Beauty, talent, charisma and passion, these are just a few of the qualities that describe twin sisters Marissa and Marianela Gonzalez; better known in the Hispanic market as "Las Gemelas Lulu y Lala."
From their appearance on Univision's beauty reality show Nuestra Belleza Latina 2007, the young Cuban-Salvadorian sisters have gained the affection, attention and support of New York's Latin community. The twins have won over the hearts of many because of their down-to-earth presence and charm.
In addition to their energetic personalities, the sisters have talent in various areas. Both have over 10 years of professional dance experience; they have modeling training; they have hosted television shows in both Spanish and English; they have worked in broadcast radio; and they are now embarking on a musical career. The Gonzalez sisters are definitely well rounded artists with the eagerness to continue learning along the way.

Eventually, they became regular correspondents on the entertainment news show "El Gordo y la Flaca", Univision's highest rated national TV show. This led to similar assignments for events such as Premios Juventud, Premio Lo Nuestro 2010 and 2011, Latin Grammys 2011 and the auditions for Nuestra Belleza Latina 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 in New York.
