Its beginningsGay Marvin Pentz Jr. is born on April 2nd, 1939 with Washington, cd.. Wire of Pasteur, he attends the church regularly, where he is exerted with the music while singing and as a practitioner the piano and the battery. Thus the music became a loophole with the nightmarish life which reigns then in its hearth (his/her father beat it regularly). During its adolescence, it integrates several groups like The Rainbows, The Moonglows or The Marquees. It will make thus the meeting of Harvey Fuqua, a producer who will have a strong influence on him. However Marvin Gaye is detached little by little from these groups by recording some titles which will never obtain success. The catch occurs in 1961, the year when he manages to be signed (as a beater) by the recording company Motown and meets the largest stars of the drunk . The owner of the label, Berry Gordy, takes it under his wing (helped by the fact that he married Anna, the proper sister of Berry Gordy).
The rise towards gloryMarvin begins with the exit from simple the Can I Get has Witness , Hitch Hike and Pride And Joy . But it is in 1964, year of exit of its first album, that success explodes. He collaborates thereafter with Tammi Terrell and Diana Ross inter alia. The United States is allured by this new artist full with charisma equipped with a mélodieuse voice. In 1968, the very famous song I Heard It Through The Grapevine taken again Gladys Knight & the Pips will be at the head charts.
The beginning of an endAfter the death of Tammi Terrell of a brain tumor in 1970, Marvin Gaye starts a depression. After long months of loneliness and reflection, it returns with new the opus What' S Going One in 1971. In this Album-concept, it carries out the analysis of its time and touches on sensitive topics the such fight for the civic rights, the Guerre of the Vietnam, whose her Frankie brother had made him account after being returned about it, as well as the ecology. This very innovative album for the time enables him to get rid of its image of sex symbol and to be regarded as one of the large type-setters of Soul. In spite of the initial refusal of the founder of the recording company Motown , his/her brother-in-law Berry Gordy, the album leaves and becomes traditional.
Two years after, Marvin Gaye obtains to a new success with Let' S Get It One , disc moved by its connection extraconjugale impassioned with a named young woman Janis Hunter (it is 17 years old whereas it has 34 of them). He undertakes in this work to associate the carnal extase with a bringing together with God; thus this disc, with the first access, disrespectful in a context of puritan America is in fact the expression of a very major spiritual faith.
During Years 1970, the singer publishes several albums. One can especially retain Here My Dear whose genesis is particular: his wife Anna Gordy Gaye (of a few years its elder), exceeded by the double life of Marvin Gaye, asks for the divorce. After long negotiations, the judge having to rule orders to the singer to carry out an album whose perceived advance will be transferred with his wife. Having first of all wanted to carry out a surface disc, the artist will publish a complex work where it will reconsider in detail his surging marriage. In 1981, Marvin Gaye sees a series of recordings (of which demonstrations) published without its agreement under the title In Our Lifetime what will cause the final rupture with Motown . It will be reported that Motown modified the title of the album by retracting the question mark, causing the ire of the singer)
Having signed with the recording company CBS records, the artist leaves for Ostend in Belgium. There, having to deal with competition of new stars such as Rick James, it will call upon Harvey Fuqua and Gordon Banks to realize its album Midnight Coils from which is resulting the tube Sexual Healing , which will be taken again many times, in particular by Ben Harper. He turns over to settle in Los Angeles, but the things are spoiled again and Marvin Gaye falls down in depression. It will make a last public performance at the time of NBA All Star Range in 1983 where its resumption drunk person of the American National anthem remains in the memories.
Following a violent argument, his/her father kills it out of two blows of revolver, on April 1st 1984. He would have had 45 years the following day. With the general surprise, everyone discovers that Marvin Gaye had big problems with drug.
