Marisha Wallace, who is currently wowing British audiences and media in Dreamgirls as the lead role Effie White, releases her debut album on all digital platforms and mini vinyl. Entitled Soul Holiday, it captures not only the forthcoming festive season, but also the powerhouse voice of this extraordinary talent.
Marisha Wallace has chosen a selection of Christmas classics and truly made them her own. Songs include Do You Hear What I Hear, I’ll Be Home For Christmas, Blue Christmas, Oh Come All Ye Faithful and, from Sister Act 2, Joyful Joyful. As an added bonus especially for fans of Dreamgirls, and for those who have yet to see Marisha’s performance, she has included I’m Changing, the second act showstopper.
Prior to Dreamgirls, Marisha got her big break starring in the break out role of Ado Annie in Oklahoma, where she received a Drammy Award for Best Actress in a Musical. She then went on to be cast in the First National US Tour of the Tony Award Winning Musical The Book of Mormon. Following Mormon Marisha was cast in the original Broadway company of the five-time Tony Award nominated musical Disney's Aladdin where she originated the role of The Fortune Teller, she then appeared in a new musical, Something Rotten, which went on to be nominated for 10 Tony Awards.
And now Marisha has added not only London’s West End to her credits, but an album of holiday hits will form part of her illustrious career to date.
To tie in with the launch of her album, Marisha will perform 2 intimate concerts, featuring the tracks from Soul Holiday plus a handful of other seasonal favourites and one or two surprise guests, at Charing Cross Theatre on Sunday 3rd December at 5pm & 8pm.
