Not shy to come forward, Hamilton Girls High school student Monica Orbe describes her voice as simply "awesome!"
Singing since she was newly out of nappies, the teen last year became a finalist in the popular Westfield shopping mall's Five Minutes of Fame competition with a knockout rendition of the song Halo, by Beyonce.
Monica says God is her "foremost" inspiration in life, followed closely by her tight knit family and, while singing and performing is a major passion, she aspires to be a doctor when she grows up.
