When I first heard Marcus Canty on American Idol in 2007 he was great and was only 16. Even though the judges cut him, I knew he was going to be remarkable. What the heck were the judges thinking? Apparently they don’t have an ear for good music. After all they cut Jennifer Hudson. Marcus was born in Bowie, Maryland on January 22, 1991. This 22 year old R&B, soul singer, dancer and musician can hold his own with the best of them. Marcus was influences by some great singers like Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, Boys II Men Mary J. Blige, Monica, Bobby Brown, and Whitney Houston. His song “Won't Make A Fool Out Of You” was in the movie Think Like A Man. His debut album “This…Is Marcus Canty” was released in 2013. Yes, he can sing some songs that I put on my playlist. They are “User By You”, “Won't Make A Fool Out Of You”, “Tonight”, “Three Words”, “Stay In Love”, “Don’t Pass Me By” and In Out. Streetwise Radio is playing songs from Marcus Canty’s album “This…Is Marcus Canty”. I think he did a great job. I hope on his next album he uses more live musicians because he was fantastic on American Idol. You can listen to Streetwise Radio on MyGen365, Live365, Athena365, iTunes and Pandora.
