Born in Boca Raton, Florida, Montana Tucker began modeling at the age of eight. She quickly caught the attention of producers and directors nationwide, and started booking print work, commercials, music videos and TV appearances. By the age of 12, Montana was already a show-biz veteran with spots on E-Venture Kids, MTV’s Newlyweds, and even a couple Telemundo shows, among many others.
As Montana became a better and even more well-known dancer and performer, classes with Shane Sparks, world-wide competitions, and professional gigs began to take up more time in her busy schedule. She started out as a backup dancer for Ashlee Simpson and Ashanti, and quickly rose through the ranks even though she was much younger than her competition, to the point where she performed on MTV for Chris Brown’s ‘sweet’ 18th birthday party at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club.
Turn Her Up!
As Montana continued to shine, she yearned to step into the spotlight for good, and after working with famous vocal coach Betty Wright, she performed around Florida and then at huge sporting events like 2007’s Super Bowl VIP party, Florida Panthers and Miami Heat games, and the Hula Bowl. After opening concerts for dozens of famous artists, Montana’s big musical break came when she won a contest to be featured on the Step Up 2 The Streets Soundtrack. There, she met rapper Flo Rida, and they were determined to collaborate. The result of that pairing is the single, Turn It Up, which is sure to be one of the summer’s hottest tracks.
