Angela T. Clark

Performing in commercials since the age of 4, Angela was born in Orangeburg, South Carolina. A true Southern Belle, she has a dual degree in Theatre and Business from South Carolina State University.

Her musical introduction began early under the influence of her parents love of jazz. She credits her style to a mixture of Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday and Lena Horne. Her education into the intricacies of jazz styling was honed under the direction of Dr. Alvin Fulton and the South Carolina State University Jazz Ensemble and had the unique introduction to Jazz greats like Frank Foster, Jimmy Heath, Oscar Peterson and Carmen McRae. The first African American woman to hold the titles of Miss North Charleston, SC Queen of Roses and Miss Orangeburg County in the Miss South Carolina/America Scholarship Organization, she has performed in 76 countries and all 50 states as a singer, dancer and actress working as a performer in the cruise line industry since 1995.

Currently living in Greenville, South Carolina, Angela was the Featured Headline Entertainer in “Stars”, an exclusive supper club with the six star luxury Silver Sea Cruise Lines on board the Silver Spirit. Her first live recording ‘Unfolding” featuring Alan Lee on piano was released worldwide on November 1, 2011 and is available on iTunes, Facebook and CD Baby websites. Thrilled about her first holiday album being released in November 2019, Angela along with 12 others was honored and inducted into the South Carolina State University 2019 Jazz Hall of Fame.

Angela sings the blues.

How we never made it to the ship’s jazz nightclub Stars up to this point completely baffles me. We joined friends for a post dinner listen to the silvery vocals of singer Angela Clark and the bluesy tinkling of pianist Michelle Yap Wei Mien until the clock struck twelve.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
