“This Is Marcus Canty”
March 6th 2013
The Box NYC came alive last night with the release and performance by X Factor 2012 contestant Marcus Canty new album “This is Marcus Canty”
We first heard about Marcus Canty on X Factor when he wowed the judges with his energetic performance and raw singing talent. Groomed by music mogul LA Reid it was obvious to the viewers that we were watching another future break out star. His swag can be compared to that of Usher, Neyo and Chris brown.
With all the excitement that surrounds him on X Factor, I wanted to find out for myself, so when I got the invite to attend his release party I didn’t decline. The Box was filled of fans, industry professionals and media houses. When Marcus appeared on stage the females couldn’t get enough of him. He was smooth and he delivered an Electrifying performance with his two back up dancers. With the screaming fans and the sweat that dripped from his face he gave them all he had.
My night was only going to get better, when to my surprised Marcus took me out of the crowd and began to hypnotize me with lyrics from his new single “ I want to be used by you” all I could do was looked into his eyes and said you have just arrived. lol
When the night ended, Marcus didn’t leave his fans hanging. He took pictures and mingled. LA Reid, who was upstairs in the Gallery, must have left right after. Thanks to Epic and YRB Magazine for endorsing this event. Congrats to Marcus Canty for giving others a dream. A simple kid from Washington DC raised by a single mom is now proving to the world that he has a purpose. This is Marcus Canty is available now on ITunes. Be sure to show your support.
