But it all began as a way just for Monique and I to sing to God, and to sing to each other.
In the face of the commercialization of music, there is something powerful about a project such as The Welcome Wagon. At its core, it is the husband and wife team of Vito and Monique Aiuto. Vito is a Presbyterian minister and pastor of Resurrection Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn, and Monique is a designer and visual artist. Needless to say, they didn’t start out with the idea of making an album. In fact, neither one of them were all that musical. What they loved, however, was the way that songs allowed them to express their faith in God together.
