Talented. Charming. Beautiful. And fighting for a cause.
Monique Benabou is talented, motivated, beautiful, and has a strong base of support in Alameda, Ca., where she grew up. But this wasn’t always the case for the 29-year-old singer/songwriter.
As a teen, Monique was the victim of verbal and physical bullying by her fellow students. In her junior year of high school she got her GED and got out.
Those years are far behind her now; she is a strong advocate for anti-bullying foundations that help victims and build awareness around the issue. She wants to help youth understand that “bullying is not OK and it’s not cool.”
To overcome her personal hardships with bullying, Monique dug deep inside herself and stopped asking permission to be herself...and...Monique is amazing.
Her voice reaches deep, surfacing the emotions she feels so strongly. She’s developed her own style, and it had Megastar Fans raving as they propelled her all the way to the top five in the first global Megastar talent competition. Monique Benabou is a model for us all. Don’t let others define you. Define yourself.
MEGASTAR is the world’s first mobile talent competition, where contestants from multiple categories (Music, Dance, Sports, Extreme, Comedy, Magic, & Variety) will compete from around the globe for $1 million dollars (USD).
Unlike TV competitions like The Voice, American Idol and America’s Got Talent, Megastar winners are chosen by you, the fans (with support from celebrity judges like Usher), as you vote for your favorite Performers in the Megastar App.
