Monica: Still Standing

Life is a journey that leads us down various paths. And no one better can attest to that fact than R&B star Monica. Monica will be the first to tell you that her path in life has led her to some real turmoil and some real life pain. Monica will also be the first to tell you that through it all, she’s still standing.

Classy, beautiful, and talented are just a few words used to describe this sista who has touched so many lives with her music. Never the one to shy away from sharing her real life experiences in the hopes of helping others, Monica’s genuine appeal has never gone unnoticed and it’s easy to understand why the girl from “ATL” has amassed a legion of die-hard fans that truly love and support her.

Monica has indeed come a long way since the release of her 1995 debut album “Miss Thang.” With well over a decade in the music business under her belt, Monica continues to deliver great music that separates her from the rest.
