Marva King

Born in Flint, Michigan, Marva King is most known for her starring role in the 75 plus million dollar-grossing DVD, “Diary of a Mad Black Woman”. This production launched the Massive Mega Million dollar career of its writer/producer Tyler Perry. In Diary, King plays the spurned, attractive, feisty and vengeful housewife Helen. King created her own comedic dialogue in this production. As of August 2010, the former Prince and New Power Generation singer is embarking upon a brand new venture, an entertainment/cooking show for television. Despite the massive success of her stage debut, King has far more to her stellar resume than just Diary. King started her career very early on, performing since the age of four, and became accomplished at quite a young age. She is heard on albums by Phil Collins, Tupac Shakur, Prince, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Jimmy Cliff, Chaka Khan, and Lionel Richie, just to name a few. She co-wrote the Whispers’ single, “Innocent”, which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Hot Singles Chart. “Innocent” sold over 1 Million copies world wide. She has performed live with artists like Lenny Kravitz, Seal, and Will-I-Am, and has toured with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Prince, and The Isley Brothers.
