Singer and Actress Marisha Wallace sat down with The Reel Effect founder, Meah Denee, to discuss her transition from singing on cruise ships to Broadway shows and then her big hop across the sea to London. Wallace found more than her spot on stage but endless opportunities that led her to singing for the Queen of England and eventually landing a recording deal!
