Remember Marvin

Posted in Die CD, Musik Department Berlin, Musik für alle with tags , , , , on 31. März 2012 by Musik Department

in 1981 a belgian promoter, music lover and hotel owner invited Marvin Gaye in his hotel in Ostende/Belgium to relax after the european tour.

Marvin Gaye was physical and mental starved with money and drug problems. His career was at a crossroad to cessation.

This year Ostende remembers with a special on this very special guest in 1981. They started an application – the Midnight Love Digital Walk

To get an idea about different times, a gentleman, the smoothest soul voice for decades, or when you will not get the chance to have a walk in Ostende this documentary will touch you.

Remember Marvin ( in french & english )

at the end of his break in 1982, he has to return to the states, because of visa problems. He left with lyrics, arrangements and final versions for a new album – Midnight Love

in 1984 he died tragically in the states, shot by his own father
