It was no secret before then, going back to those lucky witnesses who heard him belt "Johnny B. Goode" onstage at age 5 while sitting in with his father's band. Throughout his life, Broussard has been tapped as a talent to watch. Marcs song Home was successful at radio and catapulted him onto the national touring stage.

Most recently, Marc released an independent Christmas Album titled, Magnolias & Mistletoe. The original song, Almost Christmas received radio play word wide. Marcs next project is a charitable rhythm and blues covers record to be released summer 2016. He will be donating fifty percent of the proceeds to City of Refuge.
