Marvin Gaye helped to shape the sound of Motown Records in the 1960s with a string of hits, including "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)" and "I Heard It Through the Grapevine".
During the 1970s, he became one of the first artists in Motown to break away from the reins of its production company. Gaye's later recordings influenced several R&B subgenres, such as quiet storm and neo-soul.
In 1982, Gaye released the Grammy Award-winning hit "Sexual Healing" and the Midnight Love album. Since his death in 1984, many institutions have posthumously honoured Gaye, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The fascinating story of Marvin Gaye will be brought to the big screen for this first time with his family's approval.
He's one of the most popular Motown singers of all-time with an incredible back-catalogue of fantastic music.
