I love me some Marvin.

For some reason I'm having a heck of a time trying to view you tubes this evening though.

Ooh, Marvin! I like to think that my mother named me as such because she was inspired by him...

I could be here all night...I think I'm mesmerized...I may be entering a Marvin period!

Happy OSF!

The man, the genius, the voice - I'm missing you Marvin. This was such a treat to my hears and my heart.

The second song was a first for me. The ending was a surprise and I was intrigued to know more about the man behind the voice.

Marvin Gaye, a great talent that is missed by many generations. Certainly a man with a message! 03 August, 2008 18:06

Hello there...

Marvin...Marvin....what a sad ending to a beautiful man with a tremendous gift...if only he had allowed the Holy Spirit to abide with him....his torment would not have destroyed him...

He is so deeply missed ...and so immensely cherished...

I loved when Diana sang "Missing you" as a tribute to him.

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!

Marvin Gaye is a great choice. I can't say enough about the man's voice and music. Born to sing.
