Larissa Larissa began singing professionally in 2008, as a background vocalist for Marshall Thompson, leader of the world famous, The Chi-Lites, best known for their gold-record hits "Oh Girl" and "Have You Seen Her?"
Thompson immediately recognized Larissa Larissa's exceptionally unique and whimsical voice saying, "I remember when I first heard her sing. I had never and to this day have never heard a voice quite like hers and I have been in this business for 55 years. Her style is amazing. I knew the world needed to hear her, and not just as my background vocalist, but as a solo recording artist."
In January 2013, Thompson pushed Larissa Larissa's solo career, asking her to join him on a project...the remake of "Suddenly," a duet originally performed by Olivia Newton-John and Sir Cliff Richard.
"Her voice is perfect for it," Thompson said.
The blend of Thompson's powerful 70's soul voice and Larissa Larissa's fresh airy vocals helped re-introduce "Suddenly" as the smash hit it debuted as in 1980. ("Suddenly" is the love theme from the motion picture Xanadu, and is also on the soundtrack to the 1980 film of the same name.) Just months after Larissa Larissa's release of "Suddenly," the single was ranked amongst Amazon's top ten Best Seller (Contemporary R&B) list.
In January 2014, riding off of the success of "Suddenly," Larissa Larissa released an energetic cover of "Thinking of You," originally performed by the famed singing group, Sister Sledge. Larissa Larissa also sang the “hey now” hook on the single, creating a fun dance groove and a unique appeal that absolutely crosses over into all music genres.
"Thinking of You" mimicked "Suddenly," and landed a spot on Amazon's top ten Best Seller (Contemporary R&B) list after its release as well. Both singles are currently ranked on Amazon's top 50 Best Seller (Contemporary R&B) list.
Larissa Larissa and her incredible band, The Larissa Larissa Project are currently touring…an international escapade that officially launched in January 2015.
In January 2015, Larissa Larissa released "Groovy Situation (That Guy)." She closes every show with the catchy rendition of the song, originally recorded by Gene Chandler (Duke of Earl), mesmerizing her audiences during the performance with unbridled energy and a captivating smile. It has quickly become her "signature" song...an absolute crowd pleaser.
The release of her latest hit in June 2016, “Suspicions,” was a labor of love for Larissa Larissa. “I fell in love with that song the first time I heard it,” she said. “I absolutely had to record it.”
