Miss Marsha is the baby of 12 children-- her parents were happily married for 56 years before they passed away. She's also a wife and mother to two miracle sons. In life, Marsha has known much pain, dealing with the death of her brothers, sister, nephew and parents all in a short span of time. Despite many tragedies, Marsha has persevered through it all, clinging to her faith in God. As a musical minister, Marsha 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.
Even at a young age, Marsha lived life with gusto, being listed in the Who’s Who In America book in 1984. After graduating from the MarJon School of Beauty Culture in 1994, Marsha opened her own salon called McWilson House of Beauty.
