Read below for Marcus' Bio.

Marcus Johnson - The man who "Does things that Make people say he's crazy!"

Whether on the stage, in the classroom, in the community, or as a father, Marcus Johnson leaves a mark wherever he lands. Musician, Entrepreneur, Professor, Author, Motivational Speaker, he is the consummate dreamer-doer. He believes that investing in the community and in one’s self is the best way to solve some of life’s most pressing questions: Why are we here? What is our purpose? In answering these questions for himself, Marcus has successfully navigated the realms of music, business, education, and entrepreneurship.

Marcus spent his undergraduate years at Howard University and went on to earn his JD/MBA degree from Georgetown University. As a graduate student, he partnered with Black Entertainment Television (BET) founder and entrepreneur Robert L. Johnson to start Marimelj Entertainment Group. This entity later became Three Keys Music, an independent record label that produced over 25 albums by several internationally-known artists. As a musician and independent artist, Marcus has released 18 studio albums (seven of which have appeared on Billboard’s Top 10 Contemporary Jazz chart), garnered an NAACP Image Award nomination for Jazz Album of the Year, and has toured the world, performing at various music festivals and venues both domestic and abroad, including shows in Paris, Ghana, St. Lucia, and Bermuda.

His successes and failures have made him an insightful and dynamic motivational speaker/lecturer that engages audiences around the country at venues, including the Microsoft Small Business Weekly Conference, the AARP Life Reimagined Conference, the EPA, American University, Copyright Alliance, Black MBA Association, and Harvard Law School. His motivational mark led to invitations for 2 TEDx Talks, (TEDxNYU 2016 and TEDxECUAD 2017). Yes 2 TED talks. Additionally, he has just been contracted for an installment called From Passion to Profit for AARP.

Marcus’ first book titled For the Love Of... was published nationally in March 2017 and dives deeper into these life lessons he has learned while working to make his dreams a reality. The book quickly made the Amazon’s Best Seller’s List, making Marcus the “Top of his Game” in yet another market. He has created a formula for success in the music, wine, and lifestyle industries and For the Love Of… is a collection of essays discussing strategies that helped him cope with the highs and lows of his journey. Readers are given the tools to help discover their purpose, pursue their passion, stay the course, and not be innocent bystanders in their own lives.

“I am committed to using my talents to help artists and others create and protect the rights in their passion. Furthermore, my goal is to use my “keyboard pulpit” to spread the word about faith and the fact that all things are possible through dreaming, planning, executing, listening, and learning.”
