Marilyn Hucek

Marilyn Hucek is an American-Chilean pop singer-songwriter. After dreaming of being a pop star since before she can remember, she auditioned for The Voice with hopes of finally starting her music career. During the stay-at-home order of 2020, Marilyn’s father, who has Alzheimer’s, contracted coronavirus while at a retirement home. To cope with her inability to visit him, Marilyn returned to songwriting and gave life to a special song she dedicated to her father--a song that soon became her debut single. Since then, Marilyn has released several singles and an EP which collectively received tens of thousands of streams on Spotify.
