“The Limitless Voice” is a simple concept:
Learn the voice,
Study the style,
Conquer your limits.
In practice this is much easier said than done. However, Monica Lynk Anderson, the founder of ‘The Limitless Voice’, has developed a systematic approach to learning this concept. Monica believes that with talent and practice, any student can remove their vocal limitations and discover their unique voice no matter the musical style. Through technique exercises that delve into the world of support, resonance, placement, and tone, the foundation is learned first. Once these are established, the stylistic nuances of each genre the student is interested in learning can then be understood, applied, and manipulated.
Monica Lynk Anderson was raised just outside of Cleveland, Ohio. Born with the gift of song, Monica’s mother often tells the story of how Monica sang before she could even talk. While performing and studying classical and traditional repertoire, Monica supplemented her musical education by singing with community gospel choirs, vocal jazz groups and performing in various musicals.
After High School, Monica was awarded one of only four Full-Tuition scholarships in the country to study at the world-famous Berklee College of Music. Here she honed her skills and expertise in varying vocal styles, songwriting and arranging. It was here that she met her husband and long-time collaborator Jason. Together, they formed the group “Mo’J” and released the album entitled “Beyond Category” - a mix of styles ranging from Jazz to Latin to Soul and more. The album quickly garnered favorable reviews and airplay and has been sold in 6 continents and over 30 countries.
Throughout her career, Monica has been fortunate to share the stage with many well known recording artists including Roy Hargrove, Nicholas Payton, Herbie Hancock, Christian McBride, George Duke, Kevin Mahogany, Oleta Adams, André Crouch, Cyrus Chestnut, Jimmy Greene, CeCe Winans, and Will Downing, as well as perform on some of the world’s most prestigious stages in North America, Europe and Asia, such as the JVC Jazz Festival, Newport Jazz Festival, Atlanta Jazz Festival, the Blue Note in Japan and New York, the Kennedy Center in D.C., the Regatta Bar in Boston. Monica was also selected by the US Department of State and the Kennedy Center to be a Jazz Ambassador to North & West Africa in an effort to promote the furthering and awareness of the tradition that is “Jazz”.
As an educator, Monica has helped hundreds of students from preteens through adulthood achieve their vocal goals, harness their talent, and find their own style. Monica’s students have been accepted into regional and state choirs, received numerous lead roles in musicals, received music scholarships to top colleges and have found their way into the professional music industry.
