Since the very
day in Fall 1991 where I heard the first line sung by Monique, I've
been a dedicated fan of this extremely talentet girl! Just like then, I still
consider her to be the best female singer of this country. Simply the best, -
not untill this day surpassed by anyone else.
I saw her debut concert on 7.
May 1992, and have known her for 14 years now. If anybody deserves the title Diva
in Denmark, it is Monique (in the most positive meaning of the word).
Beside being a divne singer, she's the kindest, sweetest and most lovable person
you could ever imagine.
In 1995 I participated in the legendary TV broadcast,
Husk Lige Tandbørsten (hosted by Casper Christensen)
as Monique's superfan, and I've seen her live at stage a lot of
Monique invited me to her 30th Anniversary, but I couldn't
go, so I was very frustrated to know that at her 40th Anniversary I had 5 requests
for live photo-shootings! I picked one (Juliet Gough in Krudttønden,
and after that I headed for Tivoli, where 200 invited guests celebrated this very
special woman. So I managed to be there for the dessert.
Most importantly I
came in time to hear Monique's wonderful speach, containing many
words of wisdom, and her great performance with her musical partner, Søren
Sebber, who celebrated his 40th Anniversary as well. I shared a table
with a couple of artists and singers, among those, Susanne Palsbøll,
whom I had photographed a few weeks earlier (see here)
and I got some new contacts.
I made photos of several of the guests and
performers, but being at a private party, I owe the artists to be able to party
away from the spotlight of the media, so only photos of Monique
(who has kindly approved the photos to be published on this site) will be displayed.
