About Joel and Monica

“Singing siblings living in Orlando,” Joel and Monica Ortiz take to YouNow to stream their sweetly sung versions of everything from the Backstreet Boys hit “I Want It That Way” to Alessia Cara’s “How Far I’ll Go” from the Disney film Moana. Monica often strums the acoustic guitar while older brother Joel sits beside her and sings harmony. They began 2016 by collaborating on an a cappella cover of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” with fellow YouNow star singer David Juarez of the @JuarezTwins. They ended the year with nearly 120K YouNow fans and well over 5M views.
