Angelica

Angelica (born Angelica Garcia on May 21, 1972 in El Monte, California) was a pop singer from the 90's.

She grew up in a family of musicians including her uncle, Eusebio Garcia, who was the director of Mexico's Marachi Toluca.
In 1991, Angelica released her debut album, "Angel Baby" on Quality Records, which peaked at #37 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart.
Her cover version of Rosie & The Originals' 1960 song, "Angel Baby" which peaked at #29 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January of 1992, becoming her only appearance on the Hot 100.
Her next single, "Next To You" didn't reach the same success as her debut single. Angelica starred on the Spanish-language variety show, "La Hora Feliz" for two years and won "Best New Artist Honors" in the Mexican national talent contest, "Juguemos a Cantar."
In 1997, Angelica released her self-titled Spanish-language album on Atlantic Records. It's unknown how or if the album ever made the charts.

The first single from the album, "Vaya" was successful in Central and South America, but it's unknown how it made the charts.
The follow-up singles, "Mira," "Lloro / Enviandome Angeles," and "Quando M'en Vo" were released, but once again, it's unknown how it made the charts at all.

These days, Angelica is married to an Episcopalian priest and has a daughter, who is in college. She used to live in East Los Angeles, but according to comments from YouTube & the Isle of Deserted Pop Stars, she now resides in Virginia.
