At the age of ten she danced in "The Nutcracker" with the Miami Ballet. Besides dance, Majandra also took part in school plays and the community theatre. At the age of eleven, her best friend Samantha Gibb, daughter of the Bee Gees' Maurice Gibb, joined an all-girls singing quartet named China Doll. The group specialized in soul-styled pop.
After opening for the Bee Gees at a benefit concert at Miami Beach, the girls enjoyed small success. A fews years later both Majandra and Samantha left the group. Majandra decided to give her acting dreams a shot.
In her role as Maria DeLuca in Roswell fans could hear Majandra sing some songs.

In season three of Roswell Majandra sang some songs in the episode #308 Behind The Music. Her character Maria started making music again for the first time after the death of her friend Alex. In addition, a song from Majandra's album The Sicks was used for the show.
As an independent artist it's hard to finance a tour, but Majandra got the chance to play shows in New York, Los Angeles and Philadelphia and all this concerts were sold out shows. She also played a show in Paris, France.
Because of the french magazine "Arkanium" or let's rather say because of Franck, who was as just as inspired by Majandra's album as of the music of the french songstress roBERT and a duet come off. A new version of "Le Prince Bleu" a french song but now with english parts. In this same year Majandra came back to Paris to perform with roBERT.
