New Artist Marcus Canty
Televised Talent Competitions like American Idol and the X Factor attract the best of the best, but for whatever reason, those singers don't always win first place on the show.
Marcus Canty is a new artist on WBLK with his Single "Won't Make a Fool Outta You" which will appear alongside Jennifer Hudson on the "Think Like A Man" Soundtrack. He's also working on hia own debut LP to be released on Epic Records.
He may have finished in fourth place on "The X Factor," but Marcus Canty should definitely consider himself a winner. Earlier this year, the R&B singer signed a deal with mentor L.A. Reid at Epic Records, along with fellow contestants Chris Rene and Astro.

"L.A Reid has been such a great mentor. He's loved the records that I've cut so far — he's enjoying it," Canty said. "He just wants me to continue to be myself. I just like to have fun. I want to make good music — I want to be somebody. He always tells me, 'Don't let anyone take away your joy.' That's what will carry me for a long time." -Marcus Canty
