Moment of Silence: Marvin Gaye

Marvin Pentz Gay, Jr.[1] (April 2, 1939–April 1, 1984) — stage name Marvin Gaye — was an American singer-songwriter and instrumentalist with a three-octave vocal range.[2] Starting as a member of the doo-wop group The Moonglows in the late fifties, he ventured into a solo career after the group disbanded in 1960 signing with the Tamla subsidiary of Motown Records. After starting off as a session drummer, Gaye ranked as the label’s top-selling solo artist during the sixties.
