Mark Lowry, an American singer, comedian, and songwriter, has a beautiful voice and a lighthearted personality. He is most known for co-writing the song Mary, Did You Know? and being a Gaither Vocal Band member. He began his career in the entertainment industry as a musician before moving on to other projects.
Since he was a child, the Houston native has had an uncanny ability to make people chuckle. As a result, he began his career as a comedian in 1988 with Mark Lowry's video: My First Comedy Video. He has become a well-known comedian who has made people laugh at his jokes rather than at himself.
Despite all the gay suspicions that accompany him, Lowry, the self-described Poster Boy for Hyperactivity, has found the love of his life along with his successful career journey.
The 63-Year-Old Comedian: Not Married But Dating History
Lowry has dedicated more than half of his life to making people laugh. He is blessed with the power to make people laugh and cry at the same time. Despite having a sizable fan base, his love life hasn't been as successful as he'd hoped. But the question is whether he did it voluntarily or has him his own other reasons.
In a January 2009 interview with Modbee, he was asked about his marital life and children. He hesitantly replied that although being 50 years old, he had never married and had no children. According to him,
"No, I never did get married. You've got to learn to live with the cards you're dealt. (The apostle) Paul was right; there's something positive about staying single."
He did, however, appear to have made a wonderful buddy who he might love for the rest of his life. Chonda Pierce, a fellow Christian comedian with whom he has appeared on stage and has a wonderful vibe, is one of his buddies.
The coworker was seen on the red carpet at the 2013 Dove Awards, where they characterized each other as "close friends." However, most love sparks with friendship, as was the case with both the comics.
Perrie appeared to have worked out a way to face her anguish with her long-time buddy after the death of her author-husband, David Pierce, in July 2014 from a severe heart attack.
In 2015, the two well-known figures in the realm of comedy began dating. And the comic couple's dating rumor was verified after they uploaded funny images on social media.
She did, however, have something to say about one comic dating another.
"I don't think a comic dating a comic would be a good idea. It would be spontaneous combustion."

Despite dating in 2015, the duo has kept mum about their romance. They are still spotted creating videos for Lowry's channel on YouTube, though. All we can hope for now is that this continues for the long haul.
Gay Rumors Making Rounds For Lowry
Lowry has been the target of gay rumors owing to his outgoing personality and attempts to keep his personal life private. However, it is natural for the general public to believe so as he is the age where people like spending time with their families, and the comic is yet single.
And this is how he became implicated in the gay rumors in the first place. Many people speculated that the lonely, single older man might be gay. Even though he does not have a wife, he appears to value his time with his brother's and sister's families.
Mark Lowry's Career And Net Worth
Liberty Baptist College, today branded as Liberty University, was where the singer-turned-comedian attended college. He used to perform there alongside David Musselman and Charles Hughes. And there would be a long pause in the act during which Lowry would entertain the audience with a monologue. He suddenly noticed that his speech was eliciting laughter from the audience. That's when he concluded he should pursue a stand-up comedy career.
But Mark possessed more than just a sense of humor; he also had music coursing through his blood.
Mary, Did You Know?, a famous Christmas song sung by more than thirty singers, was written by Lowry. He has also spent 13 years as a baritone with the Gaither Vocal Band's ensemble (1988-2001). Following that, he began a solo career, releasing songs such as A Hymns Collection and I Love to Tell the Story.
His supporters admire him so immensely that he still does music and comedy shows all around the United States. In terms of his net worth, he is estimated to be worth approximately $10 million.
