Oksana Angel is a singer, spiritual guide and the creator of Kingdom of Angels and the film Unconditional Love; here is a link to her website:
Q: What is the theme of Kingdom of Angels?
A: The Kingdom of Angels is a Musical “user-friendly” guide to my interpretation of the spiritual world through my personal experiences as a spiritual guide. I’ve decided to use music (the universal language) to convey how the average person can “tap into” the realms of pure spiritual joy, celestial beauty, compassion, kindness and unconditional love to bring them to a place of understanding.
Q: What inspired you to create it?
A: After years of research and experience in these topics, my inspiration was the first song “Unconditional Love” I recorded with my producer Anthony Meyer (songwriter/producer for Mitchel Musso, Kaya Jones, Jeff Timmons)
Q: When will we be able to see your reality show?
A: We are currently in post-production with the reality TV show “The Kingdom of Angels”. The first episode is dedicated to my creative work on the song “Unconditional Love”. My producer and I show our viewers the making of the record from an idea to the final product. In our discussions we touch upon various spiritual subjects as the creation of the song provoked us to contemplate on deep philosophical matters of meaning of life, value of human life and the role of the spiritual realm in our evolution. It will be posted online in the next few weeks followed by a worldwide release of the song on iTunes.
Q: What makes your family worth watching?
A: The family is an imaginary one! A “fictional take” (if you will) In the subsequent episodes I’d like to introduce a magical element to “The Kingdom of Angels” TV show. It will illustrate the life of a medieval (fictional) family, celestial beings and divine creatures of the Kingdom.
Q: What is the most common misconception we American’s have about Russia?
A: Perhaps, the myth that Russians are a bunch of “strict communists” living in a “strict, black and white” country. When, in fact they are just like Americans in many ways… Creative, loving and hopeful to see about a better, united world free to personal expression.
Q: What kind of training do you have?
A: I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music (Voice/Piano). I also had operatic vocal training by renowned singers of Russia – Anatoly Postnov (opera coach) and Alevtina Korshunova (Pop vocal coach)
Q: Who are some of your musical influences?
A: I love listening to Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, Enya, Madonna, Enigma, Evanescence, Sarah Brightman, Sade.
Q: What is the film Unconditional Love about?
A: Unconditional Love, a Medieval Story is a movie about extraordinary love between two souls that reincarnate on Earth lifetime after lifetime to be together. Only after a series of such returns to Earth in a human form, the two spirits finally attain the bliss of oneness. The movie revolves around these two characters and their timeless unconditional love for each other that keeps being tested until they enter the Kingdom of Eternity together.
Q: What role do you play?
A: I have not picked a role yet… Most likely, I will play the Angel of Love who sings love songs in this movie-musical.
Q: What is the difference between traditional religion and spirituality?
A: Spirituality goes beyond the traditional boundaries and rituals of the traditional religion, I think. I was raised in an Orthodox Christian society where religious rules and laws were confining and depressing. I do not favor or promote any particular religious views in this film. I believe that ALL personal interpretations of “God” are true and valuable as long as the individual accepts him/her as their “higher being”. This movie is about Unconditional Love towards all living beings, the entire God-created Universe.
