Recording artist, Angie Johnson, began her military career as an intelligence analyst in the United States Air Force. She later toured as a vocalist with the prestigious Tops In Blue performance group for a year long temporary duty. Upon completion of Tops in Blue she was recruited into the Air Force Band as a full-time lead vocalist. She was honorably discharged after fulfilling her active duty commitment and then transitioned into the Missouri Air National Guard’s 571st Air Force Band, as the lead vocalist in their Top 40 element, Sidewinder. Angie was deployed with Sidewinder to an undisclosed location in the Middle East, where the band gave an impromptu performance for a small group of troops. An audience member recorded Angie’s rendition of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” and posted the video on YouTube, where it went viral. The now-famous video has received more than 3.3 million views and can be seen here: Angie Johnson YouTube Video. Television host Carson Daly saw the video, tracked Angie down via Twitter and invited her to audition for NBC’s “The Voice,” where she became a contestant on Team Cee Lo. The extensive media exposure, combined with her talent and tenacity, caught the attention of Sony Music where she signed a record deal in the fall of 2012. Her debut EP, Sing For You, was released digitally May 21, 2013 and her debut single “Swagger” reached the Top 20 at country radio.
