Marvin Gaye’s Secret Moments


Although Old Hollywood legends and royal princesses alike may have been revered for their enviable style and penchant for luxury, they also grappled with troubled upbringings and tumultuous relationships throughout their lifetimes. Delving past the curtain of glamorous celebrity, Secret Moments is a series humanizing the icons of yesterday.

Marvin Gaye Jr. was born on April 2, 1939 in Washington D.C. His interest in music sparked from an early age, starting with vocals, before he worked his way to mastering the drums and piano. The artist was a rarity in music, a triple-threat who sang, wrote, and developed rhythms in his own songs. His interesting mix of styles and vocal range, spanning over four octaves, contributed something illustrious and magical to music. On what would have been his 80th birthday, CR remembers Gaye’s legacy with some of the life moments that shaped the musical visionary.
