“I Heard It Through The Grapevine” that this week “What’s Going On?” is Marvin Gaye, so “Let’s Get It On.” The Prince of Motown was a singer, songwriter and producer whose hits endure to this day. There “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” for this consistent chart-topper, whose awards included induction into the Rock and Roll hall of Fame, a lifetime achievement Grammy and making Rolling Stone’s list of Greatest Songs of All Time. Marvin was tragically shot to death by his own father in 1984.
