Born in Washington, D.C., singer and recording artist, Marcus Canty, was raised by his mother in Palmer Park, Maryland along with his older sister in a full house with their aunt and her three children.
After graduating high school in 2009 and exhausting the performance circuit around his native Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia area, where he opened for Bow Wow, B5 and Hurricane Chris, the young tenor connected with an independent label from the Motor City.
While crafting what he hoped would garner a major label deal, Marcus heard about the “X Factor” auditions and saw his chance at stardom. He went on to make a successful run on the show, ultimately finishing in fourth place.
