At the age of two, Monét started to sing, and her mother, being classically trained, understood Monét's gift and nurtured it to maturity. Tragedy struck the lives of Monét and her family after being devastated by two major hurricanes - Katrina and Wilma in 2005. The aftermath of the storms rendered the family homeless and ultimately evacuated them to a new coast. To get through these tough times, the family formed the troupe, Children of Zyan, and began to street perform for food, gas, clothing and motel money.
Monét not only found music to be a comfort but also a life preserver for her whole family. Monét was born in Miami, Florida, raised for most of her life in California and currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina. She lives with her mom, stepfather, two sisters and one brother who also are performers. 1
