At the moment he is living abroad in England and works for an organization called Firvale Community Hub his role is to lead the Sheffield Roma Network with his colleague Tomas Tancos.

He came in Czech Slovakia Got Talent especially to show his passion and love to music. In his own words, he’s a born musician and also he believes that star should not look upon other stars but should be special in their own way.

During his performance he totally engaged the audience. The judges were also impressed, especially Jakub Prachař who immediately declared as Marek’s first fan and ask him to perform the second song on the judges table!
