Early beginnings

From the ages of 11 to 14, Angell competed in several radio talent shows during the Nice Carnvial. She was declared the winner for four consecutive years. At the age of 15, she began classical singing training at the Conservatory of Nice but she quit shortly after. However she continued singing by performing in piano bars in the Côte d'Azur. Angell settled in Paris in 2001 where she met Didier Barbelivien, the writer of her song "Des années après". The experience was not convincing and Angell went back to the Côte d'Azur.
