Marky Mark biography

Mark Robert Michael Wahlberg was born in the poor working class district of Boston known as Dorchester. He was born on June 5th, 1971; the youngest of nine children, with siblings Arthur, Jim, Paul, Robert, Tracey, Michelle, Debbie, and Donnie. His childhood was rough. He dropped out of highschool at the age of 14 and up til the age of 18, he was involved in several cases of stealing and drugdealing. In the late 1980's he finally got himself into the music industry. In fact he was an original member of the smashing boyband New Kids On The Block, together with five other guys including his brother Donnie Wahlberg. But Mark backed out early on that project, before the big success. It was his departure that eventually allowed Joe McIntyre to take his place as the 5th member of the group

Mark founded his own project with a group of dancers calling themself the "Funky Bunch". "Marky Mark feat. the Funky Bunch" released several hitsingles and one album in the early 1990's. The most famous single was Good Vibrations featuring diva Loleatta Holloway, released in the spring of 1992. Produced by his brother Donnie, it was #1 on The Billboard Hot 100, later becoming certified as a Platinum single. The second single, Wildside, peaked at #5 on Billboards Hot Singles Sales chart and at #10 on The Billboard Hot 100. It was certified as a Gold single. It was based on a sample taken from the Walk on the Wildside by Lou Reed.

Marky Mark opened for the New Kids on the Block during their last tour. His second LP, You Gotta Believe, wasn't as successful as the prior, yielding only a minor hit single in the title track. Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch even had their own video game in the Marky Mark: Make My Video game series on the Sega Mega-CD.

Wahlberg was known for his impressive physique. He first displayed it in the Good Vibrations music video and most prominently in a series of underwear ads for Calvin Klein shot by Herb Ritts, following it with Calvin Klein television ads. He also made a workout video titled The Marky Mark Workout: Form... Focus... Fitness

Wahlberg then began an acting career, making his debut in the 1993 TV movie "The Substitute". His big screen debut came the next year, with the Danny DeVito feature "Renaissance Man".

In 1993, he teamed up with Joe Paquette, Prince Ital Joe feat. Marky Mark was born. Together they released many eurodance hits, among them Happy People, United, Life in the Streets, and Babylon.

Then he went back to his solo carreer, still produced by Alex Christensen and Frank Peterson, releasing in 1995 No Mercy (The Fist Of The Tiger). He was featured on That's The Way I Like It by One Love. In 1996, he released Hey DJ. The next year, came Best Of My Love and Feel The Vibe (produced by Toni Cottura and Bülent Aris).

Nowadays Mark Wahlberg has worked his way up in Hollywood, starring in bigger movies like Perfect Storm (2000), Planet Of The Apes (2001), The Italian Job (2003) and more recently Ted (2012) and Transformers (2014).
