Singer-songwriter Monique discovered her very large voice at the very young age of five, when her mother barged into her bedroom thinking she was listening to the radio instead of cleaning her room. Once Monique’s parents realized how talented she was, they immediately thrust her into choirs, talent shows, and vocal lessons. Monique hit the ground running and hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down yet!
Monique spent much of her school-aged years competing in local, national, and international adjudications and talent shows, and has even auditioned for the network television show ‘American Idol’ (making it to the final round of auditions) and The Voice (making it to round 3 of the audition process).
She has written songs for several artists, sang background for countless acts, Opened for Gospel greats Kirk Franklin and Maurette Clark, and has even sang background vocals on the latest album of Gospel Legend Shirley Caesar. Monique is a trained violinist that has played the violin for over 10 years, and her vocal capabilities span widely across a Myriad of musical genres.
Some of Monique’s many musical influences include Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Tamia, Brandy, (pretty much ALL 90’s female groups), Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt, Maroon 5, Nickelback, Etta James, Johann Sebastian Bach, and so many more!
Monique hails from the beautiful city of Saint Paul, Minnesota and although she has resided in several other states throughout her life’s journey, she is now and will always be proud to call the Twin Cities her home. She has been a part of many local acts such as the Lead singer of Sawyer’s Dream and a Soprano/ Alto in the Award-Winning Gospel group 'The Remnant'. She is currently the Lead vocalist of The Riverside Hitmen and travels throughout the State and country performing with many artists and musicians on stages ranging from laid-back outdoor festivals to Sports Stadiums, weddings, and corporate events.
