— Angel in Insecure
Angel Miguel Rivera (born October 24, 1997) was a recurring, later a major character and the deuteragonist to Simone on the television show STAR on Fox. He was portrayed by Evan Ross. In the episode Take It To Church, he married Simone Davis to keep her from returning to foster care after he was selected to go on tour and Take Three wasn't. In Dreamers, Angel found out from his mother, Paola, that he is an illegal immigrant and ended up getting deported. He has recently snuck back into the U.S. to be with Simone but has been struggling with racist attackers.
He first appears on Insecure when Jahil is fighting with his brother, because his brother owes him some money. Jahil drops his gun, and without knowing it Angel picks it up and points it at the both of them telling them to cut it out. His dad tells Jahil that if he want to take something then to take his useless nephew and walks out. Angel helps his uncle up.
Angel is playing a beat on his computer and his uncle says that it is really good. Angel says that he wants to go to Atlanta with his uncle to make music, but Jahil says no, and that's its to dangerous. He also tells him to make him a copy of the track so that he can take it on the road.
