Taylor Makakoa is one of the featured performers in “Terry Fator: The VOICE of Entertainment” at the Mirage and, unlike many of her co-stars, she is a beautiful and talented flesh-and-blood woman with quite the resume who also happens to be married to Terry Fator.

Originating from the Hawaiian island of Oahu, Makakoa’s career has already taken her around the world before establishing herself in Las Vegas. Only in her early 20s, Makakoa’smodeling work includes Maxim, Vogue, Fredricks of Hollywood and CitiBank.
A trained dancer, Makakoa performed the “MeleKalikimaka” in the holiday show, as well as the “Tahitian” during the regular show and there are plans to add a Hawaiian puppet as a “partner” while Makakoa dances the hula. She is open to other opportunities but admits, “Right now my plate is full with the show, school and my work with Heaven Can Wait. I am the spokesperson for Heaven Can Wait, so there are many cases where I am speaking on camera. I have done other hosting gigs as well. I would love to do more in the future.

“I have a degree in nutrition science, and I am working on a degree is social science. I have plans to continue my education further, so I can be more helpful to charities like Heaven Can Wait. It is really hard to make plans for the future because life happens and everything changes.”

As for now, she enjoys appearing on stage “because it is exciting and live, and I enjoy modeling because it is what I love to do.”
