"In this age of carefully crafted personas that often seem narcissistic and contrived, it's refreshing to come across an artist who is equal parts musician, poet and the friendly neighbor next door. Honest and articulate, talented and true to her faith, Kelly Ann Monahan is the real deal. What you see and hear is what she's about - soulfulness, sincerity, and a willingness to share her journey with the world. Having known Kelly Ann for many years, through our friendship and our shared careers in broadcasting and music, I can vouch for her courage and perseverance in the face of physical and emotional adversity. Her talent as a musician, motivational speaker, and advocate for healthy living are an inspiration. "
- Veteran broadcaster and musician Bob August

(Emcee Testimonial ) "Kelly Ann delivers as expected. Her ability to follow a script kept our pageant flowing smoothly and on-time. But her ability to ad lib through the unexpected changes that were not in the script is what gave our event that professional edge. So glad she was available to emcee our event."
- Spencer Petty, State Director, 2016 Tennessee Miss Amazing Pageant
