If you’re an avid American Idol fan, you already know that there are high hopes this season for Angela Miller of Beverly, Massachusetts. In fact, many Internet predictions and spoilers name her as one of the top 20 girls and some even as the next American Idol.
Although Angie has a significant hearing loss in both ears, she hasn’t stopped chasing her dream and developing her gift.
I had a chance to catch up with Angela during Hollywood Week on American Idol. Here’s a little of what she had to say.
eNannySource: I’ve heard you say “dream big.” What does that mean?
Angela: Dream big has been a motto of mine for a long time. I think it is important for everyone, no matter how old you are, to always dream big and never settle for second best! This motto means so much to me I even have it tattooed on my back. I also call all of my supporters Dreamers!
eNannySource: What do you have to say to kids who are dreaming big and watching you live out your dreams?
Angela: I hope and pray that I can set a good example to every single person watching me on American Idol and inspire them to chase after their dreams just like I have!
eNannySource: I know you have a super close relationship with your brother Jon. Why do you think that is so? What do you think your parents did to encourage it?
Angela: I do have the most amazing brother Jon Miller, and the most incredible parents! My parents have set an amazing example. They are the most incredible and supportive parents! They are always there for my brother and me and always encourage us in our music!
eNannySource: How did you discover your talent?
Angela: I have been singing for my whole life! I think around the age of 9 is when I realized how much I love singing and realized I wanted to do it for the rest of my life.
eNannySource: What encouragement do you have to kids who are trying to discover theirs?
Angela: Everyone has a gift. Everyone. If you don’t know what it is, keep searching and don’t give up! It doesn’t have to be something like singing or dancing, it could be something as simple as being gifted in hospitality, communication, or encouragement. Whatever it is, it can be used powerfully!
eNannySource: What’s your favorite kind of music to sing? Who is your favorite singer?
Angela: I love ballads that are very edgy and gritty! Like soulful R&B. My favorite singer is definitely Jessie J! Love her!!
eNannySource: Is there anything else you’d like to share?
Angela: I am SOOOO excited to be a part of this American Idol journey!! And I can’t wait to see all that is going to happen! Thank you so much to everyone who is supporting me! All you Dreamers
