Angela Hearns

   Angela is the youngest of six children born to Bishop Henry and Essie Hearns. She grew up in a home filled with love, fun and music, which is where her love for singing began.  Her skills were developed by singing for her first vocal “coach”, her  oldest sister, Valeria when she was very small.  She sang in the Pastor’s Choir at First Missionary Baptist Church, as it was named then, and matriculated until she could sing with the “big choir.”

   Angela grew up in the Antelope Valley and attended local schools until she entered her college years.  She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Radio-Television and Film from California State University at Northridge.  She was one of the few persons of color to be an on-air news reporter for Channel 3 News in the early 1990’s.  She was also a substitute teacher for the Antelope Valley Union High School District as well as Los Angeles County Office of Education.  Angela also taught Adult Basic Education II at the California State Prison, Lancaster, for five years.  Ms. Hearns felt a calling to return to school to pursue a Master’s Degree in the field of Social Welfare, as it would equip her to fulfill one of her other passions... helping people.  She graduated from UCLA in 1998 with her MSW.  She was hired by the Los Angeles County Probation Department in 1999, where she is currently employed.  

   Angela serves as the Minister of Music at her church, Living Stone Cathedral of Worship, where she supervises all music entities and dance teams.  

   In here spare time, she enjoys traveling, shopping and interior decorating.
