Maru Prado Conti, from Rosario, Argentina, has performed in musical theater, participating in The Beauty and the Beast in Buenos Aires, as well as other musical theater productions. Maru is also a vocal coach and has a company called “Tu Experiencia Broadway.”
Maru decided to create her This is Gaga Tribute out of enormous respect for Lady Gaga as one of the most multi-talented entertainers of our time. Maru admires Gaga for her amazing singing, songwriting, acting and iconic support of the LGBTQ community. In her lyrics, Lady Gaga represents the feelings and thoughts of many people who suffer bullying and discrimination, encouraging them to feel free and love themselves.
Lady Gaga is known for her image reinventions and musical versatility. She began performing as a teenager, singing at open mic nights and acting in school plays. Gaga rose to prominence with her debut studio album, The Fame, and its chart-topping singles Just Dance and Poker Face. The album was later reissued to include The Fame Monster (2009), which yielded the successful singles Bad Romance, Telephone and Alejandro.
