Angel got her start in the entertainment industry while still a child, taking singing and dancing lessons and learning a bit of piano. She signed with Jive Records at 13, and joined a teen pop combo called No Secrets. The group debuted in 2001, backing up pin-up sensation Aaron Carter on songs like "Stride [Jump on the Fizzy]" and "Oh Aaron." No Secrets' eponymous full-length arrived a year later and generated some buzz in the Radio Disney universe, most notably with their bubbly cover of the Kim Wilde classic "Kids in America" for the Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius soundtrack. After No Secrets' dissolution, Angel became the initial signee to L.A.-based Midas Records. Believe in Angels Believe in Me, her solo debut, appeared in August 2004. It featured a mix of club, dance-pop, and R&B elements, and included a collaboration with hot production team the Matrix. That autumn, Angel supported the album with a successful mall tour co-sponsored by the teen lifestyle chain Dry Ice. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi
