Born and raised in Manila, Philippines, Luisa fell in love with theatre after landing the role of Mary Magdalene in her high school’s production of Jesus Christ Superstar. She graduated university with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications before pursuing her true passion: singing. This paved the way to performances with the popular group Ambivalent Crowd and her own band Hall of Fame in Manila, Japan and Malaysia.
In 1989, Luisa and her band came to Canada touring North America. Her uncanny resemblance to Tina Turner paved the way for her world class tribute act, receiving rave reviews and standing ovations all over the world. Luisa was invited on Oprah twice and made a much-talked about special appearance on the ELLEN Show.
Believing in the importance of giving back, Luisa performed in various fundraising events, including a grueling show tour for the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Bosnia and Sarajevo, performing for the Multinational Force and Observers in Israel and Egypt, and raising awareness for veterans with PTSD. In 2013, she was voted as one of the Top Canadian Immigrants.
Luisa is a mother of two, Kimi and Zenia, married to Steve Marshall, a singer, advocate, producer, tv host of SMC Channel 4’s Simply The Best, The Luisa Marshall Show and writer/ publisher for MetroVan Independent News Online.
