Briefly about Marvin

When Marvin was six years old, his first grade teacher told him he could go to a school closer to his home in inner-city Washington, D.C. to avoid a long bus ride across town every day. Hearing that, Marvin promptly transferred himself to a new school. That take-charge, "do-what-needs-to- be-done" attitude obviously is an integral part of Marvin's personality. His music is simply further evidence of that trait. He sees a need and finds a way to meet it.

Marvin has nine recordings to his credit and two video presentations. As always, there's a touch of jazz, a bit of hip-hop, some light pop and, of course, the traditional gospel music foundation upon which his music rests. He has made sure his projects provide something special for every listening ear while maintaining the integrity of his call as an exceptional artist.

One industry insider stated, "Marvin Matthews is the music industry's best-kept secret." That's high praise indeed for someone who once thought he wasn't cut out for a career in music. Marvin initially planned a career as an attorney. He pursued the study of law at St. John's College in Santa Fe, New Mexico before transferring to Wayland Baptist University in Plainview, Texas. "Everybody I knew as a kid growing up could sing or play an instrument," he says, "so I didn't think I was anything out of the ordinary." But Marvin is hardly ordinary.

He began studying music at age eight. His credits then include the following: he started the first gospel choir at his junior high school in D.C.; toured Romania at 18; was featured soloist with the world-famous Spurrlows; sang contemporary gospel music in opera houses throughout Europe; electrified the Philippines on Martin After Dark the number one rated television show in that country, and the list goes on.

Marvin has performed in some of the finest venues in America, toured Korea, Japan, China, and all of Europe.  He has led corporate leaders and congregations in various conferences including:
M.O. P.S. (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) Convention
OCEA (Ohio Christian Educators Association)
J & J Music Conferences---for music industry professionals
The National Childrens' Pastors Conferences
