Just 24 years old, country singer songwriter, Angie Rey has a BIG dream and the right combination of talent and drive to make it come true!
With her curly top, beautiful smile, and intriguing voice, Angie came from a really small town in Southern California before her family resettled in Tampa Florida. Angie always hoped to one day change the world, one song at a time. From a very tender age, Angie was blessed with successes that most young teenagers can only dream about.
Her music journey began at the age of five, when she was only singing in preschool, the shower, and her bedroom, just like millions of other kids. Years later, at the age of thirteen, she made it to the top eighteen on La Voz Kids, being able to sing with Jessie and Joy and Prince Royce. “I never expected anything like this to happen,” Angie said. “It’s a dream come true.” Shortly after, at the age of 15, she made top 75 on American Idol, being the youngest girl on season 14. Her mature sound and style, her soft tones and powerful delivery of a lyric has her poised to appeal to a wide range of ages and genres. More recently, Angie has opened for various Country stars like Scotty McCreery, Chase Bryant, Jerrod Niemann, John Michael Montgomery, Runaway June and many others!
A winning personality, powerful unique voice, an ear for great lyrics and melodies, along with her “take no prisoners” determination and work ethic, makes Angie a force to be reckoned with in the music business and certainly someone to keep a close eye on as she has set her sights on taking the Country music world by storm!
With fans growing in dozens of countries all over the world, Angie is fast becoming an international sensation. Her LIVE performances leave the crowd wanting more and more, everywhere she performs. But Angie Rey is just getting started!

The first thing one notices when Angie Rey takes the stage is her warm smile that says, “Welcome friends”. She makes a connection with the audience in such an intimate way that when she starts to sing you feel as if she was just singing to you. Her joy on stage is contagious. Even those seasoned warrior musicians that comprise her band now have smiles on their faces, a spring in their step and have unearthed a new level of enthusiasm. Angie with her tall beautiful ballerina-like frame prances on the stage, plays guitar and belts out some incredible originals with her magnificent voice that sound like they are radio bound.
Since Angie is a Tampa native I asked her if she had a chance to check out some of the other local talent, she replied,“ I would love to but I’m not 21 yet and I can’t get into bars”. Well that threw me for a loop, I’m thinking how can someone so young be such a seasoned pro possessing such a high level of stagecraft. She mentioned to me she had participated in the Grammy Project at Ruth Eckerd Hall with Ella Jet of Ella Jet & Future Soul, another young talent making her mark on the Tampa music scene.
In speaking to Rick Morgan, Tampa Bay’s legendary guitarist (Secret Service, Soul Circus Cowboys, The Regulars) and a seasoned Nashville songwriter himself about his newfound enthusiasm with this project. Rick said, “We’re very proud of Angie for all her hard work and tireless drive. Our challenge is to just keep up with her!.. We are very excited to be part of this awesome family/team being assembled by Jase Williams & Pro Go Music Group to help get Angie get where she’s determined to be and, that is of a successful worldwide entertainer.” Rick added “ She is so undeterred that even when someone says no to her, she says, ok thank you I’ll come back again tomorrow.” This reporter’s prediction is this young lady has a level of talent, determination and drive that will set her star bound. Keep an eye an Angie Rey.
