Artist's Description

Singer, songwriter, musician. His talent, bred in the days where R & B music was pirated, and filtered into less pulsating strains of more, supposedly acceptable white bread musical air waves of that era. Not! The youth of America, in that time of national struggle, while still trying to accept music presented to them under false pretenses, could not fight off the desire to hear music that could stimulate, and move their souls to the sounds of the unrest of thoughts, and sexuality welling up inside them.

His life was both a not so unique struggle, and unique struggle from beginning to end. His music is the legacy he’s left to us, and it’s a reminder to people of how the intense longing and searching of one’s self can be turned into gold by expressing it in the arts. In Marvin Gaye’s case it was in his music. I met him once. Sparkle in his eyes, smooth golden brown skin, gorgeous smile…. he was just beautiful.
