Angélico Vieira (December 31, 1982 – June 28, 2011), whose full name was Sandro Milton Vieira Angélico, was a Portuguese actor and singer. He was a former member of the Portuguese boy band, D'ZRT.[1]

Vieira began his career when he was cast as the character, David, in the Portuguese soap opera, Morangos com Açúcar.[1] Simultaneously, he joined the boy band, D'ZRT, which achieved national attention.[1] Vieira appeared in several other television roles, including soap operas, during his career.

In the early morning hours of June 25, 2011, Vieira was driving from northern Portugal to Lisbon for the release of his new solo album.[1] Vieira was driving his BMW 6-series over 150 miles per hour in the southbound lanes of the A1 motorway near the Estarreja exit when his left, front tire burst at approximately 3:15 a.m., causing a one car crash.[1] Vieira, who suffered severe head and brain injuries in the accident, was taken to Santo António Hospital on Porto, Portugal, where he underwent surgery.[1] He died from his injuries on June 28, 2011, at the age of 28.[1]
