Early life

Angelique was born February 7, 1998 in the Bahamas and was brought up in a family with an extensive musical background. Her music producer father, Gregg White, was the first to sign alternative hip-hop group Arrested Development. Angelique grew up as a student of music. She began studying piano, guitar, and drums as a child and spent extensive personal time studying the great works of Broadway, Disney Classics, and historical music artists like Frank Sinatra and Diana Ross.

Her first live performance was at a talent pageant that she entered herself into at the age of 9. She performed an original song that she wrote especially for that occasion and placed first runner-up. Angelique went on to perform at numerous school performances and events. Angelique's first original songs began playing on local radio stations in The Bahamas while she was still 11 years old.

Personal life

Sabrina has a youtube channel that she operates with her brother, Tristan White. Their youtube page is called "TristAngie Productions". They usually ask their viewers for challenges and choose one to do when Sabrina isn't in the studio. She spends a lot of time in the studio working on more music.

Music career

At the age of 12, with support from her parents, she began intensive studio recording and vocal training. Her YouTube videos attracted the attention of veteran radio executive Gary Bernstein, who formed a partnership with Angelique's father to co-manage her career.

Angelique's first single,"Pull Up",[1] was released in the summer of 2012 and quickly received international radio play.[2] The single's music video premiered with MTV Buzzworthy,[3] who coined Angelique "the next Rihanna". The music video for "Pull Up" caught the attention of television producer and host Ryan Seacrest,[4] and was featured by top teen outlets including J-14,[4] Hollywire,[5] and Crushable, which featured her as the "next big thing". [6]

"Pull Up" reached #1 on Jamaica's top entertainment channel, HYPE TV. It has also received high-rotation airplay on Sirius-XM "20 on 20" and has been featured on New York City's Z100 "Discover NEW! Music" page.[7] She filmed the remix video for "Pull Up" with over 400 of the top cheerleaders and dancers from the NFL, NBA, MLS and AHL teams.

Angelique's next single "Stop Sign" featuring Shontelle premiered on MTVU on April 3, 2013.[8] Behind-the-scenes footage of Angelique on set Shontelle and YouTube star Andrea Russett was shot and exclusively premiered online by J-14 Magazine.[9] The single's music video debuted at #1 during its first week on HYPE TV, a Jamaican entertainment channel.[7]

In July 2013, Angelique was named as one of the Top 40 Under 40 in the Bahamas.[10]

In February 2014, Angelique released a ballad called "I'm Ready" along with a music video that was shot in her hometown of Nassau, Bahamas.

Cable Bahamas, Ltd.

Angelique recently made history after signing an endorsement deal as the new spokesperson with Cable Bahamas, Ltd. The leading communications provider in the Bahamas. She is the second and youngest face to ever receive the honor.

The provider is currently revamping their products, and Angelique is a part of this new and revitalized initiative where she will be featured in numerous commercials.[11]

As part of Cable Bahamas, the provider released a short film in July 2013 of Angelique singing the Bahamian national anthem, "March On, Bahamaland." The video was filmed on six major islands and landmarks in the Bahamas, with a huge choir and marching band finale.[12]

The contract expired at the end of December 2014.

Performances

In 2012, she played a sold out show at New York City's Webster Hall with Ryan Beatty.

In 2012 the Bahamian government asked Angelique to perform for Sir Sidney Poitier during a ceremony in their home country. Angelique wrote a song dedicated to Poitier.
