“I felt I belonged. For the first time in my life I had the feeling that the people seeing me were accepting me and liking me...for the first time I felt like a movie star. ”
― Marilyn Monroe ―
Watch here a view assignments of what Debra Monroe has done already.
Miss Pinup contest!
January 26, 2020, the Miss Pinup election was organized in Alkmaar for the 2nd time. The moment she entered the Aloha Café, it was already pretty busy and the atmosphere was nice and relaxed '' still '' At 13.00 the Miss Pinup election started, Debra was candidate number 11. Everyone was nervous and went out of their way. The most creative acts passed by, from baking cakes, to dancing, singing and speeches, Debra Monroe felt competition. After the first break, it was her turn! And she suddenly became nervous. Because this was not a '' normal '' performance but you were nevertheless judged by a jury.
Debra Monroe wanted to show Marilyn from another side. The audience and the jury were very enthusiastic when she was finished. At the end of the afternoon, 4 finalists of the Noord-Holland region were announced, but unfortunately Debra was not among them. A pity, but she enjoyed the acts, and Debra Monroe has another experience.
The video clip went online on January 18, 2020! Debra Monroe was approached by Danny Fabry to ask if she would like to participate in the video clip: Moviestar. She immediately said: yes how nice!
The recordings were in Belgium in December 2019, and she has therefore used her acting talent very well.
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Debra Monroe had a performance at dance school on December 21, 2019.
Tasty Ballroom dancing in Zaandam. A beautiful Christmas ball was organized with 83 people present, and the dance hall was beautifully decorated in a Christmas atmosphere. And let it just be that Debra Monroe is also taking dance lessons there! The feet went off the floor, and the moment Debra rose she had the full attention of the audience. Despite her annoying cold, everything went smoothly.
On November 9, 2019, Debra Monroe had another assignment: singing 2 songs at her dance school! This time not in Monaco, but in her own place of residence. The Zaanse Bigband was also there, and during their break Debra Monroe started singing her songs. She came on stage with her white dress, and her wind machine was behind her. Only nobody knew what that really was. Until she stood up and her skirt was blown up. Nobody expected that so everyone started clapping and responded very nicely. She also sang a second song: I am through with love, and people even went on the floor to make beautiful shots of Debra Monroe.
Debra Monroe received a request on 14 October whether she would like to perform on 5 November 2019 for a couple who were going to celebrate their 30-year marriage in beautiful Monaco! Debra watched her eyes as the nerves screamed through her body. Normally she sings Happy Birthday, but this time it was Happy Anniversary, which just had to be practiced. The day of her performance went smoothly and the nerves moved away very quickly when she saw the view of the Mediterranean Sea. The clear blue water with the beautiful mountains in the background made her shine. Debra Monroe was the surprise act of the day, and the moment the couple saw Debra Monroe, they got a big smile from ear to ear and it never went away!
A big success!
Great success! This is how Debra Monroe looks back on this day. 7 September 2019 she was booked for a
