Singer Mona Gonzales has officially released her debut single, “Always Remember.”

“When I wrote the song, I was in front of the big mirror in a studio, and I was down, and when I look at myself [and said], ‘Mona, you’ve come this far. You’re training now, imagine. So be grateful and always remember all the hardships and use it as a positive energy and share it with everyone,'” Mona continued.
