Marcus Canty Sings "A Song For Mama"

by at . Comments

Welcome to the final seven, Marcus Canty.

Let's be honest: it will take a heart of stone to vote out this X Factor contestant this week, following his emotional rendition of "A Song for Mama," a Boyz II Men single dedicated to Canty's mother, who was dabbing her eyes in the audience throughout the rendition.

How did this performance stack up against competitors such as Chris Rene? Watch his unique take on The Beatles and then compare it below to Canty's heartfelt cover...


The Song Dedicated To Marcus Mother; Brought Tears To My Eyes!!! As A Mother That Was Awesome!! Great Job Marcus!!!!


I don't think Marcus Canty did that great last week either. He hit some bad notes when he went higher. I think they were nice to him because he has been having trouble with his throat, and he has been singing through it. I can appreciate that.


hope you make it Marcus i love all of your performance:]


awww that's so sweet and nice


Marcus your performance was great like always! Keep up the good work


Canty - this was not a good look or performance...Not good at all. Too bad because I have liking you a little more each week.. I don't understand the high praise from the judges. Hard to cut a guy down in front of his mama I guess.
