Marc Cohn Values His Family and Career
Singer/songwriter Marc Cohn loves his job, even if that means he has to travel and spend time away from his wife, television journalist Elizabeth Vargas, and their two sons Zachary Raphael, 5 ½, and Samuel Wyatt, 2. In fact, he believes "that it is important for your kids to know that you love your job," even if it comes at the price of him missing his sons. The 49-year-old "really value[s] both things," adding that he does the "best to balance everything" and is thankful that "I’m actually home more than most fathers." When Marc isn’t able to be home, the Walking in Memphis singer uses i-Chat so "I can see them and they can see me," and it even causes the family some laughter along the way.
On this past tour I was talking to my five-year-old son through this and when he saw my hotel room on his screen, he was like, ‘Daddy how come you’re place looks like a dump?’ [And I said] because this is how your Dad makes a living [laughs].
Marc is also father to Max, 17, and Emily, 13, from a previous relationship.
