Hall currently serves at Willow Creek Community Church in the worship department. He is best known for his work with the Gaither Vocal Band. While singing at his church in Anderson, Marshall was approached by a local producer and asked to sing for a project at Gaither Studios. He never really expected to actually end up singing for a living, but about a year after graduating from college, he quit his job at a furniture store and began working as a studio singer full-time. As a session vocalist, Marshall traveled frequently from Indiana to Chicago, Orlando to Louisville and to Nashville singing background vocals on records and jingles for several national clients, including McDonald's, Long John Silver's and Head and Shoulders.
During one session for Bill Gaither, Marshall was asked to join the Homecoming artists in Memphis, TN for a video taping. Subsequent videos followed for Marshall, including tapings in Indianapolis and New York City at Carnegie Hall. He also found a spot as a back-up singer on projects for recording artists John Tesh, Clay Walker and Carman, among others. He has written songs for several Gaither videos, as well as for Salvador, Point of Grace, fellow Gaither Vocal Band member David Phelps and the Vocal Band.
In January, 2004, the newly-weds life would change again when Marshall received a call from Bill Gaither asking him to call Guy Penrod. From this phone call, Marshall began a one and a half month audition process to become the new baritone for the Gaither Vocal Band. He was a part of three of the Vocal Band's studio albums including Give It Away, Lovin' Life and Christmas Gaither Vocal Band Style. Marshall has been on the road with the Gaither Vocal Band from then until 2009 when he decided to leave the group to pursue a solo career and join the Mountain Park Community Church in Phoenix, AZ as worship pastor. Since 2009, Marshall has re-joined the GVB to fill in as Lead (2010, when Michael English recovered from back surgery) and Baritone (2013, when Mark Lowry broke his femur).
September 9, 2012 he began serving as Worship Leader at Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, CA where David Jeremiah serves as senior pastor.
In 2014, Marshall moved to the Chicago area and now serves as a worship leader at Willow Creek Community Church.
