ShaKara Monique, is described as one of the most skilled, pure, well-trained, and well-rounded new talents to hit the Urban Contemporary Gospel music scene in the last decade.
Developing her grasp of music from before her mouth could even form words; music has truly become an import part of ShaKara Monique's life. The Detroit native learned how to write music at a very early age, by writing her first song at the tender age of 5 (five). As ShaKara has grown up, her parents (Jazz Artist Terry Tuck & Vocalist N’Kenge Tuck) have helped her to further develop her musical talents by allowing her to sing with various choirs and groups throughout her young life. With this deep love for ministering to the hurting hearts of people around the world, ShaKara Monique is striving towards her goal of writing for other artists in the industry.
ShaKara Monique truly has a deeply wrought passion for Praise & Worship, and with this passion rooted in God's word, she has served as Worship Leader at various churches across the US and will soon begin traveling the world leading and worshiping with God's people in a way that most people have never experienced.
ShaKara's debut CD, UN4GOT10 DESTINY released on her birthday March 21, 2013. The new album has mostly been written by ShaKara along with two of the most well respected Music Producers in the business, Joseph VanBuren III and Johnny Kyle of Jx2 Productions. Her singles entitled, “Destiny” & "Give You Praise" can be heard on numerous internet radio stations. ShaKara commented that "My goal with this new project is to reach those who are outside of the church walls, and I am so grateful to God for opening these new doors and I know there are greater things to come for me in the future".
