She’s been hosting weekly shows for fans and local residents in keeping them entertained while in self-isolation by COVID-19.
Now, Kat Fullerton is choosing to give back to the community while also paying tribute to the woman who’s helped her gain international attention.
The Prince George impersonator is once again slipping into her best dress in hosting ‘Forever, Marilyn LIVE,’ which will act as a virtual fundraiser in partnership with the BC SPCA.
Fullerton is also marking what would be Ms. Monroe’s 94th birthday with the event.
Back in February, the 41-year-old won her first-ever award as a Marilyn mimic in the Classic Crooner category at the 2020 Reel Awards in Las Vegas.
“I’ve always been fascinated with Marilyn,” Fullerton said in an interview with PrinceGeorgeMatters following her victory.
“She’s always been that way and it’s like, you can’t take your eyes off of her. The mythology and her legacy is so interesting; she’s still on the cover of magazines, we’re still talking about her to this day. She’s the most recognizable woman in the entire world. I was always a good mimic; I can do good impressions, I can sound a lot like people so I got involved naturally. Any time for any reason I could be a Marilyn-type character, I could do it.”
In the event post, she says Marilyn had a love for animals, which led to the decision to partner with the non-profit and raising money for its Lock-In for Love campaign.
The one-woman show is free for viewers next week, but Fullerton encourages the public to contribute to the SPCA in any way it can.
You can tune in to ‘Forever, Marilyn LIVE’ on Monday, June 1 starting at 7 p.m. via Fullerton’s Almost Marilyn Facebook page.
