Markie 3, a native of The Bronx, N.Y., started singing in a church choir at the age of 6. His soulful voice and unique style pay tribute to many of the artists that paved the way for performers like him and countless others. Enjoying artists from the 70s and beyond, Markie 3 likes to write songs that tell stories. Usually you'll hear him singing an M3 original, but he has proven his take on musical classics such as I've Been Searching by Glenn Jones or so high byJohn Legend,sound just as amazing. The key to his success is he believes a song should have strong lyrics, not just a catchy beat. Some of his chart toppers are sorry,the right time and from his most recent EP, In My Own Lane,'oh' and no man like that.
Singing however, is just one of his talents. In high school, when he wasn't singing or writing, he was playing basketball.
