Marvin Gaye - Songbook With Friends

Prince Of Soul. Marvin Pentz Gay Jr. born April 2, 1939 in Washington, D.C., was more than just a musician; he was a pioneer who left an indelible mark on the world of music. With a career that spanned decades, Marvin Gaye is celebrated as one of the greatest soul singers and songwriters of all time. His contributions to the Motown sound, his social consciousness, and his timeless music inspire audiences around the world. In the 1960s, he became a soulful crooner on Tamla-Motown Records, where he added an ‚e‘ to his name to dispel rumors of his sexuality. He created timeless duets with Tammi Terrell, including ”Ain‘t No Mountain High Enough.“ In the late 1960s, his music became more socially engaged. ”What‘s Going On“ from 1971 addressed war, racism and the environment. His voice was incomparable, and his live performance of ”The Star-Spangled Banner“ in 1983 is legendary. Gaye‘s personal life was marked by turmoil and tragedy, and he was shot by his father in 1984. Nevertheless, his musical legacy lives on and inspires artists worldwide. He received numerous posthumous honors, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and inductions into various halls of fame. ”SONGBOOK WITH FRIENDS“ is a collection of his most beautiful songs, some interpreted in extraordinary versions by other artists.
