About Montressa L. Cunningham
Montressa L. Cunningham is an Atlanta-based recording artist, author, and entrepreneur. Also known as Mont’e Millions, Montressa was born and raised in Gainesville, Florida, where his passion for music was first ignited by his aunt and eventual mentor, Yvonne Jackson. An international blues artist herself, Montressa’s aunt leveraged her experiences opening for artists such as Bo Diddley, BB King, and others to teach her nephew the ins and outs of the entertainment industry.
These insights stirred up an unbreakable entrepreneurial spirit in Montressa and inspired him to pursue his own career path, no matter the challenges he might face. At just 13 years old, Montressa began his journey toward a career in music, having been taken under the wing of the Queen of Miami Soul and Sound herself, Ms. Betty Wright. As he continued to hone his singing and songwriting skills, Montressa lent his budding talents to various local artists, all while gaining his first experiences as a national performer. Now, several decades later, he has achieved more than his younger self could have imagined possible.
In 2007, Montressa L. Cunningham released his first EP, “My Life,” on an indie record label of his own creation, Life After Death Entertainment. This initial venture as Mont’e Millions was wildly successful, with his music getting played by over 90 local and regional radio stations and selling over 150,000 copies. Since then, Montressa has dedicated his time to creating new music, touring, and sharing his life experiences and passion for creativity with his fans through a number of mediums.
Holding Associate, Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral degrees in the arts, Montressa L. Cunningham is a well-rounded individual who uses his creative expressions to share the Gospel, inspire others to embrace who they are, and encourage them to use their personal authenticity to change others’ lives.
To further this mission, Montressa compiled his thoughts and life story into a book, Shattered Mirrors! Every Piece Matters! Published in 2015, this work was meant to reach those existing in places of brokenness, hurt, or abuse and show them how relying on God’s Word can shed light on why they lived through the traumatic events of their pasts, as well as how they can use those experiences to positively impact not only their futures, but others’ as well.

Cunningham serves as the President & CEO of King of Diamonds Entertainment, Inc.; a share owner of Divine Ink Entertainment, Inc. & Divine Publishing; Owner of Business Builders, a personal investment company; and is strategically involved in the management of several local businesses including A Million Bubbles Car Wash, Sheila’s Soul Food and Catering Company, as well as Sheila’s Hair Machine, Beauty Salon and Barber Shop.
