Everyone knew there was something special about that "little girl with the big voice." Singing at a very young age was expected, since Angela Cherie Lilian Rhodes was born into a musical family in December of 1978. Even though she spent most of her life in Gainesville, Florida, she has always loved to sing and praise God. Throughout her childhood, her voice has filled up church halls, and school auditoriums. Even now, if you ask Angela, what is her passion in life, she will tell you it is to sing.
Angela has sung with several music groups and choirs, most notably with Dynamic Praise out of Oakwood College for several years. She participated in DP's recording project entitled, "You Must Have Faith". After this vocal seasoning she returned home to Gainesville to record a cd with her brother, Lewis Rhodes and United Voices Ministries, an album which features her musical gift on several tracks. On the album entitled, "Spiritual Journey", she leads powerful testimonies in the form of the songs "I Believe," and "Yes".
Coming from a family full of choir directors, instrumentalists, vocalists, and actors, one would think that her musical ability would only be natural, however Angela will tell you it is only by God's grace. In fact, Angela has had to overcome severe asthma and persevere through several hospital visits, but yet she still desires to fulfill God's purpose in her life-- and everyone who hears her knows that the ministry of music surely is a large part of that purpose.
