Ever wonder what what happened to Angelo and Veronica Petrucci, the Dove Award Winning Artists from the 90's era? Well they are set to sing at the "Celebration of Change" Concert January 17th 2009 at Constitution Hall in Washington, DC, as part of President-Elect Barack Obama's inaugural celebration. The pair will share the stage with GRAMMY Award winners Regina Bell and John P. Kee, the Rev. Al Sharpton and former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell.
"It's incredible to be a part of the inaugural festivities," says Angelo in a recent press release. "I hope that all Americans will get behind our new President and pray for his success. I'm excited for this nation."
Married now for 16 years and with seven hit albums to their credit, Angelo & Veronica still produce music that is deeply personal and universally relevant.
In 1991, the Berklee School of Music-trained Angelo & Veronica signed their first recording contract with Benson Records, where they recorded four projects, Higher Place, A&V, Give Your Life and Da Tu Vida. They recorded Not Enough on Verity Records in 1996. In 1999, the couple signed with Harmony Records, a division of Sony, Inc., where they recorded Change. Angelo & Veronica have taken home three Dove Awards for their work.
The pair has sung background vocals on CDs by Michael Bolton, Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant, Kirk Whalum and others. Angelo & Veronica have made numerous television appearances, including BET's highly rated "Bobby Jones Gospel," and have toured around the world with top gospel artists.
In 2005, Veronica launched an organization called "A Voice for Women" to help women with self-esteem, self-worth and body image issues.
Angelo & Veronica are now set to release their new CD, Still in Love, a collection of songs celebrating marriage and family. Also in 2009, Veronica will also release Atrèvete a Soñar, her debut solo Spanish language CD, produced by Isaac Sakko, Richard Marcell and Angelo Petrucci.
