Early life[edit]

Quinto was born on November 26, 1989 as the only daughter of Pop Quiros and Rosemarie Susan Mabao. Mabao initially wanted an abortion as she felt that she could no longer continue to be a mother while being in an abusive relationship with her father. Her father's aunt, Sylvia Quinto, however convinced her not to and instead offered to raise Angeline. After Mabao gave birth to Quinto, she gave up her parental rights to Mama Bob and fled while her father left for another family. Growing up in Sampaloc, Manila, Quinto was already aware that she was adopted and often kept in touch with her biological father however she never met her mother. She was eventually reunited with her mother twenty three years later in 2012.[3][4] She participated in several singing competitions in her town, but lost most of them. Despite her failures she still pursued her dreams and continued to compete in singing competitions. She would even sneak out of the house to join competitions. Then came a night of a very special night where she won 3 different competitions in just one night. Her grand mother was so proud when she won Php7,000 (US$165) and she even cooked a delicious dinner for her grandmother.

Angeline was a finalist where she competed with the grand winner Sarah Geronimo in a singing competition Star For A Night hosted by the Asia's Songbird, Regine Velasquez. She also competed with Mark Bautista now recording star, and Mau Marcelo later won as first Philippine Idol and became Philippine Diamond Diva.[5] Sharon Cuneta was one of the judges that night and the host of Star Power: Sharon's Search For the Next Female Pop Superstar.

She won the wildcard edition that gave her way to the Battle of the Champions. She then dubbed by the show as the Rising Star. Her contest pieces used in the show are I Don't Want To Miss A Thing, On The Wings of Love, What Kind of Fool Am I?, and On My Own.[7]
