“Knowing Marque during the MMC days — as my little brother – I knew he was hugely talented with a passion for the arts, and a passion for life,” Godboldo told People. “But it was more recently while collaborating on an MMC related project that I got to know Marque as a man.”

“He was so excited to be a part of something that would encourage young people to pursue their dreams and a life of purpose,” Godboldo added. “Marque was a beautiful spirit, that although had endured so much, only wanted to spread love and inspiration.
