Sony Music Nashville artist, Angie Johnson, whose debut EP, Sing For You, hits stores May 21, 2013, is scheduled to perform at the prestigious Julep Ball 2013 on Friday, May 3. This marks the second year in a row Angie has been invited to appear at the Kentucky Derby’s most high profile pre-party.
Over 1,200 people are expected to attend The Julep 2013 at The KFC Yum Center, which benefits the James Graham Brown Cancer Center. Celebrity guests include actors, athletes, politicians and more.
Currently a Tech Sergeant in the 571st Air National Guard Band, Angie gained international fame when a video of her performing a rousing rendition of Adele’s hit “Rolling in the Deep” was posted to YouTube. The clip, which can be viewed here, has received over 3.2 million views.
Her four-song Sing For You EP includes two songs she co-wrote. The heart-wrenching title track is a moving, true-to-life ballad that showcases Angie’s powerhouse vocals and emotional range. The collaboration, with SESAC Songwriter of the Year Catt Gravitt and renowned producer Josh Leo, was lyrically inspired by Angie’s numerous deployments, along with shared personal accounts of mental and physical pain, by her fellow troops on and off the battlefield.
