D’Extra Wiley). Releaed on his label, MG3 Entertainment, the dance track has gotten great feedback so far.

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!
