Marvin Gaye: What's Going On

Marvin Gaye achieved monumental success as Motown's foremost artist and was an admired sex symbol for much of his life. Despite his achievements, he was forever haunted by his shy demeanor and an abusive father and descended into bankruptcy and drug addiction until he was murdered by his father on the night before his 40th birthday. Marvin Gaye: How Sweet It Is is a wonderful and loving remembrance of Gaye's life by the people in his life filled with clips of his music. Gaye's troubled life along with his genius he shared with the world makes for a wonderful biography that delves deep into a fascinating life.
