He passed just a day before his 45th birthday on  April 1, 1984 To this day people still listen to marvin gaye and his music is classic, often associated with love and relationships. There hasn’t really been another artist like him since to put out such resonating music. His soulful and smooth tone set him apart from other artist, especially during that time. His songs have stood the test of time and continues to have a way of affecting people in the aspect of love like no other.
