American R&B and jazz singer and songwriter.

Bofill was born to a white Cuban father and a black Afro-Latino Puerto Rican mother.

Her first album, Angie (1978) was well received both critically and commercially and included the chart single "This Time I'll Be Sweeter" (co-written by Gwen Guthrie), as well as Bofill's sprawling jazz composition, "Under the Moon and Over the Sky". Less than a year later, a second album, Angel of the Night was released and outperformed its predecessor. The album included the chart singles "What I Wouldn't Do (For the Love of You)" and the up tempo title track, as well as the self-written song "I Try". The reception of these albums positioned Bofill as one of the first Latina singers to find success in the R&B and jazz markets.

Angela Bofill suffered a stroke on January 10, 2006 and was subsequently paralyzed on her left side.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes her for her rising sign in an interview: "AFRO talks to Angie Bofill" by James M. Abraham, Baltimore Afro-American, 6 Nov. 1979, p. 19: "Angie, an earthy Taurian [sic], has an Aquarius rising in her horoscope, which she says is responsible for her varying moods of flightiness and introspection."

A speculative time of 2.22am gives 15 Aquarius rising. Wouldn't be night time, Capricorn was rising then.
