A handful of years ago Jonessa Monique was doing the local talent show circuit in Connecticut and a writer for the Hartford Courant nicknamed her “The R&B Angel.” According to Jonessa “it just kind of stuck to me.” Of course, there are no complaints of the title sticking as the Hartford native quickly went from local talent to national talent with an appearance on P. Diddy’s Making The Band 2. She just missed out on being in Da Band, which in some people’s opinion makes her more of a winner than the actual “winners,” but her music career was in full swing. This past month Jonessa released her first single, ‘Thinkin Bout U,” and many are “thinkin” 2007 will be the year she becomes a household name. As with any star on the rise you’re going to read about them here first, which is why this week I sat down with Jonessa to speak with her about her music, her Making The Band experience, and why she considers herself low maintenance.
