Marvin Pentz Gay II was born April 2, 1939, in Washington, D.C. Later in life he changed his name to Marvin Gaye.
His father, Reverend Marvin Gay Sr, was an ordained minister in the House of G-d, described as 'Hebrew Pentecostal' - an unusual mix of Christianity and Judaism. Reverend Gay was a frighteningly tough disciplinarian.
Marvin Gaye started singing in church as an infant, and as a child he took up the piano and drums.
At 15, Marvin Gaye joined the 'doowop' group, The Rainbows. Marvin also sang with The Moonglows.
Marvin Gaye moved to Detroit and joined the Tamla/Motown company in 1961. His first single was Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide in May 1961, and in June 1961 he had his first album The Soulful Moods of Marvin Gaye.
In 1962 he started to break-through. Stubborn Kind of Fellow reached 46 in the US charts, and Hitch Hike reached number 30.
In 1963 Pride and Joy reached number 10 and in November 1964, the classic How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) reached No.6.
Marvin Gaye was married to the sister of Motown boss
