Bio

Rita Angel Taylor

"Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved." ― William Jennings Bryan

As an immigrant from Fortaleza, Brazil, one of the most dangerous cities in the world, 13-year-old Rita Angel Taylor is the embodiment of "choice" and "achievement!"

At age three, Rita was discovered by a talent scout at a Starbucks in Dallas, Texas. Rita became a successful child model for three years until JCPenney photographers encouraged her to pursue acting.

At age six, Rita moved to Los Angeles, California, and booked her first audition as a guest-star on Nickelodeon's "Sam & Cat" starring Ariana Grande. Inspired by Ariana to pursue music, Rita quickly learned piano and guitar and moved to Las Vegas where she became a successful street performer on the world-famous "Fremont Street Experience" for two years. At age nine, Rita returned to Los Angeles to pursue careers in both acting and music.

At age 10, Rita co-wrote her first song, "For My Girls," a teen pop song about the value of girl camaraderie through the trials and tribulations of growing up to become Women of the World. After donating the use of her song and all proceeds to CARE.org for their International Women’s Day campaign, Rita officially released the song in March 2019 when she was 11. As a result of her song’s girl empowerment message and her philanthropic work with CARE, Rita made her national musical debut on GMA’s Strahan and Sara later that same month. Rita is proud to be the youngest ambassador for CARE which gives her the opportunity to give back and fulfill her passion of helping underprivileged people around the world like her extended family in Brazil.

Today, at age 13, Rita’s music genre has evolved into Urban-Rock and Latin-Pop for the young adult and adult markets. She occasionally performs live at select venues across the USA and abroad, and is expected to release more original music in 2021. Rita’s music projects haven’t dampened her enthusiasm for acting. She’s writing her first screenplay, and her credits now include multiple TV guest star roles and commercials, and two prior TV series-regular roles.

Rita is home-schooled to accommodate her busy schedule. Now in ninth grade, her two favorite subjects are math and history. Rita cherishes the time she spends with her family and friends. As one of the first Brazilian kids to find success in the USA entertainment industry, Rita has instilled hope in Latin kids all over the world who wish to pursue the American Dream.
