Who Is Mark Medlock?
Mark Leon Medlock is a well known German pop, soul and dance singer born on July 9, 1978 in Frankfurt, West Germany to a German mother and an African American father. He is well known for winning the season 4 of German version of Pop Idol, “Deutschland sucht den Superstar (DSDS).
Medlock’s father, Larry Medlock who is from Georgia, USA were one of the people who influenced him to go into singing. By the time he was six years old, Medlock had already started singing gospel music in church.
Soul singers, James Brown and Barry White were part of the few people he was influenced by as a young singer.
Medlock, who was born into a semi poor family had a difficult childhood and it even became worse when his mother started struggling with cancer in the late 1990s. He had to drop out of school at some point just so he can take care of her.
She eventually died in 2000 followed by his father in 2002 due to heart attack. So he took up menial jobs such as a swamper, garbage remover, gardener, etc. Fortunately for him, music came to his rescue early enough and has been surving now mainly as a singer.
Medlock became a household name in Germany and beyond after he contested and won the season 4 of “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” in 2007. Following his win, he became the first multiracial winner.
His potential was spotted by many right from the beginning of the competition and didn’t disappoint as he went on to win in spectacular fashion. He won by a whopping 78.02% of the total votes cast. Interestingly, throughout the competition, Medlock was never in the bottom three, a feat achieved by only one person besides him.
He quickly took advantage of the fame he got from the competition to release his debut album that year titled “Mr. Lonely”. Since then, he has gone on to release about 7 albums as of 2023.
They include, Cloud Dancer (2008), Dreamcatcher (2007), Im Nebel (2014), Rainbow’s End (2010), My World (2011), etc.
