Marking her comeback with the launching of fourth album “”, Monica sure has prepared everything possible to once again soar to the spotlight that had embraced her even before she turned twenty years old. To reach that goal, a list of schedule has been arranged neatly for her to carry out following the release of the album, the first being TV appearances on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” both set to be aired on October 9, 2006. The rest of the month will be spent through a number of live performances around several U.S cities, including those on WLLD Last Damn Show in St. Petersburg, Florida on date 21 and PWR Powerhouse Concert in New York City four days later. Entering November, there will be gigs on KXJM Show in Portland, Oregon and KBXX Car Show in Houston, Texas slated to be held on date 3 and 5, respectively.
Lauded for her incredible vocal chords, Monica was born to Atlanta freight company's mechanic named M.C. Arnold Junior and Marilyn Best, a former church singer and Delta Air Lines customer service representative, on October 24, 1980 in Oak Park, a division of Atlanta, Georgia with full name Monica Denise Arnold. Her passion for music has been flourishing ever since she was still merely a toddler, judging from her eagerness to perform in public at Jones Chapel United Methodist Church at age 2, so it was not really surprising to later see the girl touring as a singer in the gospel choir Charles Thompson and the Majestics by the age of 10. Through the troupe, she then was able to hone her flair effectively which delightfully led her to win some local singing competitions during her early teens.
