Monica is a Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum artist, actress, philanthropist and entrepreneur. She was born and raised in Atlanta and began her career at just 12 years old. She is the youngest woman ever to have two back-to-back number one hits on Billboard’s R&B chart, with her 1995 debut album, “Miss Thang.” She is the first artist ever to have number one Billboard singles over the span of three consecutive decades, which puts her in the elite company of history-making superstars such as Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, James Brown and Marvin Gaye.
