Marilyn Monroe Tribute
REASONS TO BOOK MARILYN MONROE TRIBUTE
Marilyn Monroe is an unbelievable lookalike and tribute act to one of the 20th century’s greatest icons. Her nomination for The National Tribute Music Awards by The Agents Association of Great Britain, indicates the kind of high calibre performance you can expected from this amazing celebrity impersonator.
Aside from a live musical act, she can be booked as Marilyn to perform as a meet and greet artiste to mingle with your guests. Her immediately recognisable demeanour is always a huge success as guests cannot wait to get up close to chat and have photographs with Miss Monroe.
About Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 4, 1962) was an American actress, model, and singer. Famous for playing comic “blonde bombshell” characters, she became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s and early 1960s and was emblematic of the era’s changing attitudes towards sexuality. Although she was a top-billed actress for only a decade, her films grossed $200 million (equivalent to $2 billion in 2018) by the time of her unexpected death in 1962. More than half a century later, she continues to be a major popular culture icon.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Monroe spent most of her childhood in foster homes and an orphanage and married at the age of 16. While working in the Radioplane Company in 1944 as part of the war effort during World War II, she was introduced to a photographer from the First Motion Picture Unit and began a successful pin-up modeling career. The work led to short-lived film contracts with Twentieth Century-Fox (1946–1947) and Columbia Pictures (1948). After a series of minor film roles, she signed a new contract with Fox in 1951.
