"There was a reason Hero found me, and I intuitively believe that reason was Christina Grimmie!" explains Hollywood Cinematic Artist Angel of her debut project, the short film music video "Hero." The idea for "Hero" came to Angel after seeing the aftermath of two horrible acts of violence, the tragic shooting of Christina Grimme and the Manchester Arena Bombing at the Ariana Grande Concert. Angel took it upon herself to express the emotions and perspective of the female victims and how they must have felt. 

"I wanted to write, film and perform an emotive piece that would reflect the tragedy of this loss, from the victims perspective and how this cowardly act, affects us all !" says Angel when asked about her inspiration for "Hero."

For the Worldwide debut of "Hero" on January 11th, Angel collaborated on the arrangement with 2017 Oscar Eligible Film Composer and Multi-Instrumentalist Jamie Messenger (The Orchestra) whose previous work includes collaborations with Sia, Hilltop Hoods and the top Symphony Orchestras in Australia.

The music video/short film was possible because of the amazing crew and talent behind the camera. Angel wore many hats on the production as writer, director, producer and musical arrangement. Liam Lacey co-wrote the screenplay with Angel. Anysha Rankin was the cinematographer, and Angel’s look was styled by personal stylist Channing CE. "Hero" was filmed on location at Gold Coast Studio, Queensland, Australia.

Jamie Messenger and Angel arranged the music for "Hero, and also produced along with Siew. The music was recorded live at Red Door Sounds, Melbourne, Australia.

"Be beautiful beyond description in everything you do," Angel advises. This ethos is the reason she chose the stage name "Angel." Angel personifies united global symbolism and uses her work as a messenger to spread her message of peace and unification.

Angel’s next project is soon to be announced. The project is currently under wraps, but it features a collaboration with a well known Hollywood film composer and promises to showcase Angel’s signature Hollywood Glam style. The project is slated for release in May 2018 and will be the 2nd Part of a 11 part Construct that has begun with Project Hero !
