Monique Amado / Bio

Monique Amado was born in Berlin, Germany and is of German and Portuguese/Cape Verdean descent (that's descent, not dissent; the latter came later). Her family moved to the United States when she was 4 at which time she started training for professional dance, then started acting. As a teenager, U2 woke her up to a suffering world and made writing music and making the world a better place seem possible...and of course, the best place to begin making the world a better place is within, so she tries to work out what goes on inside her (and around her) through music, writing and creativity. Being vibrantly alive whether in pain or sorrow has been the greater part of her existence, as well as sustaining a childlike wonder at the beauty of the world though it can often seem clouded by darkness.

Monique writes from her deepest passions and longings -- God, love, peace, truth, compassion, wonder, hope and healing. Committed to oppressed animals and humans, she hopes to inspire people to awareness and awakeness.

But she is also quite happy if she can just bring someone a sense of peace, calm, and/or hope.
