Marc Broussard at The Intersection 11/19
Soul singer Marc Broussard has been on the scene since 2002. He has a new CD out now called Keep Coming Back (Atlantic) . A solid single off that release is the song "Real Good Thing." Marc will be showcasing many of these original tunes from Keep Coming Back in concert at The Intersection in Grand Rapids MI on Wednesday November 19. Marc's southern origins draw immediate parallels to singers like O.V. Wright and Al Green, and, to that end, people like Doyle Bramhall and Lee McBee. Marc was initially spotted singing with Solomon Burke at a Wilson Pickett tribute dinner at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by none other than Ahmet Ertegun who immediately signed young Broussard to perform at the Montreux Jazz Festival. Marc also performed at half time of the 2008 NBA All Star Game in New Orleans. He is known for his philanthropic endeavors as well, building homes with Habitat for Humanity, undertaking a tour of U.S. military installations in 2007, and selling bootlegs to benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina.
