Martika is a Cuban-American actress and singer. Born Marta Marerro, her Cuban-immigrant parents put her into show business. She began her career as a lead in the children's television program "Kids Incorperated". In 1988 CBS records signed her to a record deal hoping she would be the next Madonna. Her first album, "Martika," had hits with the songs "More Than You Know," "I Feel the Earth Move" and "Toy Soldiers". The latter is considered her biggest hit.
In 1991 she released her second album, "Martika's Kitchen," which was co-produced and co-written by Prince. Hit singles surfaced in the title track and the power-ballad "Love...Thy Will be Done". A world tour followed. In the mid-90's she starred as Dhalia Mendez on the television show "Wiseguys".
She faded into obscurity until the late 1990's when a new album called "The Journey" began circulating in mp3 format. It was never released.
In 2003 she formed the goth-pop duo "Oppera", and released two albums: "Oppera" and "Violince"
"Martika is a very famous singer."
