Listen: GUYS & DOLLS Star Marisha Wallace Releases Christmas Single 'Little House in the Snow'

Multi-award-winning singer, songwriter and actor Marisha Wallace releases original Christmas single Little House in the Snow, a collaboration with GRAMMY-winning songwriter Toby Gad. Currently on stage in the critically-acclaimed Guys & Dolls, Marisha is one of Broadway and the West End's biggest names.

Multi-talented, Wallace has fronted Charlotte Tilbury campaigns, starred in a Netflix series alongside Lisa Kudrow, performed everywhere from Strictly Come Dancing to The Royal Variety, released a chart-topping charity single at the height of the pandemic for the NHS, earned Radio 2's Album of the Week and received Olivier and Evening Standard Theatre nominations this year alone.

Little House in the Snow is inspired by Marisha's own story of never being allowed to celebrate Christmas growing up in North Carolina. Secret traditions were made with her mother, who handed out gifts to Marisha and her siblings from a black bin bag in private, and their new toys had to be hidden as soon as their father returned home for the day.

From a sad, yet magical time created by her mother, Marisha now brings all the emotion and nostalgia to her new song which effortlessly highlights her powerful, soulful voice in a stripped back, emotional piano ballad.

"I would watch Home Alone, A Christmas Story, Scrooge, The Muppet Christmas Carol and imagine that I would have those Christmases that you see on television and in the movies. Now, I try to make memories at Christmas that I couldn’t make when I was little. I will decorate and bring all that Christmas spirit that was kept from me for so long. Christmas to me means creating the life you want to have. Everybody’s Christmas is different, but if you have family and each other then you have everything, and Christmas is everything." - Marisha Wallace

Teaming up with Grammy-winning hitmaker Toby Gad (John Legend All of Me, Beyonce If I Were A Boy, Fergie Big Girls Don't Cry), the pair have created a heart-felt original Christmas track that sums up what the festive season is really about. Toby and Marisha will also be performing together in London at the Royal Festival Hall December 15th and 17th as well as appearing on hit UK chat show The Graham Norton Show later on this year.
