LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) Angelica Cob-Baehler, 47, veteran record executive, died after a battle with cancer Nov. 21, according to Billboard.

Cob-Baehler, aka “Geli,” was a well-loved figure in the music industry, having worked at Columbia Records and Atlantic Records, among other stops during her 25-year career. She is credited with championing an unknown Katy Perry as well as acts like Stone Temple Pilot, John Mayer, System of a Down and 30 Seconds To Mars. She was instrumental in recruting Perry to Capitol Records and played an A&R role in Perry’s first album, One of the Boys, as well as the followup, Teenage Dream, and the two remained close until Cob-Baehler’s death, according to Billboard.

“Angelica was a consummate professional,” Jason Flom, now head of Lava Records, said in a statement. Flom hired Cob-Baehler at Virgin REcords in 2005. “She had an uncanny ability to recognize talent and a gift for helping artists reach their greatest potential. I know Angelica as the person who believed in Kid Rock when few others did and she worked tirelessly to help transform into a superstar. Angelica was the person who was responsible for bringing a then unknown performer named Katy Perry to Virgin Records. But what I will always remember about Angelica was her kind and gentle spirit. For even though she was strong and tough, she never lost her cool and she had a tremendous positive impact on  my life and on the lives of countless others.  Rest in peace, Angelica. You are gone too soon, but you will never be forgotten.”
