A special Happy Birthday goes to legendary Marvin Gaye who would have turned 75 years old today (April 2). Along, with that yesterday (April 1) marked the 30th anniversary of his death. Although he is gone, his impact on music is never forgotten, for he is the cited inspiration for many R&B artists including Sebastian Mikael, R.Kelly, and J. Holiday. For J. Holiday, the inspiration runs so deep that it led him to cover Gaye’s hit track I Want You on The Arsenio Hall Show. The Incredible singer did the track justice, as he paid homage to the ground-breaking artist that is Marvin Gaye. I know Gaye is looking down smiling, for he will remain in our music hearts forever & always.
