Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Angela M. Wong I was born and raised in Bedstuy Brooklyn. My mother raised me and my sisters and made sure that she gave us everything although she didn’t have much. Her smile is what inspires me to reach higher for my goals because I don’t know how to repay her for raising me to become the woman I am today. I am a versatile artist, and I am currently working on different styles and genres I want people to get up cry, dance and just be
yourself, because today we are so in tuned with following social norms that we usually don’t express ourselves because we are afraid of who is watching us.
How did you come up with your name?
My Artistic name is La Diva, which was given to me by my Grandma, because she said I was into fashion.
What are your influences?
My musical influences have been Salsa singer La India, my mother bought me my first Walkman and cassette at the age of 5 and that is when we first noticed I had a voice. My sister played a major part in helping me develop my writing we would pick topics and write songs and poetry when we were home bored with nothing to do. My musical influences have also been my music teacher Ms. King-Everette I attended Progress High School for professional careers and she taught me how to breathe, harmonize and use my voice. I also would go to an Afro-Cuban church every Sunday where I learned Yoruba music and hope to work on some projects with that sound and language.
How did your musical career begin?
My music career began at the age of 18 I did my first show at a community event in Brooklyn.
What inspires you?
