Whether they're leading worship on a Sunday morning or giving a concert on a Saturday night, Marcel & Janelle are passionate about engaging listeners in an experience that brings people together and uses music to make a way.
The Denver-based duo is the brainchild of husband and wife team, Marcel Anthony & Cynthia Janelle Arocha. Both have long resumes as professional musicians and worship leaders, each having performed with different internationally recognized artists (Hillsong Worship, ResLife Worship, Tierra) before meeting, marrying, and collaborating together.
With well-crafted songs reminiscent of Gungor or JohnnySwim, Marcel & Janelle create a style all their own using innovative melodies, soulful rhythms and distinct vocal harmonies. This fresh mix of Indie/Soul music - their blend of rhythmic, world-beat soul, and heartfelt worship - creates a sound that moves beyond the boundaries of church walls. Whether it’s a concert hall, coffee shop, brewery or sanctuary, the music and message that Marcel & Janelle bring remain the same. Their positive vibe, entertaining show, and original tunes are just a few of the the reasons that the ever-growing crowds at concerts and churches across the country are as diverse as the music.
