3 quick questions . . .
with Courtney Anne Mitchell
Last edition, we interviewed American actor/singer Corey Feldman. More recently, Feldman has been putting his creative energies into Corey’s Angels. Corey’s Angels is said to be “a full-service management, development and production entity, which also specializes in large-scale private events and concerts.”
Corey’s Angels has previously produced music videos, TV pilots, a double album and a ten episode “talk/variety show”. The Angels have been seen in the motion picture Body High, the CW TV program LA Rangers on the CW and are presently shooting an episode of a show on the ABC Network.
According to Feldman, the Angels were chosen on the basis of a “triple threat combination of talent, looks, and heart” and each one has all these traits. Courtney Anne Mitchell was the first official Angel following the start of her career as a Playboy model.
Mitchell is also said to be “a world-renowned DJ following her initiation as the first of Corey’s Angels. She has performed across the country and her pre-angelic resume includes multiple appearances at the Sundance Film Festival and—as “DJ AC”—she has performed at numerous “upscale private events” for such celebrities as James Franco, Jenny McCarthy, Skrillex, Donny Wahlberg and Hugo Boss.
Mitchell has also provided backing vocals on the cut “DUH!” (Done Under the Halo) from Feldman’s new album. We caught up with her while gearing up for “The Ultimate Corey Feldman Party” which will feature the debut of the newly formed all Angel band slated for June 12, 2015.
Here are the 3 quick questions asked of Mitchell:
1. You’re in Corey’s Angels now as we know. This is not, however, your first foray into music though. So the question is can you describe the first paid gig you had and if so what did it feel like when you realized you wanted to do this for a living and were actually getting paid?
Mitchell: I started playing with Corey and then with all the attention that created, I quickly escalated to performing for other events. The first paid event I can remember playing was for Sundance at the Fener Lodge, but again that was with Corey. The first high profile event I played without Corey was for Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg in Dallas, Texas. There’s nothing quite like getting paid to do what you love, I feel very lucky and blessed.
2. Corey’s Angels aside, do you think in general being an attractive woman in the music helps or hurts you and why?
Mitchell: It helps to have beauty to market your talents, whatever they may be. People tend to pay more attention to a beautiful woman; it’s just the way it is.
3. What’s next for you and the ladies in the band?
Mitchell: Bonnaroo!! We are all very excited and gearing up for the show. Then we will be doing Corey’s birthday show shortly after that. Then who knows, world domination I suppose.
So there you have it, boys and girls, 3 quick answers from Courtney Anne Mitchell. Hopefully, you found these 3 quick questions entertaining and interesting.
