most recently, Angelica has been in the studio, creating original music and focusing on her solo brand. Since the start of this renewed musical journey, she has gained the attention of industry moguls such as R&B legend, Tony Terry.
