In 2002, Angelina started to pursue a career in music. That year she was featured on DJ KRUSH's Shinsoo ~The Message at the Depth~. In 2003 she recorded her demo single with former Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman, who produced her demo, "babybayboo", which lead to a contract with Columbia Records. The demo was then released as her debut single.
Angelina is well known for her use of vibrato to create a unique voice. Although her music may be labeled as folk, her album proved to vary in a broad range of genre from rock to house to ballads.
She is currently on an indefinite hiatus since she released her last single in late 2004.
