Many of us have dreams and aspirations of becoming a star or doing great things when we come of age. Those of us who have those dreams in our hearts will go on to accomplish them. There is not one true artist who has reached that point of success without a great deal of struggle.
Monà is my stage name, but my real name is Ramona Bailey. I am 25 years of age and have been interested in the art of music and entertainment since birth. My passion in life is to be expressive through song. I am a songwriter, and I have done some production work. Entertaining people, I feel, is what I have been put on this earth to do.
Entertainment, that word has so many different meanings for me. It's not just standing on stage and singing a song. It is every entity that is contributed to an artist's success. I want to have my hands on it all.
I have gone through a lot to get to the current stage of my career, but I know that this is not the end of the road. Walk with me as I continue on my journey. I am sure there will be many bumps and cracks in the road that will attempt to keep me from my true destination in life.
I will not fall. My voice is as powerful as a ray of sunshine. Like the sun, I am going to make sure I am seen and heard around the world.
Monà (Platinum Future Records)
From the Album "Lady Like Me"
The single: "When It Rains"
It rains much more in Seattle than it does in St. Louis, but Monà has put St. Louis on the map with this major rain maker! "Quiet Storm" audiences will eat up this soulful song. It has meaning and a great melody as well. "When It Rains" has a feel that will move you.
As I reflect on how the lyrics remind me of loves I lost, the music holds me like the magical force of an enchanted rain forest. To better explain the feeling this song gave me, let me say that although "When It Rains" does not sound like "Love Don't Live Hear Anymore" by Rose Royce or any of Brownstone's big hits, I can compare it because it has a sweet intoxication about it that is just as strong as the aforementioned. This song has feeling!
Monà sings, "the things you put me through makes me wonder what I saw in you. The slow erosion from my tears and emotions keep the Sun away from my heart because there's nothing but rain". She goes on, "you must be silly if you think I don't know that you played me for a fool. My heart has let go of all the pain, and nothing's the same except when it rains it pours".
Station after station will jump on this song, and before you know it, it will be raining everywhere!
