With her unique style, original voice, and, captivating choreography, Money is ready to give us an example of what the future of music will be. Having already caught the ear of famed producer/songwriter Walter Milsap III and the biggest producer in music today Mr. Timbaland himself, Money is well on her way to show the world how a true visionary thinks. A California native, Money grew up in a musical family with both her father and sister looking to be future singers. Raised on everything from jazz to gospel, r&b to rock ‘n roll, Money’s biggest influence is Prince.
She first started singing at age 15, but was not satisfied with only one aspect of performance rather she was determined to become an all-around entertainer. As time went on, she decided it was time to follow her dreams and pursue a career in the music industry. While taking dance classes at the famed Millenium Dance Studios in Los Angeles, Money met choreographer Dave Scott (You Got Served, Stomp The Yard) and his partner, stylist coordinator Keisha Gamble. Both saw the limitless potential in Money and quickly became in charge of her artistic development.
Scott later introduced Money to the legendary Walter Milsap III, a meeting which would change her life forever. The name Walter Milsap III should sound familiar. A household name among musicians from all genres, Milsap has been creating, writing, and producing music for well over a decade. Having worked with Brandy, J. Lo, Alicia Keys, and Beyonce to name but a few, Milsap can recently be seen on Timbaland’s Shock Value album with a solo production of the track “Fantasy” featuring Money.
Milsap and Money were only in their 2nd week of recording together when they decided to come with a fresh and different sound to their next track hence "Fantasy" was born. Recorded just last February, Milsap took the song with him to a scheduled meeting in Las Vegas with Timbaland. Milsap played the track for Tim and right away Timbo wanted Money to fly out to meet with her. Impressed with her style, voice, and overral vibe, Tim asked her to be on his upcoming album Shock Value.
Before she knew it Money went from the very beginnings of her career to a having a full feature on one of the year's biggest album. Literally overnight, the industry, the press, and the fans alike were all asking themselves: Who is Money? So who is Money? When can we expect new music from her? Will she have an album out soon? All these questions and many more will be answered in time. Perhaps the greatest gift of any visionary is the shroud of mystery and anticipation. Breaking molds, creating new formulas, and proving that hard work really does pay off, Money is not rolling with labels rather she's creating her own mold.
