Born and raised in Baltimore and now living in New Jersey, he was signed to the New York label 3rd Street/J Records, working with producer Davis. After contributing to the soundtrack of 2001's Dr. Dolittle 2, Mario released his eponymous debut album in July, 2002.
After touring America with other young artists, Mario returned with the Turning Point album in December, 2004. The first single, Let Me Love You, became Mario's first US number one and an international hit, and the album's fresh sounds and often surprising lyrics introduced him to a wider audience.
With a range of creative music videos, plans of attending college and a part in the coming-of-age drama Destination Fame, Mario is an already well-established star even before the end of his teens.
