Angelina

Angelina (born Angelina Camarillo on February 10, 1976 in Union City, California) is a female dance\freestyle singer that started her career in the mid-90's. She graduated from James Logan High School in 1994 and in January of 1996, Angelina signed to Upstairs Records.
In October of that same year, Angelina released her debut album, "The Album" which peaked at #45 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart.
The first single, "Release Me" managed to peak at #52 on the Billboard Hot 100, #9 on Billboard's Rhythmic Top 40 chart, and #6 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart. It became Angelina's only highest chart appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 and hit song to date.
The second single, "I Don't Need Your Love" peaked at #69 on the Billboard Hot 100, #21 on Billboard's Rhythmic Top 40 chart, and #15 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart.
The third single, a cover version of Blondie's "The Tide is High" peaked at #89 on the Billboard Hot 100, #28 on Billboard's Rhythmic Top 40 chart, and #46 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles chart.
The fourth single, "Without Your Love" peaked at #82 on the Billboard Hot 100. Two more singles "Mambo" and "Reach Out and Touch Me" were released, but didn't appear to make an impact on the charts. Angelina graduated from Santa Clara University in 1998 and studied psychology there. In 1999, Angelina released her sophomore album, "Ven a Mi [Come to Me]" which didn't chart on the Billboard charts.
Four singles: "Bailando," "Tears are Falling," "Just Another Day" [which was a moderately successful dance song], and "You and Me" were released as singles, but didn't match the success of Angelina's previously charted singles.
After that, nothing much was heard from Angelina until 2003 when she released her third album, "Love Ain't Here No More." It's unknown how or if the album made the charts at all.

After the death of her brother Daniel in 2006, Angelina stopped writing songs and for a while, she toured on the dance music circuit. These days, she is retired from the entertainment business and works as a school teacher in East San Jose, California.
