Monique Donnelly began singing before many young children learn to speak. At the bright young age of one-year-old, her mother started taking her and her two older sisters to sing at local churches. Her presence and gifted vocal talents were immediately evident, leaving no doubt in the minds of her listeners as to what her calling would be.
Monique’s professional career began at age eight, with kid’s album recordings, national commercials, and projects for well-known companies such as Disney, Mattel and Kawasaki. She began touring with children’s artist Mary Rice Hopkins, and later joined the young Gospel group All God’s Children (AGC), produced by Lou Adler and Maxi Anderson. She later sang on such albums as Maranatha’s Grammy Award-winning A-Cappella Kids.
Upon entering Azusa Pacific University to study Vocal Performance, Monique continued to sing professionally and was hired for national commercials and numerous film and television soundtracks. Monique demonstrated her vocal talents on various projects for famed composer Danny Elfman, including the feature film A Nightmare Before Christmas. To date, Monique has recorded on over fifty feature film scores, with such composers as John Williams, David Newman, Randy Newman and Trevor Rabin. A few of her recent projects include soundtracks for the films Ghostbusters, Goosebumps, and Zootopia. Most recently Monique performed with composer Danny Elfman for his Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween performance at the Hollywood Bowl.
A seasoned professional, Monique’s career continues to grow as more and more industry professionals are introduced to her vocal talents.
