Marcus Paul James
5pm

Brooklyn native Marcus Paul James (MPJ) was born into a Baptist family with a Panamanian DJ father. He was raised in the church and singing in the choir loft as soon as he could stand. At home, MPJ was surrounded by the timeless voices of Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder, Teddy P, and other R&B greats. The influence of these artists etched love for R&B, soul, gospel and tender ballads into his soul. Growing as a singer-songwriter and with a love for new music and experiences in his blood, using nothing but his soulful voice and eclectic flair, he landed roles on Broadway, TV, and Film. Currently a cast member of Ain't Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations (nominated for 12 Tony Awards), Marcus has been a part of many other award-winning projects like RENT, In the Heights, NBC's "The Wiz,” and The Greatest Showman. In 2010, he released his first full-length album “Meant To Be” under Silver Towers Productions, in which the title track went on to chart on the UK soul charts. From that album, “Wonderful Love” and “Right Now” would go to hold 1st and 3rd on those charts for 5 consecutive weeks. MPJ’s music shines as the perfect balance of Soul, R&B, and popular music. A true singer-songwriter whose lyrics and music take your heart and ears to places few artists do, MPJ’s recent EP release “Paper Hearts” is a true testament to his vocal versatility and writing prowess.
