INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Kambria Moncrief is a name you might want to remember. The Ben Davis senior is not only active on the Giants cheer squad, but she’s got a killer singing voice.
“It just changes my whole mood. Music just makes me happy,” said Moncrief. “It makes me think. It makes me push myself. It's just like I breathe it.”
“She is awesome,” said Ben Davis head cheerleading coach Lindsay Highberg. “She’s very contemporary. It’s really cool that she’s so invested at this young of age.”
Kambria, who has been singing since she was 3 years old, is a lover of old school R&B and writes a lot of her own songs. She was discovered during the Black Expo earlier in the summer and offered a record deal.
“I didn't believe him at first, because things don't just happen like that for people,” said Kambria. “I was just like this is going to be nothing, he's never going to call me back again, but I went there and it was a real studio. He had me record some stuff I had already written, and I was like this is like the real deal!”
She cites Beyonce and Michael Jackson as artists, whose careers she’d love to emulate.
