About Laura Nava

REALLY GOOD! Marilyn Monroe Mae West and Tina Turner Impersontations




Amazing performance & money well spent

By Kiersten Q. on July 28, 2013

I was out of town on my sweethearts birthday and wanted to do something special for him. Knowing he loves the Icon Marilyn Monroe and would be out at big club with friends I decided to look into a Marilyn Monroe singing telegram. I googled, found Gig Salad and filled out the form. I should add the event was only two days away. Laura contacted me the next morning and notified me she was available although not within my price range because she had to travel two hours each way. After calling her and hearing her enthusiasm, watching her video and learning what her performance entailed I couldn't resist and decided to go for it. She was fully engaged from the start and amazing! She personalized the performance and her communications with me from beginning to after were far beyond my expectations. I was so excited by the time of the performance I was sitting on pins and needles over 1,000 miles away. Several friends were texting me and sending me incredible pictures and the look on his face was fabulous. Everyone was blown away and said things like "You did great! You rocked his world long distance", "Hugh Success!", "Money WELL spent! He loved it!" and he did. He thanked me for an amazing birthday. It was a grand gesture he'll never forget and I've not regretted investing in for a moment. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH Laura!!!!

Ms. Laura Nava Was Fabulous as Marilyn Monroe!

By Gayle T. on March 31, 2013

It was indeed a blessing that I found Ms. Laura Nava thru the Gig Salad website as I was searching for a Marilyn Monroe or a Mae West or an Elizabeth Taylor to perform at our club's 70th Anniversary Luncheon, held March 23, 2013. The Luncheon theme was "Diamonds and Divas". Therefore, we wanted someone who was top notch when it came to impersonating one of those iconic "divas" who personified glamor and glitz. When I saw Laura's performance on the GigSalad website in her "Marilyn" personna, I immediately knew I'd found the caliber of performer desired for our event. In addition to being a quality performer as "Marilyn", Ms. Nava proved to be a joy to work with during our communications as we planned her arrangements to come to Kansas City. At the time we confirmed her appearence, she told me not to worry, that she had everything under control. While I was encouraged to here such a positive declaration, the proof was in the pudding. Ms. Nava delivered in spades!!!! She worked the event room in three classic Marilyn looks: the white pleated dress from the Seven Year Itch, the gold "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" gown and the iconic pink gown of "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" fame. Her set list for a 40 minute show, done in three sets, included such standards as: "What Ever Lola Wants" "I Want to Be Loved By You", "Boy From Impanema", "Come Rain or Come Shine"; "Fever"; "Do Right (Like Some other Men Do"); "Just A Little Girl from Little Rock"; "My Heart Belongs to Daddy"; "Hey Big Spender" and the fantastic finale of "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend". Ms. Nava was the talk of the Luncheon!! She was not only professional, but was most personable and mingled freely with and among the Luncheon guests. She brough the crowd to its feet. We thoroughly enjoyed her. My only regret is that the other guests did not get to fully appreciate the transformation that I got to see as Laura became "Marilyn". Ms. Nava made the investment necessary in makeup, hair,clothing and accessories to make you believe you were seeing "Marilyn" in all her diamond glory. And once she was attired as Marilyn,all the mannerisms and voice intonation that you would expect, were there. And she sang the songs -- no lip synching! In summary, if you want a top notch "Marilyn", Ms. Laura Nava is the person you need! We love her in Kansas City!!!

Laura did a great job with her Tina Turner impersonation. Her price fit our budget and she was very flexible with our needs on a short notice.

This client was a DELIGHT to work for! Accommodated me nicely and was prompt with payment and professional.

What a Great Show!!

By Mike on July 26, 2012

Laura was Fantastic! The theme of our program was to emulate an Old Fashion USO program and we knocked it out of the park! A large reason why it was such a success was Laura Nava's "Marilyn Monroe" She was professional, talented, energetic, and FUN!!!! I recommend Laura's services to anyone interested in a Marilyn Monroe impersonator....2 thumbs up!

I have worked with Laura Nava on several occasions, and am always in awe of her performance as Marilyn. She not only delivers the persona and personality of Marilyn, but she is a professional from start to finish. At an evening corporate event, Laura wore several outfits throughout the night looking more stunning in each one. She wooed the crowd with her rendition of "Happy Birthday Mr. President". The men and women absolutely adored her.
I am looking forward to working with her again very soon.

Response from Laura Nava:
