Luisa Marshall has been performing as a Tina Turner tribute artist for over 10
years now. Her uncanny resemblance to the rock goddess and her ability to
perform with such energy and passion has earned her fans from all over, never
failing to impress even the most diehard Tina fans. Marshall's reputation to help
other people gained her a television show when she appeared on television on
Oct. 2009 to call for unity of all Filipino Canadian Associations to help the
Ondoy flood victims. The popular local show "SIMPLY THE BEST" with Luisa
Marshall airs twice every Monday in Metro Vancouver, BC, Canada, 10:30am -
11am and 9pm-9:30pm Channel 116.

As a child growing up, Luisa aspired to become an actress but at age 17, her
attention quickly turned to singing when she landed the role of Mary Magdalene
in the musical Jesus Christ Superstar in a high school production. And more
musicals playing second role to Broadway stage bigwigs like Bernardo Bernardo
and Baby Baredo. A career in show business was put on hold as she decided to
go to university, eventually graduating with a degree in Bachelor of Arts major
in Advertising, Broadcasting, and Public Relations.

Instead of following a career in newscasting or public relations, she followed
her true passion -- singing -- which paved the way to performances with the
popular group Ambivalent Crowd. She eventually got together with her two
female siblings to form Hall Of Fame, a top 40 cover band, that toured all over
the world, including Japan, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, the
Middle East, Canada and the U.S. As the lead vocalist for Hall of Fame band she
toured North America in the late 80's. The release of the band's debut single, a
remake of Sweeney Todd's "Roxy Roller" featuring Luisa followed with great
reviews. More tours followed up and the band became a favorite in North

It was in Tokyo, Japan, that Luisa was able to see Tina Turner in concert for
the very first time. She had been a true fan since then. But it was not until
later that she discovered what an admiration for her rock icon would lead up

In 1995, while performing with her band in Dubai, Luisa gave in to the
persistent request of a fan to wear a wild "Tina" wig, during Proud Mary. The
combination of looking like the rock queen, the rock 'n roll attitude and her
strong vocals brought the house down. Thus, Luisa's career as a tribute artist
was born. But it wasn't until late 1999 that she decided to become a serious
Tina Turner tribute artist. In 2003, she won the grand prize as World Rock 'N
Roll Tribute Artist Champion, beating out participants from all over Canada,
North America and the US.

In 2004, Luisa Marshall performed for the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in
a grueling show tour that included war-torn Bosnia and Sarajevo. She was
invited again the following year 2005 to perform for the Multinational Force
and Observers (MFO) in Israel and Egypt.

In 2005, Luisa had the pleasure of entertaining the audience of the Oprah
Winfrey Show in Chicago by rendering an impromptu song number. Tina Turner
was the featured guest at the time. Luisa had the surreal experience of seeing
Miss Turner in awe, watching her perform The Best as it was played back on the
studio's big screen. Three years after (2008) she was called by Oprah's producer
to dress up like Tina Turner on "Oprah's Biggest Show Ever" that was held at
Caesar's Palace "Coliseum" with the comeback of two icons, Cher and Tina
Turner. She was called to perform Proud Mary in front of the 4,000 fans.

In 2006, Luisa played the challenging role of Tina Turner in the most
spectacular stage musical "TINA A Rock 'N Roll Journey". For three years, she
toured all over North America and the US with her band and dancers and
became an internationally acclaimed stage performer. Her performance as Tina
received a lot of rave reviews and standing ovations all over.

In spite of her busy schedule and touring, Luisa still manages to be a full-time
wife to her husband Steve, and mother to her daughters Kim and Zenia.
Whenever she can, she shares her time and talent performing for various
organizations for worthy causes.
