May Angeles is a California-bred, first generation Filipino who delights in all things ‘soul’. Her love for singing and worship predates her first experience with the platform at the age of 5 singing “Happy Birthday, Jesus” at her father’s community church.
May immigrated to the United States with her family in 2001. Though a naturalized US citizen, she strictly professes loyal citizenship to the Kingdom of God and is hungry to see it revealed on earth as it is in Heaven. Passionate about diversity, May’s heartbeat is to build bridges between social, racial, and generational divisions and to amplify the voices of the unheard.
May holds a BA in Music & Worship Arts from Vanguard University of Southern California. She participated in multiple ensembles that has toured to China, Mexico, Europe and all over the United States, singing at orphanages, churches, and performing at large concert halls as the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in California and the Lincoln Center in New York City. In 2016, she was awarded GMA Immerse Female Artist/Writer of the year and Female Vocalist of the Year in Nashville. She served as a full-time worship leader at Mariners Church Irvine for 3 years.
May is a full-time missionary with People & Songs. As such, she is a signed solo artist/writer, lead voice in the People & Songs touring group and lead writing coach for award-winning songwriting camp The Emerging Sound, in which she has prominent features, and whose albums have charted at #1. Most recently, May was one of the featured artists and writers on the fast rising single, Throne Room Song. She has also featured on the globally viral “Revelation Song” by Jennie Lee Riddle (founder/leader of People & Songs) that has yielded over 35 million views.
She is currently working on her debut record slated to drop in 2020.
