Marcus Kentrell Brown, known by his stage name Kentrell, is an American R&B & pop singer. Born in Mississippi[1] and raised in Chicago, Kentrell made his musical debut with the release of his first single, "Encore," from his upcoming album with Jive Records, U Will Believe.

Kentrell refers to his music as pop/soul, which he says is a blend of his musical upbringing in the church with secular soul and pop music.[1] He compares his sound to artists like Michael Jackson, Usher and R. Kelly. Brown had his first showcase with Jive Records around August 2008. He also has been working with producers such as Brian Michael Cox and KP & Malay, who produced “Encore”. His debut album with Jive is supposed to be released in the spring of 2010.[1]
