Music feeds the soul...that's what Marsha would say when she's asked about the importance of music in her life. Starting at an early age with choral music performances, competing and winning a voice scholarship at the college level, Marsha has always been a performer. Born and raised in Atlanta, Marsha got her start in the local church, directing church choirs and singing with her family. Her participation in local pageants like Miss Atlanta and Miss Black Atlanta presented opportunities to perform with notables like The Freddie Cole Trio and the Tommy Stewart Orchestra. Her next opportunity came after answering an ad for a local group, Eclipse, who were major players on the cabaret scene in Atlanta. This four girl ensemble performed cabaret, jazz, pop/rock, R&B and gospel to thousands of Atlantans on a weekly basis. With Eclipse, Marsha performed at the Picolo-Spoletto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina, opened for The Letterman, background vocals for Little Anthony, performed at magnificent corporate galas and prestigious venues like the Greenbriar Resort, West Virginia and other resorts along the East Coast and Harvey's Resort & Casino in Lake Tahoe, on the West Coast. Working with this 4-girl ensemble gave Marsha the opportunity to work with others on Atlanta cabaret scene like Robert Ray, a veteran Broadway and cabaret performer. After working with Ray, she became a regular in several of his corporate and theatrical productions. Marsha was cast as one of 3 vocal performers for an extraordinary musical review, "Johnny Mercer - Too Marvelous for Words", also produced by Ray. Still enjoying success today, this show continues to play throughout Georgia and to sold-out audiences at the prestigious Spoleto-Festival in Charleston, N.C. Marsha's invitation for a one-woman show at the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in Macon, Georgia needless to say was also a milestone and the wave continued with an arousing performance with the Atlanta Lyric Theater's production of Jerry's Girls at the Robert Ferst Center last February. When it's not cabaret or theater - it's jazz, blues, classic R&B and gospel as lead female singer for Atlanta's premier band, Uptown Entertainment Band (UEB) who you will find only at Atlanta's finest events and corporate affairs.
