Marc Dorsey came onto the scene in a big way in 1994 with a soulful rendition of The Stylistics "People Make The World Go Round" in the opening scene of Spike Lee's Crooklyn. The track was also released as a single and reached #65 on the R&B charts. Dorsey continued to establish himself through his relationship with Spike Lee and the two collaborated again on Spike Lee's Clockers with Drosey's "People in Search of a Life" and with Get on the Bus, on which Dorsey's song "Welcome Back" was released.
However, it was not until 1999 when Marc Dorsey released his debut album, Crave. The album was released on the Jive label and featured the single "If You Really Want To Know." The track reached #56 on the R&B charts in 1999. The title track of the album was also featured on the soundtrack of the movie The Wood.
Since then, Marc Dorsey has taken a step back from his work in the music industry to focus on his family and to raise his kids.
