We are so honored to have received a very special message from Janis Gaye, the wife of Marvin Gaye, and we are excited to share her moving tribute with you:
“People who love Marvin Pentz Gaye Jr. need to check out this great artist called Michaux. I was doing a Google search and found Michaux and was completely blown away. He has done a bluesy, retro-style cover of Marvin’s What’s Going On album. It is not an imitation. It is an interpretation that we (the entire Gaye Family) love. The tracks are not overdone but they are powerful. His singing and music is organic, it’s beautiful and it touched me. I couldn’t not call and congratulate Michaux and tell him that he’s has done a tremendous job! This album was done with respect, love, honor and integrity. I’ve never had a reaction like this to anyone who has covered Marvin’s music. I can truly hear the love coming through Michaux’s music.
My son Frank, grandson Nolan and daughter Nona are all listening to Michaux’s new album; What’s Going On … Still … and enjoying him performing Marvin’s music. (more…)
