Angelita Esperanza

Angelita Esperanza’s show at The Duplex reminded us of the simple reality that, if you break through your inner walls, good things await you. The backdrop of her journey to The Duplex stage, however, was far more roundabout than I would have ever imagined. Coaxed lovingly by a myriad of supporters, including supremely talented accompanist Brandon James Gwinn, Esperanza shined as she moved through her show and remained true to the title, offering “no apologies” as things clicked song after song.

After moving eight times in her first six months, she’s now made it to five years. Part of that longevity was because her family always supported her singing, and she performed a song that she used to sing to her favorite aunt, with whom she shared her birthday. It also happens to be in Tagalog, a language of the Phillipines, “Sa Ugoy ng Dayan” by Aiza Seguerra. 

I can only hope for good things from this talented performer, who also picked up a guitar for a few songs and strummed cleanly. Her ending number, Cyndi Lauper’s  hit, “True Colors,” provides the most fitting message to take away: “Don’t be afraid to let your true colors show.
