Singing since she was a child in the church her family headed out to every Sabbath morning, Angel-Monique learned early on how to not only carry a tune, but deliver the word of the Lord through song. Today she’s taking a leap into her music career with her debut album, "The Music in Me" including hit singles "Nothing Without You", "Back to You", and "Higher".
Since birth, Clinton “Hillel” Cornish II has been surrounded by music. Originally from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, he and his musically inclined family eventually relocated to Missouri City, Texas. Before long, Hillel learned how to play the piano and he also began singing. Although he lost interest in playing the piano, singing remained a big part of his life for the years to come. He gained experience as a singer through his church choir and with the prestigious Houston Children’s Chorus. By the time Hillel had made it to the 6th grade, he had developed a passion for also playing the saxophone, which led him to perform at various churches, concerts, and events, during middle school and high school. While mastering the saxophone, Hillel spent his time away from school at the Summer Jazz Workshop, under the directorships of Ronald Thornton of Willowridge High School and Conrad Johnson Jr. from Kashmere High School. Even though he had his saxophone stolen twice, he refused to give up his love for music and formed Melodics, a 6 man acapella group, which was formed after his mother enrolled him in Gary Job Corps.
Following the Lord's lead, Hillel began singing at various events in his surrounding area, that included a performance of an acapella arrangement of the Air Force Melody at The Alpha Awards in Washington D.C.. Adding another accomplishment to his resume, Hillel graduated from Gary Job Corps and soon after moved back to South Florida. Though it was hard to start from the ground up, he found inspiration in a saxophone given to him by his father as a birthday gift. God had planted a seed of passion in Hillel and that seed grew into Gospel music. This passion has allowed him to play at events all around the state. He even joined the group Sensere just as they kicked off their tour and released their first album, Soul of Future Worship Vol.1. They have opened for artists such as Isaac Carree and Mary Mary. They have even ministered at Shirley Caesar's church and been featured on The Bobby Jones Show, The 700 Club and TBN. Sensere was also the first Gospel group to open for the event, Jazz in The Gardens. By 2009, Hillel had formed a second group called Brothas and together they released their album Brothahood. This and his other past experiences have made it possible for Hillel to flourish as a Jazz musician. Not only has he set up a successful future for himself and his family, but most importantly, he has used his talent to guide others on their journey to be closer to the Lord.
