|A native of Toronto, Mark Masri is the son of a pastor and a Gospel singer. His own vocal talent was apparent at a very young age, and at five he began singing in his father’s church. Immediately embraced and nurtured by the Gospel community, Mark performed throughout his childhood.
In 2008 and 2009 Mark toured with America’s romantic piano sensation, Jim Brickman, and was featured on Brickman’s PBS concert special, BEAUTIFUL WORLD. The Brickman tour was the Canadian singer’s first foray in front of US audiences, and the overwhelming response was unanimous. The Boston Daily Standard described his performance as “melting the hearts of female audience members like chocolate in the palm of warm hands.”
LA VOCE, Mark’s first international release, is a collection of romantic, soulful, orchestral pop. Mark wraps his velvety, smoky voice around 14 classic and original songs in six languages. Mark’s holiday release, Christmas Is... partnered him with frequent collaborator, Jim Brickman, and Intimo explores his softer side with intimate Italian love songs.
