Portrait Of: Ranchera Royalty Ángela Aguilar If there is a Ranchera Royal family, that is the Aguilar family. And Ángela Aguilar is the youngest heir. Her father, Pepe Aguilar, has sold over 12 million albums worldwide and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And her grandfather, Antonio Aguilar, recorded more than 150 albums which sold more than 25 million copies. Now it's Ángela's time. She is nominated for a Grammy for best regional Mexican album with her album "Primero Soy Mexicana." Ángela talks to Maria Hinojosa about being 15, singing on stage for the first time at the age of 3, and how she uses social media.
