Angelica Hale Drops New Song ‘Chapter One’ on ‘American Reject’ Soundtrack
America’s Got Talent Season 12 runner-up Angelica Hale has a new song out called “Chapter One,” from the soundtrack for the upcoming movie American Reject. Angelica is set to make her acting debut in the film, available April 12.
Angelica Hale Releases New Song for ‘American Reject’
The new soundtrack for American Reject features 14 tracks. Angelica’s song “Chapter One” closes the album, along with a radio version of the track. The song is an inspiring anthem about never giving up even when you think it’s over.
“Somebody’s gonna win, somebody’s gonna lose / You think it’s gonna scar, but it’s only gonna bruise,” Angelica sings on the track. “You may think it’s over, you may think it’s done / But it’s only chapter one.”
She’s not the only talent show contestant featured on the soundtrack. Rebecca Black, who appeared on The Four: Battle for Stardom in 2018, has two songs — “Feel This Forever” and “Lo Siento” with Michael Lynche.
Angelica Makes Her Acting Debut in the New Movie
It’s appropriate that Angelica is making her acting debut in American Reject, since the movie is all about coming in second place on a talent show. The film’s writer Kathleen Elizabeth Monteleone stars as Kay Montgomery, who was runner-up on a fictional singing show.
After her loss, Kay moves back in with her mom and has cameras following her around for the show. Black plays Bethany, the singer who beats Kay for the winning title. Angelica appears as Anna, a young singer Kay’s mom is coaching for a local competition.
American Reject was inspired by Monteleone’s own experience coming in fourth place on the talent show Grease: You’re the One That I Want! in 2007. The movie also stars Billy Ray Cyrus and The Greatest Showman‘s Keala Settle. It will be available April 12 on digital and on demand.
