Miss Money: Urban music producer/vocalist living wit Muscular dystrophy - Genre: Rap, R&B Gospel DJ
|Money was diagnosed with myotonic
muscular dystrophy in the fall of 2004.
The rare genetic disease affects 1 in 8,000 but Money has kept an upbeat attitude and continues to produce, dj and sing regularly. She has used the diagnosis as a motivational message of faith and Christ although at first, neurologists were weary. Money states, "On Sept. 10, 2004, the doctors told me to throw away my career. On Sept. 10, 2005, God blessed me to attend the world premiere of my film debut at the Toronto International Film Festival...a year to the date. My message is simple - muscular dystrophy is not the end. In my case, its been the threshold of my dreams and maybe with music I can spread that joy is something the body can't contain." In 2006, Miss Money's theme is "Walking in Faith".

|Money is a believer in hard work and uses negativity to fuel her grind. She states, "My career is straight forward. I work and I don't gripe. I spent 5 years at Berklee and 3 years singing karaoke. That's 8 years outside of an industry that never wanted me. I spent those 8 years working and learning before I even considered doing this seriously and I know now that those were good choices. No one wants to take the long road to success anymore...I don't mind. I used those eight years to go to lectures, learn how to wire studios and route signals. I'm glad I did it." The Berklee tradition continues in Money's career as she recently accepted an invitation to become an Alumni Adviser for Berklee's Career Network.
