Music Capitol Records LLC (MCR),was established in 2006 by Cedric Berry and Douglas Mersier. The conception of MCR came after a visit to Detroit’s Hitsville USA.The two were inspired by Motown’s spirit of love and ambition to make great music that would eventually change the world.
MCR specializes in music of every genre bringing fresh and innovative ideas to the forefront of the industry. It is our mission to heal and unite the hearts and minds of the people through music and entertainment by the enlightenment of love and peace. On “The Meditation of Thine Heart” CD, a series of musical recordings, also MCR’s first album release expresses the company's deep sincerity to develop people morally through music and entertainment.
Music is what man uses to impose his will upon the universe. Therefore it must play a very significant role in each of our lives. For music is the soundtrack of our lives, from toddler, to teen, to adulthood, music travels with us along the course of time, through times of triumph, times of failure, in moments of passion and in moments of despair. Music touches every facet of our lives. MCR seeks to create the music you live by, dance to, love with, pray to, cry and laugh because of, reaching the very depths of spirit and soul, changing who you are for the better. This is the power…this is the purpose of music.
Our objective is simply to create a business entity that enables our community of staff to produce, distribute and perform musical works to be marketed through digital satellite networks, internet access and live performances.
With this mindset we are ready to embark into a new territory and change the face and morale of music in the city of Detroit, State of Michigan, United States of America, and the world so far as we know it. One day, one record at a time.
