Biography

Marcus Cole, whose solo album, “Write My Song,” debuted last year, has been ministering through his music since he was a child. In an interview with ChristianMusic.com, he talked about his music, his ministry and his life.

“I grew up in Saginaw, Michigan, the youngest of five children. We had a family group. Singing in church became a release for me,” Cole says. “Community Temple Church for God and Christ. I sang in the choir and our family sang as a group in church.”

When he was fourteen, the family moved to Danville, Illinois. After school, Cole returned to Flint, Michigan, to work in the music business. One day he saw a girl whom he had not only grown up with but who had lived on the other end of his block.

“I knew who she was right away. I couldn’t forget that face,” says Cole. “It wasn’t until we were dating that I told her I was the guy who used to throw rocks at her to get her attention.” That girl, Anissa, became his wife.

Honing his skills as a Gospel and R&B singer, Marcus Cole moved with Anissa to Atlanta for a short time. His big break, though, came once again in Michigan. Singing in a showcase for Jive/Verity Records, he struck up a conversation with Mitchell Jones of the legendary Gospel group ‘Commissioned’. “We were just talking about music,” Cole explains. “He didn’t mention joining the group then.”

“A few months later, they called me and asked me to come to Grand Rapids to audition. So I did and then the next thing I know I’m singing with them in a New Year’s Eve concert at Radio City Music Hall. That was my first time with Commissioned and Marvin Sapp’s last.”
