1980s CCM ARTIST DIES
Kenny Marks, a popular artist often played on Christian Radio like ours passed away recently, aged 67. He leaves a wonderful music legacy of great contemporary songs recorded in the 1980s when his tours and albums were topping the Christian music charts.
Kenny Marks was one of the mainstay artists in CCM from his debut album in 1982 ’til the end of the decade. Songs such as “Make It Right”, “The Party’s Over” and “Right Where You Are” were regularly in circulation on Christian radio and are still considered by many today to be CCM classics. His music had an AOR/Bryan Adams vibe to them which carved him a niche in the industry. He continued to release albums up ’til 1995, exploring a more melodic ballad driven sound.
