Marsha McWilson to Perform  One Show Concert At the Robeson Theatre July 29! 

Marsha McWilson  will bring her own unique brand of vocal excellence to the African American Cultural Center   when she performs “An intimate Affair with Marsha McWilson: A One Woman Show”  on the stage of the Paul Robeson Theatre  inside the African American Cultural Center, 350 Masten Avenue. The show will take place Friday, July 29 at 7 p.m.

The first Black woman artist to be inducted into the Niagara Falls Music Hall of Fame,  Marsha began singing when  she was 6 years old as  a member of the St. John’s AME Church choir. Over the years her niche style ultimately went from gospel to blues and today she sings nationally and inter- nationally to appreciative audiences who can’t get enough of the personable vocalists’  “inspirational Blues” as she aptly describes her style.

Marsha literally changes the atmosphere with her music.     Indeed. Marsha McWilson  has made a name for herself as an accomplished singer, appearing on the Bobby Jones Gospel TV show and singing in concert with greats like David & Tamela Mann, Yolanda Adams, Kim Burrell, Donnie McClurkin and many others. Marsha has met several fellow entertainers like Tyler Perry, Bobby Brown, comedian Luenell, the cast of Menopause: The Musical, and CeCe Peniston. She has lead a Gospel choir down the runway at Fashion Week in Toronto. You might have heard her as a radio host on WUFO-Buffalo.

She won an acting contest on the Tom Joyner Cruise which lead to an appearance in Tyler Perry’s TV show, If Loving You Is Wrong. Lately she has been paying tribute to Etta James with standing-room-only concerts in places like Lewiston, NY, along with recording her Blue Sky Blues CD, a follow-up to her hit song on iTunes entitled “Balance.” She also played the role of “Athena” in “The Odyssey” at Artpark during the summer of 2018 and sang during the Lewiston Jazz Fest at What’s The Point Ministries. 

Having trained under Les Brown, Marsha is also a motivational speaker, talking to young people about making good choices in life. Her giving spirit garnered her a Humanitarian Award from the City of Niagara Falls in 2002.  

She has rubbed elbows with the greats but maintains her sense of humility So when  she’s not in the spotlight on stage, Marsha – who is also an entrepreneur/stylist – is  shining another kind of light on her customers and those she mentors. 

During the Coronavirus Pandemic, Marsha  wrote and recorded the song “Rona Mae Blues,” which received a lot of media attention, especially since she lost her sister Vanessa and several other friends and relatives to the deadly virus.      

She is best known for her hit song “Balance.”

An evangelist at Zion Dominion Global Ministries, serving under Bishop Roderick L. Hennings, she is married and the mother of two.

As a musical minister, MarshaMcWilson  is the kind of artist who walks into a room radiating light, love and laughter. 

You don’t just hear her sing– you experience her!
