Guests Otis Williams, Claudette Robinson and Jan Gaye reflect on the life and legacy of Motown legend Marvin Gaye.

Marvin Gaye evolved a musical style that redefined R&B and influenced a generation of performers. His classic records include the concept project, "What's Going On"—deemed one of the landmark albums in pop history—and his Grammy-winning hit, "Sexual Healing." Gaye sang street corner doo wop and jazz ballads and was a session drummer before being dubbed "The Prince of Motown" and becoming one of the label's most consistent hitmakers. In '87, he was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
