She is a powerhouse vocalist and one of few ‘new school’ class of female vocalists who can capture the definitive essence of traditional gospel and “church” music at its best. As soon as a single note is dropped from her mic, you know you are in for a musical experience in its most dynamic and pristine form. MONICA LISA STEVENSON is that vocalist who provides a commanding presentation and a life impacting spiritual encounter through every song she sings.
Monica Lisa has delivered two highly acclaimed and award winning projects. Her freshman album FINALLY…IN GOD’S TIME (2009) earned her two Stellar Award Nominations for Best New Artist and Traditional Female Vocalist of the Year. Her next album LIVE IN ATLANTA (2013) garnered the songstress the 2014 Gospel Blue Mic Award for Artist Of The Year and a 2015 Stellar Award Nomination. Monica Lisa has also captured two Atlanta Gospel Choice Awards for Best Female Artist in 2008 and Song of the Year in 2009.

She was also cast for an appearance in the Tyler Perry movie Madea’s Big Happy Family and TV series The Have and The Have Nots. Her touring territory expanded to international status when the singer toured throughout Switzerland and Italy in 2011.
The southern songbird performs a graceful balance of family, music and ministry while continuing to build and expand her career and personal well-being. During her own recent weight loss journey, Monica implemented the “Just For Me” (Health and Wellness) slogan and fitness challenges to encourage getting fit for the kingdom. These monthly challenges went out to her large social media following of supporters to inspire eating healthy, staying active, and being accountable for the temple God has given to each person.
Monica Lisa also launched her own non-profit organization Christmas In A Box. The year round campaign and community driven call to action collects donations to provide for families in need. Christmas In A Box mission is to make every day feel like Christmas.
Monica Lisa finds joy singing before audiences and serving in her community, but her true bliss is being the proud mother of five children and dedicated wife to husband Derrick Stevenson, who is also her musical director and producer. Monica Lisa is emerging as a dynamic artist and compassionate philanthropist who inspires something new and refreshing in everyone she touches.
