Monet, which means to be heard, is exactly what this DC Native is striving to do. Born and raised in SE Washington, DC, this artist is definitely no stranger to struggle. Growing up, her biggest influence was her mom, who worked to take care of her and her older sister, Brittany, all by herself, sometimes not having enough money to feed herself. For Monet, this is what pushes her today to succeed and follow her dreams. Music was always a major part of her life, but for so long fear has held her back from pursuing what really matter to her more than anything, and thats the music. I guess you could say that was the quiet before the storm because in 2013, and years to come you can be sure you will see this artist. Stay tuned.
