Personal Bio

Sunkee Angel was born Alvin Butler on January 12th 1988. She was born in the capital of Alabama, Montgomery, where she spent the majority of her life. At a very early age Sunkee discovered that she could sing. By the time she reached junior high school, she realized that she wanted to pursue a professional singing career and she began to write and record music. Although Sunkee, Alvin at the time, was tortured and picked on throughout her adolescent years, this did not stop her determination for becoming the star she knew she would be. As long as Sunkee could remember, she attended her family’s church where her grandfather was the pastor. As Sunkee attended church, she was taught to believe that homosexuality was a sin and it appeared to be the greatest sin that could ever be committed. After learning that being homosexual (at that time) was a sin in God’s eye sight, Sunkee begin trying to live a heterosexual lifestyle out of fear of not being accepted and being damned to hell. Being in fear of living in truth, this led to what Sunkee thought was a heterosexual male persona by the name “DIGIDOO” (pronounced DIGGIE-DOO). Digidoo was a male singer who would sing, dance and rap while shaking his butt probably better than most women. Even though Digidoo tried to have a heterosexual image, he still had very feminine ways, which made some people question his sexuality while others knew it was a fa├žade. After finally coming out, Digidoo thought he would be at peace with himself, but he still suffered with confusion because he still didn’t feel whole. As a child, all the way until early adulthood, he also struggled with inner feelings of being the opposite gender which was why he was in conflict with himself. This caused Digidoo to create a female comedian alter ego, Aunt T Jackie (pronounced Auntie Jackie), which made him feel more comfortable and almost whole. This persona somewhat fulfilled his vision as to what he felt his whole life. In 2012, Digidoo started to feel that it was time to leave Alabama because of the unacceptance of family and minor opportunities. He then relocated to Los Angeles, California to better himself and to feel more liberated. As Digidoo began to settle into Los Angeles, he began to find support within his community. Digidoo started to cross dress and began wearing make up the majority of the time because it made him feel more comfortable. He always had a problem with hair being on his face and as time progressed, it began to intensify. Digidoo was asked by a transgender woman to come to a support group and went. When he got there, he still identified himself as Alvin but the people in the room saw a woman and saw that he was struggling with his identity. He ended up leaving the support group in tears because he wasn’t ready to accept his true identity. He tried moving forward living as male while dressing as female and there was a constant battle because of religious trauma caused by family. He would see transgender women around LA and on social media and over time, this made him think more about transitioning. In 2013, Digidoo realized that he no longer wanted to live his life as male but didn’t know how he was going to gain the courage to do. Digidoo felt that he wanted to tell his fans and family that he wanted to transition because he realized that he was never male to begin with. Once he told his mother, she told him that if he was meant to be a woman, that’s what God would have made him. This began to drive a wedge in between their relationship because his mother didn’t approve of his “lifestyle”. As time went on, it appeared as though she tried to accept the transition; however, she could not let herself accept her child being transgender. Despite the fact of not being accepted by some family, he was led to research about gender dysphoria and realized that this is what he had been suffering from the whole entire time. In 2014, Digidoo began living life full time as female and no longer answering to Alvin, Digidoo, or the pronoun he. During this same year, he (now going by she) began going by the name “Sunkee Angel”. She started taking low doses of hormones prescribed by her medical doctor who also deals with many transgender women. Sunkee stopped and started hormones all the way up until 2017 when she began going full out taking hormones daily up until present. Also in 2017, Sunkee had her name changed legally from Alvin Butler to Sunkee Angel at the Compton courthouse. In 2014, Sunkee learned that she was HIV positive. Nevertheless she did not let this deter her, for she turned her tragic news into an inspirational music video entitled “I Am Not A Label”. After releasing “I Am Not A Label”, this opened the door for others to become open about their status and personal stories dealing with stigma and she became a powerful voice for the voiceless. Sunkee is also known for her exotic looks and electrifying dance moves. She has been seen on the comedy drama TV show “Glee” where the name of the episode was “Transitioning”. Sunkee is also rubbing shoulders with A list celebrities as she push herself into the mainstream as a transgender recording artist. Sunkee is a pioneer and is trailblazing the trans community and right now is the perfect time being that there are other transwomen finally getting their break to be seen. Sunkee is not only an advocate for the LGBT community but she is an advocate for all people because she believes that everyone should be able to live their lives shame free and without fear. Sunkee Angel aspirations in life includes being an accepted transgender recording artist getting the same amount of respect and visibility as any other mainstream artist; second, she wants to help the world see that you can live your life with HIV or any other disease without living in shame, guilt or stigma; lastly, she would like to be a beacon of light to provoke enlightening thoughts in the minds of the corrupted so that she can help free others allowing them to then think for themselves so that they can take off the expectations that has been placed upon them by others.
