Angelica Hale and Eva Bolando

Angelica Hale is taking America by storm with her amazing voice and spunky stage presence. Angelica won the hearts of the judges and audience members on the hit TV show, America’s Got Talent, singing a stirring rendition of Andra Day’s, Rise Up.

Stephens eventually became pregnant, but miscarried the baby boy they had decided to…
