This Michigan born All American girl is a multi-award winning tribute artist known throughout the globe. A true professional in performance art and entertainment production, she continues to wow audiences worldwide with her jaw dropping vocals, magnetic energy, and natural beauty.
Just after high school, she was selected alongside only 12 others to study in a specialized Fine Arts program focused on theatre, acting, producing and directing. Performing in multiple shows, sometimes two at a time, she earned a coveted “Best Leading Actress” award for her role as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde the Musical and received honors along with her Bachelor’s upon graduation at Michigan State University in 2012.
In the early stages of her career, Erika produced shows in local clubs to raise funds for her fellow college students when Broadway and Las Vegas took notice of her talent. Offering her careers in multiple directions, she decided that portraying someone already famous was the acting role of a lifetime with the best of both worlds.
Erika proved that decision a success, as she is a multi-faceted tribute artist. She not only portrays Carrie Underwood, but also another powerhouse Diva: Lady Gaga for over the past 10+ years. While performing as Gaga, she felt the urge to push her abilities to another level. She had on several occasions been confused for Carrie while out n about, but even more so when she’d sing at local dive bars. Naturally Erika emulates Carrie Underwood head to toe with her good girl next door looks and country charm, but be prepared to be “Blown Away” the moment she starts singing. She captures every emotion of the lyrics and southern energy that’ll have you dancing the dirt off your boots.
“This role feels like coming home to my roots. Country is very powerful that way. I think about singing with my hand out the window driving down dirt roads. I’m so excited to debut this character with Legends in Concert, it’s giving me a chance to be more myself than I’ve ever been.”
Performing: June 8 - July 17
