Erika was wonderful. My Dad loved it! She arrived within plenty of time to set up, etc.
She was on time! Great personality and performance. My team loved her. I will book her again!
Erika was incredible! Aside from all of the tactical details - being on time, responsive, and attentive, she also also has a very well prepared show, that is accompanied by the beautiful make up and costume. She was a natural in what she was doing, adjusting to the audience or the situation as needed. She was a pleasure to observe and was a lot of fun for the guest of honor and other guests.
Marilyn (aka erika) was fantastic! She really made our holiday party fun and even sang to a birthday girl in the crowd. If you're wondering whether or not to take the plunge, then don't think twice, hire Miss Marilyn Monroe.
We were so pleased to have Erika aka Marilyn join us at our charity benefit. With a crowd of more than 500 at one of the area's premier fundraisers, she was the consummate professional and a pleasure with whom to work. She was punctual, friendly, accomodating, flexible, and great fun. Pictures are still being passed around of guests posing with the starlet. We would highly recommend her to anyone for any type of event! She's talented and just lovely.
Erika performed for an audience of 100 guests ranging in age from 6 to 92. At my 70th birthday party she had 3 acts consisting of Madonna, Marilyn Monroe and Lady Ga Ga. She was just outstanding in every aspect - talent, personalty, costume and music. She was extremely easy to communicate with when going over the pre-performance details. She now has many new fans that are following her and cheering on her career.
Erika was wonderful! She is an outstanding singer and performer. She took the time to really understand the "behind the scenes" of the Birthday event. She came a day early to visit the location. The "younger folks in the crowd" really thought she was Marilyn Monore. I have seen several MM impersonators in the past few years, but Erika stands out as the BEST!
Erika was AMAZING! Her look is fabulous and she was on time (early actually!), a pleasure to work with, completely charming, got into the spirit of things and stayed for photos with guests etc. The birthday boy was beyond thrilled and we had a blast. We were just delighted - thanks for being a great sport and a fabulous entertainer! She really does look like Marilyn! Gorgeous woman and a great actor / singer!
Erika put on an amazing show, from her singing to her mingling with the
guest. She took pitures with everyone having all Marylin Monroes manerisems down, a born natural. I have given many parties over the years and was told I out did myself with the entertainment. This was a suprise 60th birthday party for my husband. Memories were made for him as well as our guest. Thats what life is about making great memories. Thanks again for being a part of this special birhtday.
Erika was great...from the beginning to the end...she captured her audience and kept them interested and intrigued with her performance...She certainly kept me interested and wowed me with her performance as I was the birthday boy :) You were great and a class act, enjoyed your performance and thanks again for the memorable moment.
Erika was terrific...I couldn't have asked for anything more. She is an excellent performer and really pulled it all off. I would highly recommended her...you will not be disappointed:-)
Marilyn Monroe did a wonderful job at my daughter's 15th birthday. I did a red carpet entrance Hollywood style and she was greeting the guest as they arrived and took pictures with them during the cocktail hour. My guests were very happy and pleased with her service. I recommend her. She did an excellent job. Fianny Cabrera
