Here's from an interview with Angelina on Norwegian TV2,
Lørdagsmagasinet (The Saturday Magazine" April 5th, 2014:
"Angelina and her family have lived several years abroad, and she has
a special story she wants to tell us (...) When she is on stage she never wears shoes,
and the reason for this is an experience she had as a six-year-old,
when she and her family lived in the middle east.
There she met a girl who worked as a street vendor.
"...she said, how nice shoes you have. I asked, do you want them?
I gave them to her, and she said, thank you. And then I said, what is your dream?
She said, I want to be a doctor, but I can't. I said, you must never give up.
Then she said, I will pray for you, and you must remember me. That's why I am barefooted."
