Ms. Monique, the sultry siren who’s been burning up stages on the Soul and Blues circuit, has given her market a facelift. After decades of legendary soul and blues icons mirroring the beloved images of the bringers of Black folklore, Ms. Monique the apparent heiress to the soul and blues throne brings a fresh new persona to the Diva role amongst her contemporaries. Her 2005 Debut Album Soul Sessions Chapter I became a classic soul favorite and has brought audiences to their knees with her smooth, purist R & B sound, reminiscent of the R & B legends Gladys Knight and Mavis Staples. The messages brought forth by her musical content, brings current the nostalgic sounds of forward expressionists Betty Wright and the edgy Millie Jackson.
While artist like Mary J Blige, Beyonce, Anthony Hamilton, and Joss Stone have all made they’re mark in today’s music market Ms. Monique has carved out her own niche as well. She is a true story-telling singer/songwriter that believes in keeping it real in her music.
Ms. Monique’s youthful glow, and blinding sexiness brings us all to our knees as the fans of this musical genre are getting younger and younger and her inherited Classic Soul and Blues wisdom seems to fuse the young with the old, the Black with the White, broadening her audience they way very few can.
Fans of Ms. Monique have been eagerly anticipating the official passing of the Soul and Blues torch wondering when she would take autonomy of this musical platform. As a perfect marketable choice and a fan base that has reached worldwide status, Ms. Monique sighs, “Well, it is wonderful to be thought of in that way. Who wouldn’t love to be this face of what they’ve put they’re heart and soul into. But for now, I am enjoying pleasing my fans on the road, doing what I love to do. That’s gratifying.”
Ms. Monique, who has been enjoying on-going success with the release of her new release “TONITE". An up tempo club banger that has already begun to spread like wild fire on the circuit. She is obviously blending classic music with mainstream marketing elements. The show is said to be a refreshing new spin of one of the most classic genres of music
