Most recently, Sophia won a Marvin Hamlisch International Music Award under the category of Contemporary Pop, presented by the legendary Clive Davis, and performed in Times Square with David Osmond for Wonderama TV. With her debut album #Angelicas, she has created a fun, energy-infused, emotional roller coaster of an album.
