Happy Birthday to the one and only Marvin Gaye who would have turned 77 today! Talk about an incredible talent! He was born Marvin Pentz Gay Jr. (April 2, 1939 – April 1, 1984). Out of ALL the jams he had, AND THERE WERE MANY, Distant Lover HAS To be my favorite! The Live Version!!!! OMG! I LOVE “I Want You” And Sooooo many more! (Chime in on our FB page)
He was a legendary singer, songwriter, and musician. One could arguable say that Gaye helped shape the sound of Motown in the 1960s! As a solo artist and even duet recordings with legends like Mary Wells, Kim Weston, and Tammi Terrell, later earning the titles “Prince of Motown” and “Prince of Soul.”
