In 2013, she relocated to Los Angeles, and in a little more than 100 days, secured a major national commercial campaign with Meineke. She’s been getting her coin ever since, being cast as the co-star in a number one network comedy on ABC, “Black-ish”, playing the character Diane Johnson.

Marsai recently performed in the 35th Anniversary Celebration of the Tony Award winning Musical “Dreamgirls” with the original stars (Sheryl Lee Ralph, Loretta Devine and Jennifer Holliday), singing the hit song “Move”. So the teen hitmaker is extremely busy being a boss. When asked what she wants to do when she grows up, her answer simply is, “To be a legend”.
