Who is Marvin Gaye

Marvin Gaye (April 2, 1939 â€“ April 1, 1984), born Marvin Pentz Gay, Jr.,[1] was an American singer-songwriter and musician whose career spanned more than three decades. Born and raised in Washington, D.C., he was the son of a storefront minister of a local Pentecostal church sect and grew up singing gospel in church revivals as a young child. Gaye branched out into secular music as a teenager, joining the doo-wop group The Marquees, after returning from an honorable discharge from the United States Air Force, before the group was hired by Harvey Fuqua to be Harvey & the Moonglows. Following the band's separation in 1960, Gaye began working as a session drummer for the Detroit music label Anna, before signing with Motown's Tamla label in 1961, adding an "e" to his surname. Gaye was one of many who shaped the sound and success of Motown in the 1960s, becoming the company's top-selling solo artist of that decade with a string of hits, including "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)", "Ain't That Peculiar", "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" and his duet singles with singers such as Mary Wells and Tammi Terrell. Because of this, Gaye was given the titles "The Prince of Motown" and "The Prince of Soul".[2][3]
