A few years ago, I remember sitting on my couch as X Factor aired its auditions. There was this 20 year old guy that flashed across the TV & began sharing that his mother gave him 2 years after graduation to shoot his shot at music before he would have to go to school & get a “real job.”

Marcus Canty.A name I knew I would remember forever. He’s not exactly a “no name,” but he definitely isn’t on a mainstream as I feel he should be. But forget the rules, he’s an A-List Celebrity according to what Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ โ€ผ๏ธ

I remember falling in love with him immediately. His energy was contagious & positive vibes vibrated through the TV. He was just the guy to love….I was just hoping he could sing.

His audition song was “I Wish” by Stevie Wonder & he nailed it. L.A. Reid said Marcus reminded him of a young Bobby Brown & Simon Cowell said that Marcus reminded him of Usher Raymond. Both of which are A1 & official artists. The performance was emotional, and I promise my eyes sweat every time I watch it. “I’m not crying, you’re crying.

As the season progressed, and he continued to grow as a singer, I grew to love him more.

His rendition of”All my Life” was K-Ci & Jo Jo was flawless at the judge’s house episode & made me fall in love knowing that I was single. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

Catch him singing “I’m Going Down” by Mary J. Blige & he makes you feel every word of the song. It made me hurt like I was the one experiencing the break up. ๐Ÿ˜†

Though he didn’t win, I continued following him on all his platforms & I promise “In & Out” featuring Wale is my favorite song!

๐Ÿ“–Meet Author Devona Boone

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ today we are featuring a good friend and a powerful influential woman, Author Devona Boone.

Stephy Says ๐Ÿ’‹ here’s why I decided to feature Author Devona Boone–she’s astounding! The same grace & elegance she posseses doing business, is the same smile & energy you receive when you see her outside the office/business setting. While some would desire sympathy from a painful past, Devona embraces the circumstances & draws strength from her pain. She contributes hardships as a reason she’s so strong & powerful today.

I admire Devona because while empowering herself, she isn’t selfish, and reaches out in the community to empower other young ladies.
