New York born, Sophia Angelica is a very unique talent. Growing up she embraced her Argentinian ancestry by learning Spanish in her mother’s bilingual acting classes, where Sophia found her passion for the arts and in particular, music.
Sophia began songwriting as well as performing at the early age of 9, and at the age of 13 she appeared in her first television show, “Good Day New York” on Fox.
Sophia combined her vocal talents together with her acting ability as the voice of the “singing rabbit” for Dora the Explorer on Nickelodeon.
She was also cast by the Cleveland Playhouse in the “Care Program Monologues”, a project created in order to help youth struggling in volatile school environments.
Most notably, Sophia has performed at many cause-related events at the United Nations and other major venues and is constantly re-booked to perform at annual events, award shows and festivals. She is an avid advocate and creative activist for human rights and one of her goals is to help others with her motivational original songs. In March of 2018, Sophia, as lead speaker and performer, completed a University Human Rights Tour in Taiwan and also participated in the 6th Asia-Pacific Human Rights Summit, where she was a delegate for the United States, sang original songs and inspired youth all throughout Taiwan. Coming back, she was invited to perform at the Youth for Human Rights Cherry Blossom Concert in Washington D.C. in front of the Lincoln Memorial.
In 2018, she wrote an original musical, “The Greatest Runaways on Earth”, that was presented in the renown theater Symphony Space, New York on June 9th. Sophia is also currently serving as board director and creating music for the rising international nonprofit organization, Global Peace Chain.
Most recently, she received the HOLA (Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors) Elizabeth Pena Breakthrough Artist Award, and the prestigious Presidential Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) in April 2019 in Washington DC for her work with human rights. Along with the PVSA, she received letters of achievement and recognition from Governor Cuomo, Governor Murphey of NJ, Senator Gillibrand, President Trump, Senator Menéndez, and the State Legislature of New Jersey.
Sophia continues to release singles and working on an original pop album.
