Detroit, MI — Detroit’s Charles Martin has been singing backup for gospel recording artists like Fred Hammond, Deitrick Haddon and Stellar Award winning Voices of Unity.  Equipped with a skillfully produced, edgy 11- track project, Charles Martin is stepping to the front to release his debut CD Mary’s Son .

Martin has teamed up with Detroit R&B producer Chardyroc to deliver an electrifying collection of urban inspirational songs with a universal appeal. Martin’s innovative sound captures the essence of today’s culture while remaining true to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

With the release of Martin’s independent debut project, the songwriter and actor seeks to reach an audience not currently filling the church pews.  All eleven songs have a unique sound with the purpose of giving glory to God, capturing the hearts and spirits of the non-believer as well as the believer.   Why the title Mary’s Son?  “Mary is the mother of Jesus who came to save the world,” Martin explains.  “My birth mother’s name is Mary and Mary showed me the way to Jesus. I am Mary’s Son.”
