Best known to the general public for being one-third of Beyoncé’s background singers famously known as “The Mamas,” vocalist/songwriter Tiffany Moníque is ready to step out of the shadows with her debut EP “Nemesis.”

After wrapping up Beyoncé’s “I Am…Tour 2009” and recording her EP, Tiffany prepares to promote the project this summer.

“Tiffany’s voice has effortless strength, sass, seduction, and heart with a tone that puts you at ease,” said Beyoncé. “I am very lucky to have worked with her for many years and I am proud that she now has such a wonderful piece of work to share with the world.”

In an early rehearsal, after Beyoncé learned that all of the background vocalists and male dancers were parents, she jokingly referred to them as “The Mamas” and “The Papas.” “For the background vocalists, the name stuck,” said Tiffany. While working with Beyoncé, she has developed an international following and participated in both the 2007 and 2009 world tours. One of the performances from the 2007 tour, “Me, Myself & I”, featured The Mamas and gained Beyoncé a nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance at the 2009 GRAMMY® Awards. In 2007, she was also featured on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered radio broadcast of “What Makes A Great Backup Singer” for her knowledge and experience as a background vocalist.
