warmed my soul, it felt like the melodies,

through my veins like fire."

Born and raised in Whittier California, Angelica Montaño's Mexican roots run deep. Her parents are from Los Reyes Michoacán Mexico. "My best childhood memory is when my parents sold paletas at the Pico Rivera Sports Arena." said Montaño. "It was a thrill to meet many Mexican singers backstage at the event."  You might say that was the beginning of her love affair with traditional Mexican music.

"Selena Quintanilla was my very first role model," she said. "Selena inspired me at such a young age to sing and dance on stage. Because of her singing and performing has always come naturally to me."

 

"I remember as a kid putting on headphones and blasting my Alejandro Fernandez, Mariachi Vargas, and Mariachi Sol de Mexico CDs and day dream of one day performing on a big stage with the best Mariachi band ever known," she said.
