Biography


Since only a kid, Marques Houston has been pushing his luck in Hollywood as a child star and a raunchy singer before he finally succeeded in making a transition as a mature musician. Title of the new album says it all; through 'Veteran' he tried to show people how he had stepped into a larger phase of life. Released on March 20, the 11 tracks album told everyday stories such as relationships, break-ups and love songs, something that he missed in the previous two albums. The first single 'Favorite Girl' was released in 2006 prior the album and the second single 'Circle' will be released in April 2007. He hoped to gain attention from his fans through this one since it is claimed his 'personal' song.

Born on August 4, 1981 in LA, California to the couple Michael and Carolyn Houston, Marques Barrett Houston inherited the African and Mexican blood. As a kid, he had been dreaming big of becoming a celebrity and thus with his childhood mates Jerome "Romeo" Jones and Don "Half Pint" Santos, he formed the band Immature. It was not some cheesy band that rubbed off after sometime, but these kids were pretty determined to make it through to Hollywood. Unfortunately, in the early of the career as a band, Immature had to lose one of its members, Don, due to his parents' demand to quit. Houston as the vanguard of the band quickly found a replacement. Kelton "LDB" Kessee was recruited as the third member who was about to see the first taste of success from the band. Starting by hooking up with Afro-American producer Chris Stokes and signing a deal with Virgin Records, the band released debut single 'On Our Worst Behavior' on September 22, 1992. It received a moderate reception but the band still managed to produce 3 more albums as Immature.
