In 2017, Marisa was montaged on America's Got Talent's Season 12, singing Martina McBride's "Broken Wing", at age 12.

Life and career
2004–2016: Early career
Marisa says that she first performed "at a fair", probably in her birthplace of Jackson, Tennessee, when she was five years old, in 2009-10. The earliest published video of a Marisa performance was at the Jackson General AA baseball game, on 2 February 2011.
In 2012, Marisa moved, with her family, to Franklin, Tennessee, a fashionable suburb of Nashville, where her father practices as a radiologist and her mother is a nurse in a Children's Hospital. She has been performing in local restaurants, bars and music venues since then. In 2014, a Generation Granny article listed Marisa as Reason No. 5 why Nashville is the ultimate bachelorette destination: because "Odds are you’ll see a child prodigy, because parents in Nashville let their talented 10-year-olds sing way past their bedtimes for bars packed with enthusiastic drunks.".
2016-Present: Playing Guitar And Writing Original Songs
In 2014-2015, Marisa learned how to play the guitar and began writing her own songs the following year. From 2016, she became popular enough at open mic events at Nashville restaurants offering live music that Marisa was asked to perform regularly. The first was Bluebird Cafe. Then Sopapilla's Tequila Room , Margaritaville, Song Suffragettes, Honky Tonk Central and others followed. In 2016, Marisa was invited to participate in the Acoustic Guitar Project of the Country Music Hall of Fame.In the same year, she accompanied Kevin Spacey in his visit to Children's Health Care of Atlanta.
In 2017, Marisa began hosting the weekly songwriter's round, "Marisa And Friends", at Sopapilla's Tequilla Room. On 6 February 2017, Marisa released her EP of 7 songs, "Colorful Girl", named after a line in "Like Me", "I'm a colorful girl in a black-and-white world." Also, in February 2017, Marisa performed at American Girl's Nashville debut of its Tenney Grant doll. In 2017, Marisa appeared at the THON performance at Pennsylvania State University
In 2017, Marisa was convinced to audition for America's Got Talent, an NBC television talent show. She passed the audition, which was never televised. Then, although all comments from the judges shown were favourable , Marisa's Judge Cuts performance was montaged and she was not allowed to continue to the live shows. Not all media commentary on Marisa'sperformance on America's Got Talent was favourable: Too Fab said that she was pleasant to watch but that her voice was not totally matured. . Marisa clearly has no hard feelings and is proud to have passed the AGT auditions.  She said she made some talented friends on AGT that she still has.
In March 2018, Marisa was showcased, with other artists, on the Music Row Show . She was also featured on the cover of the 2018 "Where Nashville?" Guestbook . In 2018, Marisa appeared for the third time on Nashville show "It's All About The Music"  In April 2018, Marisa appeared in the Jill's Wish charity concert in Louisville, Kentucky. In June 2018, Marisa was featured in the Teen Queens songwriter series of Listening Club in Nashville . She contributed four cover songs to the "Homegrown Kids Country Volume 1" project of BMI Songwriter Of The Year (2016-2017) Ross Copperman, released in December 2018 
Marisa has not used her many connections in the Nashville music scene to become a country star. She seems happy attending a public junior high school and being a "local hero" in metropolitan Nashville, posting her original videos on her YouTube channel.
