"The Next Quiet Voice is a brutally honest memoir of heartbreak and despair, coupled with glowing redemption and a rising from-the-ashes feel that has you cheering for the writer at every turn. I couldn't put the book down." (Todd Zalkins, author and award-winning filmmaker)
On her journey to near stardom in the music business, Monica Madrid wound up a broke, demoralized alcoholic. Through the twists and turns of a colorful life, she rubbed elbows with Prince, Rick James, and other artists and was in a musical battle with Tupac Shakur. She came close to fulfilling her childhood dream, but once it was stripped from her grasp, her path led to money, prestige - and broken relationships. Monica's story is one of loss, love, and redemption. Her quest for fame and fortune would turn into a passion for recovery, in which she would discover something she never wanted - spiritual freedom.
