Ms. Angela Ray is an enthusiastic, conscientious, passionate, and exemplary English Literature and Vocal Music scholar. She recently graduated with her Master of Arts in English Literature from the University of Tulsa. She maintained a cumulative 4.0 G.P.A while balancing a Graduate Assistantship and the maximum full-time class schedule for Graduate students. And in Spring 2021, she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree with a Major in English Literature and a Minor in Vocal Music Performance. As a singer, Angela's distinct operatic tone as a Soprano adds a special nuance to her singing. Angela enjoys helping others through her English Literature skills. Through her GA ship as a TA, she taught Undergraduate college students as a Writing Consultant, Workshop leader, and Writing Instructor. She has experience in editing, working as a Graduate Assistant at the James Joyce Quarterly Academic Journal at The University of Tulsa. Angela loves to create innovative and creative ideas through research. Most recently, Angela put her passion for creating on display for her Master’s Thesis project, “The Power of Storytelling in Black Women’s Music: The Origin of Storytelling,” where she presented the unique intersection between Black women’s voices in music and literature. Angela also incorporated her passion for singing into her project with a Commentary Concert, which included a sample of her research on the impact of Black women’s voices in American literature and music on America’s history, where she presented her scholarly research capabilities and her singing talents with four songs, “The Wind” by Mariah Carey (1991), “My Lord What a Morning”  (1927), “Good Morning Heartache” by Billie Holiday (1946), and “Summertime” from Porgy and Bess (1934).  Angela is currently taking some time to relax and is looking for a career to exercise her talents within the Tulsa community and hopes to eventually publish her Master’s Thesis.
