In what may be a first for a promotional tour, author/singer Angelica will be signing copies of her new book Remember Who You are, and performing songs from the accompanying CD. A truly unique innovation, Angelica's Book & CD is a guiding light for anyone looking to rediscover their own potential, passion, and beauty. A collection of experience-based inspirational writings, the book Remember Who You Are - the Story Behind the Song has been the driving force and inspiration behind the music on the accompanying CD.

Angelica's goal in creating the Book & CD has been to share with others how to overcome overwhelming personal challenges, tune into their inner strength and obtain the dignity they deserve. Notes Angelica, "I hope my words and music can play a role in helping people live their passion and remember the beauty and perfection of who they really are."

Angelica's personal back-story is in stark contrast to the diva lifestyle often associated with female pop-classical singers. Born and raised in communist Romania, her family lived in extremely modest conditions, under constant threat of government persecution. Gifted with a natural musical talent, Angelica had the makings of a promising career early on, one that lead to television appearances and non-stop touring. Sadly, her subsequent joy of moving to North America was marred by a painfully difficult and controlling marriage. Angelica was cut off from her loved ones back home and forced to abandon all musical aspirations. Over time, Angelica slowly built up the courage and inner strength to leave her marriage, start life over, and begin pursuing her dream of music once again. Which brings us to present day. Remember Who You Are – the Story Behind the Song chronicles Angelica's journey through the darkness into light. This is a rich, personal Book & CD of faith, inspiration, willpower and liberation.

Featuring lush orchestration, pop sensibilities and a flawless voice with a nearly five-octave range, the accompanying CD Remember Who You Are brims with a confidence rarely found in a debut release. "Angelica has an amazing voice, up there with Lara Fabian and Celine Dion" says Frank Peterson, producer of Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman.

Angelica's Book & CD Signing and Performance Tour will start in the GTA Chapters/Indigo locations between February 5th and April 2nd, followed by a U.S. Tour, spring 2011. A great chance to meet this incredible artist and also listen to her unparallel voice.

February 12 & 26: Indigo, Erin Mills Town Centre, Mississauga; February 20 & March 5: Indigo, Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Toronto; March 12: Oakville Town Center, Oakville; March 19: Chapters, East Woodbridge Centre, Woodbridge; March 26: Chapters, Markham; April 2: Chapters, Bayview Village, Toronto.
