Marcus performed at the Graceland Crossings and at the Crowne Plaza in Memphis. This invitation does not come easy, many have tried and have not succeeded. Marcus is well deserving of this invitation from Graceland as he portrays an uncanny tribute to the King.
Marcus is not a performer that takes a step back and always moves forward as he continues to perfect his amazing stage spectacular.
