Marcus LeVar: R&B/Pop Singer & Songwriter on the Rise

November 21, 20236 min read

Music has been a part of Marcus LeVar’s life for as long as he can remember. Growing up in a non-musical family, he was inspired by his family to pursue music as a career. From self-teaching himself to sing, write, and play, he has been able to make a name for himself as an R&B/Pop singer and songwriter.

Marcus is a strong believer that music should be created for yourself and not for your fans. He believes that this is the best way to make sure that the music is genuine and true to his own style. His creative process is unique and interesting, as he records freestyles while he is on the road and doctor his ideas up to make a hit. His main inspiration is to make songwriting a career and use it as a way to live and explore life.

When asked about his favorite musician/artist, Marcus quickly answered Bruno Mars. Marcus admires Bruno Mars’ stage presence and ability to connect with the audience. Marcus’ goal is to one day have this same level of connection with his audience.

Marcus has been in the infant stages of his career for a few years now and is ready to take his career to the next level. He is playing in Vegas over Super Bowl weekend and is excited to show the world what he has to offer. His message to his fans is to watch him take the nuggets of info he is fed and then watch him become who he knows he will be.

If you are looking for some R&B/Pop music with a unique twist, then Marcus LeVar is the artist for you. You can find Marcus’ music on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, and Youtube. You can also contact Marcus on Instagram @marcus.levar or email him at malanderso@hotmail.com.
