Profile:
Angelina Camarillo or simply known as Angelina (Union City, California, born on 1 February 10, 1978) is an American singer for Freestyle/House/Dance music, in addition to being a songwriter. Labeled as the "Latin Queen of Dance" by her music fans.

She is an Upstairs Records recording artist who best remembered for her smash debut hit single "Release Me" which skyrocketed number 7 in Billboard chart in 1996 and number 52 in the Billboard Hot 100. Then followed her next singles "I Don't Need Your Love", "Without Your Love", "Tide Is High" (the only single that has a music video that features Octaviano Silva of SF Spanish Fly and showcases her excellent performance in dancing along with her backup dancers), "Mambo", "Reach Out And Touch Me". Then in 1997, she finally released her debut album simply entitled "The Album".

Upstairs Records planned to release her remix album entiled "Angelina Non-Stop Dance Mega Mix", so they decided to wait for more material. However, it just never made production.

In 1999, she released her next single off of her upcoming sophomore album "Ven A Mi (Come To Me)" entitled "Bailando" which nominated and won the Best Dance Single category of the Latin Billboard Music Awards. Her next singles followed such as "Just Another Day", "Every Time I Think Of You" (written by A.B. Quintanilla III of Kumbia Kings), "Crazy", Tears Are Falling" and "You & Me".

She collaborated her label mates Nasty Boy Klick (NBK) with some singles such as "Perfect Man", "Runaway" and "Notice Me" then SF Spanish Fly's "One Last Try".

In 2003, she released her junior album "Love Ain't Here No More", which is her final album ever released by Upstairs Records for now, with the hit singles "Ever Since The First Time", "Caliente", "Gifted" and "Forever".

Upstairs Records slated to release her greatest hits album simply called "The Hits" but it was not released.

She was one of the members who formed a trio called New Ridaz to release self-titled debut album "New Ridaz" (Zig Zag, Dos & MC Magic) and released a video along with the single entitled "Special Girl".

In 2009, she released her comeback single "Don't Stop" off of her slated senior album. The next single "Ain't Gonna Sweat It" which she even announced and opened a contest to all DJs to produce a remix of that said song to be included as a bonus track was never been officially released for unknown reasons.

Angelina Camarillo is now married to Anthony Ramos, personal fitness trainer whom she met in Houston, Texas and they went back to San Jose, California to pursue her teaching career.

She already made finishing touches of her new recording for her come back senior album and even made a Spanish version of an unknown and brand new dance single.

The last song she ever recorded was "Supernova", which she worked on it at a time when she was unsure whether she wanted to continue her career in music. That said song is never officially released and it was luckily contributed as an official anthem to the community/organization called Supernova (which was quickly evolved into Supernova- Celebrating Life, While Giving Back To The Community) which established by Adrian Espinosa as an annual birthday celebration and a tradition that not only brings diverse communities together, but also provides an opportunity for guests to give back to the community during the holidays.

However, she decided to tentatively postpone her music career and left her company Upstairs Records to fulfill her dream of becoming a teacher which causes her fourth album release to be pushed back.

She is now a Leadership Teacher/Administrator of a well-known and respective institution called ACE Charter High School in San Jose, California but still performing rarely at some shows despite of her new and busy journey that she's enjoying in the field of education.
