Marvin Gaye Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine Monumentally influential soul/R&B vocalist whose music incorporated socio-political issues, atmospheric arrangements, and unified album themes.
A minister in the House of God, Reverend Marvin Gay ran a strict household and his son -- who would add an "e" to his surname when he signed to Motown/Tamla, partially in tribute to his idol Sam Cooke-- sought refuge in music. Marvin Gaye sang in his father's church at the age of three and quickly rose through its ranks as a soloist. Soon, he also learned piano and drums.
