Magic 95.5 Featured Video

Marvin Gaye was born today in 1939 and died yesterday in 1984. The fallen legend would have been 75 today. He is hands down one of the best and richest male voices, ever. I’ve been a Marvin Gaye fan before I could even talk. I can still hear his voice echoing through the hallways of my childhood home and my mom would harmonizing with him. Marvin Gaye had a timid soul with a palpable silky voice that melted the hearts of many women that he was ironically terrified of.
