Happy 100th Anniversary Girl Scouts!

Posted in General, Music, News, Press on November 10, 2011 by Michael and Marisa

Wow! There was no denying we were in “Girltopia”! The Los Angeles Expo Center was transformed into a plushy, carpeted, pink and purple girly world for over 12,000 Girl Scouts celebrating the 100th anniversary of the organization. The white wall to wall carpeting extended in every direction as far as the eye could see. Our friends at Justine Magazine were the first to welcome us inviting us to chill on their plushy bean bag chairs.

The Mayor of Girltopia was Madison De La Garza, sister of Demi Lovato, best known for her role as Juanita Solis on “Desperate Housewives”. She was a lot of fun to hang with in the green room and told us how she loves to play her part because she can act out and be fresh, which is not something she would ever do in real life.

It was amazing to walk around and see so many of the girl scouts wearing our Michael and Marisa bracelets coming up to us saying they recognize us from J-14 magazine. There was a panel of girls talking about teen issues that included Josie Lauren from “Make it or Break it” and “Madison High”‘s Katherine McNamara, who we got to chat with a bit and who was super nice.

Drew Seely entertained as well to screaming girls hearing the voice behind the Zac Efron character in High School Musical.

We want to thank the Girl Scouts organization for having us perform as well as the hundreds of girls who came to our meet and greet after our show. It was awesome to meet you!! The Girl Scouts of America ran a fantastic event and we were glad to be a part of it!!

SOOO excited that word is getting out about the new video for “You Feel Like Saturday”! I couldn’t wait to share it with you all when they released it and now some really cool sites are picking up on it! Take a look at what they’re saying below:

“We introduced you to pop/rock teen duo Michael & Marisa December when they released their anti-bullying song, ‘The Same.’ The two teens recently released a music video for their song ‘You Feel Like Saturday’ and we have to say, it’s pretty catchy!” —AOL Kids

“Our friends at Cambio recently premiered the video, but we thought it was so cool that we had to share it with you, too. In the video, the brother and sister two-piece sings of sleepless nights and endless days, but there’s one person who breaks up the monotony for Michael.” —

“One of our fave new groups just released a new video for their fun single, ‘You Feel Like Saturday.’ The video is a follow-up to their first song, ‘The Same’ (from the It’s Like That EP), which put Michael & Marisa in the spotlight for their anti-bullying initiatives.” —M Magazine

“Pop/rock teen duo, Michael & Marisa, 13 and 14 respectively, premiered their latest video for their addictive pop single ‘You Feel Like Saturday’ on Cambio.” —The Trades

The video is also featured on Cambio,, AOL Music, Kidz Bop, Twist Magazine, Sweety High, A Sweet Beat, Skope, and
