Review by Marcia Erskine in the Sunday Herald, Kinston Jamaica
“Local diva Marisa Lindsay opened for Macy Gray on Wednesday, Jan. 10 at the Gary Sobers Gymnasium. She has a laid back style with a personality to die for. Her influence seems to come from Billy Holliday and Sarah Vaughn. With her smoky and sultry voice, Marisa serenaded the audience with songs like Lover Man, Girl from Ipanema as well as some of her own productions.
Her performance was pleasing and professional and without a doubt, has what it takes. One should keep an eye on the charming chanteuse, as she definitely has the potential to rise to the top.”
An excerpt of the review by Andrea King:
"Marisa THE BEAUTIFUL made Barbados proud with her engaging stage persona and rich voice... Opening for the Grammy Award winning artist (Macy Gray) was local song bird Marisa Lindsay, who lived up to the expectations of a magnificent performance.
....Marisa Lindsay displayed her playful, effervescent, engaging stage personality..."

...Night three began as a frontline showcase for local singing sensation Marisa Lindsay...
Lindsay took full command of the stage in the same confident stride seen in 'Hal Linton' the night before, only this stage was five or six times grander in dimension to Heritage Park. ..This is the place where on most occasions past greats are seen and remembered.
On this night it was
Marisa Lindsay who made the most positive contribution.
Lindsay with her Dinah Washington like inflections and speaking voice much akin to actress Jennifer Tilly, charmed the audience. Lindsay barely spoke the first few words and suddenly we knew we were in good company.
Throughout the set Lindsay told anecdotes and sang tunes from her recent release Submit2love. She loves her jazz. Night and Day, Lover Man and What A Difference A Day Makes were all given a contemporary makeover.
