Angelis is a British classical singing group created by
Simon Cowell. It was initially formed in early 2006 and was made up of six children, who were then aged between 11 and 14. The children were discovered during nationwide auditions led by Ron Corpand from recommendations and contacts with some UK choirs, including the Royal Scottish National Orchestraand New London's Children's Choir.
eponymous debut album was released on 6 November, 2006. It sold over 350,000 copies and reached platinum status. The group members received a platinum disc on GMTV.cite news | last = Townsend | first = Ian | title = Singer Amy 'goes platinum' on TV | work = Bishop's Stortford Citizen | pages = | language = English | publisher = | date = 2006-12-25| url = http://www.bishopsstortfordcitizen.co.uk/mostpopular.var.1088975.0.singer_amy_goes_platinum_on_tv.php | accessdate = 2007-01-02] In early 2007 Simon Cowell fired the six children partly as a result of complications with a planned overseas tour. He now plans to relaunch Angelis in late 2008 using the London Capital Arts Childrens Choir.
