Ilene Angel Livestream
June 1 @ 6:00 pm
Ilene Angel’s multifaceted career has taken her from the stages of Carnegie Hall to the top of the Billboard charts, and from writing books, blogs, and essays to advocating for issues of social justice.
Reading music before she read words, Ilene Angel wrote her first pop song by the time she was nine. Pursuing both voice and piano, she got her bachelor’s degree from Northwestern University, before returning to her native New York to attend The Juilliard School.
Angel’s passion always remained songwriting, so she switched venues from concert halls to nightclubs and local New York TV shows, where she began performing her own songs.
After winning the prestigious Songwriters’ Hall of Fame Abe Olman Award for her song “Silence Where Love Used to Be,” Angel embarked on a fateful trip to Nashville, where she attended a writers’ night at the Bluebird Café and fell in love with the songwriting town. She moved there shortly thereafter.
However, it was not a Nashville country song that would become Angel’s first big hit, but a #1 Radio Disney song titled “I Don’t Think About It,” recorded by Emily Osment from the TV show Hannah Montana.
After penning the Disney hit with co-writer Sue Fabisch, the songwriting duo went on to win the Global Voices for Change songwriting competition and followed that up with the widely popular “Costco Queen’ from Fabisch’s hit show Motherhood the Musical.
