The Backstory

Chicago’s own Christopher LeMark has been a voice in his hometown since 2000. Originally, he began his music journey as a CHH representative under the name Focus, which he would evolve into a playwright, a live concert producer and a public speaker. His music features a dialogue that encourages men and women who deal with rejection, identity and abandonment issues. His approach is unique, fresh and relatable. From pain, transition and triumph, he has a sound that resonates with the culture. Offstage, LeMark would suffer in silence from PTSD due to a traumatic childhood. After taking a break, seeking therapy, LeMark launched a new initiative in Coffee, Hip-Hop & Mental Health. The goal with CHHAMH is to encourage the community to unpack and rebuild their minds through clinical therapy. #NormalizeTherapy
