Here’s how a press release from his camp put it:
Marvin III started off as part of a musical duo with Lou Rawls Jr., son of three-time Grammy Award winner, Lou Rawls. Unfortunately even after signing to Capitol Records, the duo’s music and/or album was never released.
His journey thus far has only provided more motivation for Marvin; who is putting the finishing touches on his debut album. He has released a brand new single, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” (feat. D’Extra Wiley). Releaed on his label, MG3 Entertainment, the dance track has gotten great feedback so far. Additionally, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You is in rotation at some of the top radio stations on the west coast.
Gaye’s voice has remnants of his father’s soft tenor and falsetto, with mass crossover appeal. The singer was diagnosed with diabetes two years ago and currently awaits a kidney donor. Marvin Gaye III has become a powerful activist for the disease and other worthy causes. He is married to model, actress and performer, Wendy Gaye. With his new single “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” Marvin III is on the way to continuing the legacy of his iconic father who was a gift to the world!
