At the end of the 1970s, Disco was going out and Soul began to take over. Angela Bofill, mostly known for her ballad “This Time I’ll Be Sweeter”, became a known contributor to the genre by the early 1980s. With her Cuban/Puerto-Rican decent, she was one of the first Latina singers to not only popularize, but actually find success in the R&B market. Her 1978 debut album, Angie, scored her several hits including “Angel of the Night,” “Something About You,” and “Holding out for Love.” On this week’s 1983 episode of Soul Train, catch Angie sing, “Too Tough.”
Catch a young Angela Bofill on Soul Train this evening at 10AM EST only on Centric.
