He trained his vocal skills singing in the local church and became musical director for his local choir before moving into off-Broadway acting and singing in New York.

From here he joined a group Tungsten Steele and was lead singer for three years.

He toured with Stephanie Mills which led to further popularity on the circuit.
He sang in several of New Jersey clubs before coming to the attention of writers and producers James Mtume and Reggie Lucas.
In 1981 they signed Marc to Warner Brothers and worked with him on two albums, 'One Way Love Affair' in 1981 and 'Exciting' in 1982, the latter including 'One Minute From Love'.
