MARVIN GAYE (born Marvin Pentz Gay Jr. in Washington, U.S.) was an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, who helped to shape the sound of Motown in the 1960s, first as an in-house session player and later as a solo artist with a string of hits, earning him the nicknames “Prince of Motown” and “Prince of Soul”.

Gaye’s Motown hits include “Ain’t That Peculiar” (1965), “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” (1968), “What’s Going On” (1971) and “Let’s Get It On” (1973); he also recorded duets with Mary Wells, Kim Weston, Diana Ross, and Tammi Terrell.

In 1982, MARVIN GAYE released “SEXUAL HEALING“, a song recorded from his first post-Motown album, titled “Midnight Love”.

“SEXUAL HEALING” has been described as a Post-Disco, Soul and Funk song, that won two Grammy Awards – including “Best Male R&B Vocal Performance” and “Best R&B Instrumental Performance” – and reached Number 1 on R&B charts and the Top of Sales charts, all over the world.
