Ashley Parker Angel BIO

Ashley was first launched to fame in the year 2000 on the hit ABC series "Making The Band" which chronicled the formation of a pop super-group. The now Diddy adopted franchise was originally the brain child of boyband guru Lou Pearlman, responsible for the formation of groups like The Backstreet Boys and *Nsync. "Making The Band" was the first reality show to be picked up by a major television network paving the way for countless reality and talent shows since. Plucked from tens of thousands of contestants, Ashley's talent and undeniable heartthrob appeal made him an obvious choice for the show's five part vocal group OTOWN. OTOWN experienced incredible success in just a short period of time, selling over 5.6 million albums, touring internationally and going on to be the first reality show cast with a 2nd and 3rd season. O-Town is most widely recognized for their number one smash single, "All or Nothing".

After O-Town disbanded, Ashley successfully made the transition into a solo artist, securing a major label deal on Blackground/Universal Records. At the same time Ashley was approached by MTV Networks and pitched a spin-off idea based on the success of "Making the Band".

The series called There and Back helped him shed his former boy-band image and highlighted his talent as a serious musician and songwriter. Capitalizing on the show's success, Ashley's first single "Let U Go" became an instant hit as the highest seling debut on Billboard's Hot 100 in 2006.

Combined with a successful summer tour with Ashlee Simpson and a number one video on TRL, it was clearly evident that Ashley Parker Angel was not just that kid from O-Town. Rumors are that Ashley is currently songwriting as much as he can while on Broadway and hopes to release new music soon. In Summer 2008, Ashley released a new song via Myspace called "Can You Handle It".

Following Ashley's summer tour, Ashley was offered the role of Link Larkin in the eight time Tony Award winning, "Hairspray" on Broadway. Ashley has received such an overwhelming response from both longtime fans and theatergoers alike, that he has been asked to extend his contract four times since his initial debut in the show. According to Angel, following his run in Hairspray he looks forward to using the experience to embark into the world of film and television. His immediate success as a leading man on Broadway is evidence that this is the correct move for Angel.

Ashley Parker Angel appeared in the 1999 direct-to-video movie Longshot along with the other members of O-Town as well as many other teen celebrities of the time.

He provided the voice of Alex in the Lunar series of video games on the Sega CD platform, the voice of the character Slick in the video game Popful Mail (also Sega CD), and made an appearance in the Sega Saturn game Magic Knight Rayearth as the voice of Ferio.

Parker had appearances in episodes of the MTV series Clone High and My Own. He also competed on the television program Celebrity Cooking Showdown, making the finals but not winning, partly because he lacerated his hand with a knife during the challenge.

BWW Reviews: WICKED at Paramount a Bit Flat but Still Wicked

I don't think many theater nerds need to argue the virtues of Stephen Schwartz's hit show "Wicked" currently playing at the Paramount Theatre. It's one of those shows that's widely and verbally loved by aficionados and general theatergoers alike. So when the tour comes through town it's bound to have the rich and powerful voices needed to blast those wonderful songs into the rafters. And this tour is no exception. But while this tour also boasts two wonderful leads who also manage some brilliant and layered storytelling in their characters, some of the supporting players felt lacking and flat in that aspect making this go around with the show not as awe-inspiring as past viewings.
