She later began playing the tenor saxophone because of its shiny appeal. She honed her skills further by not only playing in the marching band, but also the jazz band. In the late 80’s, Sweet Angel played alto saxophone at Libertyland in Memphis, Tennessee with the unit that played for the Elvis Presley impersonator, Andy Childs. Sweet Angel fluently plays over 15 different woodwind instruments.
