CS4U: You were on tour with Jake Miller over the summer. How was that experience for you?
Alex Angelo: “The tour with Jake Miller was a blast. We connected with Jake and his crew so well. I like how hard they work as a team and am so thankful to have had this experience. We have a lot of fun hanging out together. We throw the football and ride around on his gliders. It’s been awesome.”
CS4U: What was your favorite city you visited?
Alex Angelo: “I could not believe the warm welcome I got in Milwaukee. It was my first time performing there and the kids were chanting my name before I even got on stage. They were screaming and clapping my entire set. It was a great feeling being there.”
CS4U: Do you have a favorite song to perform from your set?
Alex Angelo: “I love performing my latest release “Turn Me Up!” I ask everyone to turn on their cell phone lights and the house lights go down. It creates a great atmosphere for the beginning of the song. I have really cool choreography created by Flii Styles that I love performing to “Turn Me Up.” It’s a great time.”
CS4U: Your newest single is called “Turn Me Up.” Why should fans look out for this song?
Alex Angelo: “It’s a new type of sound that I am really proud of. It combines pop and EDM styles of music and showcases my more mature sounding voice. The lyrics go deeper and I created an awesome music video to go with it. It’ll be released soon and I am so proud of this song and video.”
CS4U: You are a singer, DJ, and dancer. Do you have a preference in your artistry? Is there any that you put more time and effort into?
Alex Angelo: “The singing is the newest of the three talents. I would say I put more effort into that than the others. I warm up my voice every day before going on stage and rehearse before the start of any new vocal project. I’ve been dancing since I was six years old and this journey all started with dance so I’d say I have a passion for dance but I love all three talents.”
CS4U: Our website is called CelebSecrets4U. Do you have a secret or hidden talent you could share with the fans?
Alex Angelo: “I used to be really into skateboarding which I did for many years just for fun. I also played baseball with a travel team up until a few years ago when my music career started to take off.”
