Clifton and Marie, born and raised in South London, England, are a married couple who love God, each other and their 3 talented children. Through music, their desire is to share what having a relationship with God is all about and how that relationship should be reflected in personal relationships, now and in the future. Clif and Marie are praise and worship leaders at their local church and are renowned for their exuberant praise and passion for worship.
Growing up around music and church choirs was the start of their love for music. This birthed the desire to share their passion for God. They started singing and playing in their local churches at young ages, leading praise and worship and playing music.
They have the ability to impart their gifting and passion for vocals and keyboards. Described as a breath of fresh air to the ministry of music, their gift has certainly opened doors and has already taken them around the world; sharing the Gospel in song. They have ministered in places such as the USA, Jamaica, Germany, Italy, Poland and Hungary and they are looking forward to ministering in song in many other nations around the world.
A beautiful marriage in 1998 was the start of their journey and they continue to share their relationship with each other and their children.
They are excited about the release of their debut album ‘If Only’, which is an upbeat sound of urban Christian Gospel. The album expresses their love for God, their passion for music, praise and worship. The album comes on the back of the release of their debut single ‘I Will Sing’ in 2011, which reached Premier Radio’s playlist and continues to receive airplay on this and other stations.
Throughout the years their love for music was influenced by Thomas Whitfield, Commissioned, The Winans, Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin, Yolanda Adams (who they named their eldest daughter after) and the Clarke Sisters. This led them to become accomplished vocalists and Clifton, an accomplished and sought after keyboard player.
Always seeking to give back to the community Clif&Marie have mentored other young musicians and singers in the church and in the community.
