Excerpt: Marvin Pentz Gay, Jr. (April 2, 1939 - April 1, 1984), better known by his stage name Marvin Gaye, was an American singer-songwriter and musician with a four-octave vocal range. 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 Records subsidiary of Motown Records. After starting off as a session drummer, Gaye ranked as the labels top-selling solo artist during the sixties. Because of solo hits such as How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You), Aint That Peculiar, I Heard It Through the Grapevine and his duet singles with singers such as Mary Wells and Tammi Terrell, he was crowned The Prince of Motown and The Prince of Soul. His work in the early and mid-1970s, including the albums Whats Going On, Lets Get It On, and I Want You, helped influence the quiet storm, urban adult contemporary, and slow jam genres. After a self-imposed European exile in the early eighties, Gaye returned on the 1982 Grammy-Award winning hit, Sexual Healing and the Midnight Love album before his death. Gaye was shot dead by his father on April 1, 1984. He was posthumously inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. In 2008, the American music magazine Rolling Stone ranked Gaye at number 6 on its list of The Greatest Singers of All Time, and ranked at number 18 on 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. Marvin Pentz Gay, Jr. was born on April 2, 1939 at Freedmans Hospital in Washington...
