Harmonious, poignant, and devout are just some of the words that best describe this young singer. Sweet soulful singer Marlon Orette Binns born in Manchester, Jamaica on October 14th, 1978, the sixth of nine children. His mother a homemaker, his father a pastor at Zion Restored Church in Mandeville. Marlon’s career is rooted in the church, where he sang in the church choir (as lead singer), and also at weddings and fund raisers for the church. He attended the Christiana Comprehensive High School and enjoyed playing football and cooking. A very humble person and inspired by the Almighty, Marlon prefers to write his own music, as this is his way of expressing himself and addressing issues of the heart and social commentaries. I sing for the people, their struggles, and triumphs! He loves Bob Marleys courageous, righteous lyrics always bringing a message and Beres Hammonds smooth style. These two great Jamaican artistes have left a legacy for young artistes like him to nurture. Marlon musical career became inevitable after he won the Grace Road Show in 1997. His first mission was finding a suitable team to work with. June 2002, Marlon moved to Kingston and teamed up with Solid Agency where he was exposed to the Dancehall/Reggae audience, performing on several events promoted by the company. One of his most memorable experiences to date was his first performance outside of Jamaica. He opened for Wayne Marshall in Antigua. I was surprised to see the love that was poured out to me during my performance! said Marlon. This has encouraged the young singer to carry on with his work, as he believes that he is chosen by the almighty to educate, motivate, uplift, and enhance the life of people and nations across the world. Recently Marlon opened for Voicemail at the University of the West Indies Freshers Fete on the St. Augustine campus. The responses from his performances are encouraging and his aspiration is to continue on the journey that the Great Bob Marley so passionately pursued.
