MARVIN GAYE-BY CHRIS WADE by 14bigvic MARVIN GAYE-BY CHRIS WADE by 14bigvic
COLOR PENCIL DRAWING ON BOARD-DONE IN 1999-(born April 2, 1939, Washington, D.C., U.S. died April 1, 1984, Los Angeles, Calif.) U.S. singer and songwriter. Son of a Pentecostal minister, he learned to sing in church. He signed a contract with Harvey Fuqua (b. 1924) in 1959 and followed him to Motown, where he played drums on early Smokey Robinson hits. His own hits (from 1962) climaxed in "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" (1967). He paired with female singers, including Tammi Terrell (1946 70), in songs by Nick Ashford (b. 1943) and Valerie Simpson (b. 1948). With What's Goin' On? (1971) his songs became more socially conscious. Troubled in his personal relationships and finances, he reemerged in 1982 with "Sexual Healing." He was shot to death by his father in a quarrel.
