To say Janelle Monáe is unique is an understatement a severe understatement. While many other artists may only excel in one skill be it as a songwriter, a singer or a dancer Monáe tackles this trifecta with a confidence and a seemingly effortless ability to amaze. But none of this is a surprise once you learn the Grammy Award-nominated performer’s backstory. Originally from Kansas City, Monáe’s childhood was disrupted by the rough reality of a father with a damaging drug addiction. This caused the young girl to turn inward, creating her own world through her imagination a skill she transformed into an anchor for her creative outlets later in life.
