What Do Freddie Mercury and Queen Marilyn 1 Have in Common?

Both are of African Origins and Played The Same Stage Live Aid & Live 8

Queen Marilyn 1 (‘Queen Marilyn the First’) has always known her worth: the British artist of West African origins considers herself a storyteller who sings, writes, composes, DJs and produces music for soulful and passionate people like herself. She has spent much of her life traveling the world through her music and making friends wherever she landed - Despite the wanderlust Queen Marilyn 1 is a Londoner and West London is her true home. 

In her formative years Marilyn David aka Queen Marilyn 1 returned to West Africa to learn more about herself and her roots, winning a national radio show contest and quickly becoming an on-air host and sensation between Ghana and Nigeria. The opportunity to switch gears came leading her to Paris and her passion for fashion design.  Her standout beauty and vibrant personality landed her modeling jobs for Haute Luxury and Couture Houses such as Cartier, Dior in Paris, and brands Vogue Italy, Boucheron and others.

Queen Marilyn 1 then took her talents to the recording studio, where her writing skills and multi-octave vocal range got her noticed by established performers such as disco/dance music legends Marc Cerrone and Chic’s Nile Rogers, who invited Queen Marilyn 1 to merger her Solo music world tour with theirs. Taking the emerging star on their world tours as a featured vocalist. This led to collaborations with popular French artist David Guetta and other well-known DJs - but at the height of her career, she felt the need to go back to her singer-songwriter roots. 

As Marilyn David, the Queen produced her own songs as an independent artist, topping club charts in the UK and across Europe, selling over 30,000 copies of each through small independent labels. Now with all-new material as a solo artist currently recording in London and preparing a national tour, Queen Marilyn 1’s #NewPop aka DancePop! is a confection that invokes the spirit to dance in the name of love.
