Erika was wonderful! She is an outstanding singer and performer. She took the time to really understand the “behind the scenes” of the Birthday event. She came a day early to visit the location. The “younger folks in the crowd” really thought she was Marilyn Monroe. I have seen several MM impersonators in the past few years, but Erika stands out as the BEST!

Erika was AMAZING! Her look is fabulous and she was on time (early actually!), a pleasure to work with, completely charming, got into the spirit of things and stayed for photos with guests etc. The birthday boy was beyond thrilled and we had a blast. We were just delighted – thanks for being a great sport and a fabulous entertainer! She really does look like Marilyn! Gorgeous woman and a great actor / singer!

Erika put on an amazing show, from her singing to her mingling with the guest. She took pictures with everyone having all Marilyn Monroe’s mannerisms down, a born natural. I have given many parties over the years and was told I out did myself with the entertainment. This was a surprise 60th birthday party for my husband. Memories were made for him as well as our guest. That’s what life is about making great memories. Thanks again for being a part of this special birthday.
