At her 15th birthday party she made her first presentation. "It was a surprise to all the guests. One of them was a manager who invited me to open a concert for a popular Brazilian singer called Fagner. After that, many other invitations came to me. I spent two years singing all around the brazilian northeast," she said.
Marina added that when the dream of recording her first CD arose, she felt that she still needed a little more preparation. She then decided to go and study music at Berklee College of Music, in Boston, United States. There she had harmony, vocal technique, arrangement, composition, stage performance, piano, percussion, musical style research and studio recording technique classes.
She also took part in a television program in Brazil, called "Fama". It is a reallity-show similiar to American Idol in which the public chooses the best from a group of pre-selected singers that auditioned for the show. She got the 4th place.
A total of 20 songs were recorded, so as to arrive at the 14 tracks of the CD that goes by the artist's name. Production is by Guto Graça Mello, Júnior Mendes and by Marina Elali herself, who accompanied each detail of the production of the CD. The mixing was by American sound engineer Dana Jon Chappelle, who has already worked with foreign celebrities like Celine Dion and Whitney Houston. The CD was mastered by Adam Ayam, at Gateway Mastering studio, in Portland, Maine, also in the United States. The pictures are by Manoel Guimarães and Nana Moraes.
