He performed for eight United States’ Presidents, and was a Jazz Ambassador for State Department tours in the Middle East and Africa. More than fifty jazz festivals have featured him at sea and on land in all seven continents, many of which were named in his honor.

The one thing most people take away from one of  Angie Cockrell’s concerts is the lasting impression that her voice had on them and how much they enjoyed listening to her.

Angie’s voice – a rich, soulful, smooth, heart-melting voice – is a rare one that conjures up comparisons to icons Linda Ronstadt, Ann Wilson, Sarah Vaughan, Patsy Cline, Karen Carpenter, Etta James, Eva Cassidy, and Whitney Houston. Growing up with heavy influences of such a variety of artists like Barbara Streisand, Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder, Al Green, The Beatles, Bread, The Eagles, The Carpenters, Patsy Cline, James Taylor, Carole King, and the list goes on and on and on…… Her love affair with all styles of music has never ended.
