Lady GagaPerformed by Erika Moul
Erika Moul has been performing since she was a little girl in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She always knew she wanted to entertain and refused to do anything else. She graduated with Honors in 2012 from Michigan State University receiving her Bachelor in Fine Arts from the specialized Theatre program. Erika played numerous roles throughout college, one in which she received a coveted 'Best Leading Actress in a Musical' Pulsar award for Legally Blonde as Elle Woods.
To raise money for her fellow students to pursue their theatre dreams, Erika began to impersonate her biggest inspiration: Lady Gaga. She always had a connection to Lady Gaga, her music, and her message of love, freedom, and acceptance; so portraying her onstage was very genuinely created and lived. She never had a vocal lesson or a piano lesson, but was determined to create herself independently by teaching herself. Through constant study of Gaga, Erika still today continues to articulate her craft by embodying Gaga's essence of performance through her own experience.
Her alias as "Baby Gaga" made Erika a small town celebrity that eventually caught the eyes of Vegas before she even graduated. After meeting Gaga's parents and opening up for her best friend Lady Starlight, she began performing all over the world, including Jakarta, Indonesia where Lady Gaga's concert had been banned.
Erika has since then been recognized by her ͚Mother Monster͛ via social media continuously and is often mistakenly published as Lady Gaga herself. She is very honored to have accomplished so much success titled as ͞The Best of The Best Tributes͟at such a very young age. Singing and playing 100% LIVE, Erika loves to prove that true talent is the ability to transform. She loves performing as Gaga, but mostly she loves performing as herself. Erika has also gone on to create her own persona onstage as ͚The SpitFire͛ in which she first performed as the opening act for Rock Legend Dennis DeYoung and continues to produce and perform her own creation. Erika will always actively support the Born This Way Foundation as well as her own little monsters worldwide. She encourages everyone to: "Shoot for the Moon, and if you miss, you͛ll land amongst the stars."
