Running: AMOK Music Director Derrick “D. Marq” Smith (Jan. 11, 1973-Dec.7, 2012)

On December 7, 2012, our beloved music director for our 2011 tour of the stage play “Running: AMOK”, Derrick “D. Marq” Smith passed away at the age of 33. D. Marq coordinated the music performance by the band for our show and was a rising star in the Washington DC music scene, heading his own music label MellowMusic. While a gifted musician and producer, D. Marq was also a stellar singer and songwriter, penning many songs for his own CD and for other artists.

D. Marq will be tremendously missed. To learn more about his legacy, visit his Facebook fan page.
