Moni's personality captured the attention of CoCo Wade during a mu- tual performance amongst the 33rd Annual KAZI Summer Fest in Austin back in August 2015. At the age of only 11, a bright eyed and bushy tailed Moni approached the industry leader with an open heart and a kin- dred spirit as to introduce herself and hand over her music. Inspired by Moni's confidence and passion for music, it was inevitable that we would soon follow her story. We could say that many different individ- uals led us to Moni—but the truth is...she introduced herself to us. Moni's cover of the angelic composition, “Heaven Was Needing A Hero,” appeared to be a genuine, very heartfelt and meaningful tribute to her belated grandmother Martha Paiz. Moni brought out her very best vocals while delivering this cover. Her range was absolutely awesome as this song exhibits her strengths. During her interview, the young vo- calists went on to elaborate in en- lightening us about her experience when performing tributes like this.
She explains that she often finds herself wanting to sort of break- down—but reminds herself that her grandmother is still with us and would be very proud. This she says, is what keeps her going. Moni re- joices in that her grandmother was always there for her while growing up. The singer often times acknowl- edged her by saying, “grandma you‟re my hero.” For this reason, the cover song tribute remains spe- cial in many ways.
Moni is mostly recognized for her music as an R&B singer. Neverthe- less, encompassed with a level of versatility in expounding upon her craft, she has began to explore a bit of pop and even hip-hop genres. Young Moni ignites new ambitions in the art of music. Tapping into her different creative sides has been refreshing for her, to say the least.
Through continual growth and progress stemming from Moni‟s tenure while working with manager and producer Todd Engle, owner of In- sanely Gifted Entertainment; songs we may listen to today have been tweaked and polished to his idea of perfection as to ensure that listeners are getting the very best they have to offer. Moni and her team had the liberty of recording her first music video, entitled “Just Give Me Five More Minutes.” It officially launched via YouTube and has a bit of a surprising factor in that it was recorded near the gravesite of her loving grandmother. While it may have raised a few eyebrows, man- ager Todd Engle stuck to the teams vision and developed a heartfelt treatment for what has turned out to be truly rewarding. Additionally, the music video for her raved single “Not Yet” remains in progress as to wrap up and launch real soon.
