Marvin Gaye Net Worth: Marvin Gaye was an American singer-songwriter and musician who had a net worth of $10 million. Born Marvin Pentz Gay, Jr. on April 2, 1939, in Washington, D.C., he was one of the musicians that helped shaping the sound of Motown Records in the 1960s. As defining singles in the process can be singled out hits like "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)" and "I Heard It Through the Grapevine", as well as duet recordings with Mary Wells and Tammi Terrell. Thus, they subsequently earned the titles "Prince of Motown" and "Prince of Soul". Throughout the 1970s, he went on to record the concept albums What's Going On and Let's Get It On, and became among the first artists in Motown to break away from the reins of its production company. Gaye's later recordings defined and heavily influenced the formation of several R&B subgenres like quiet storm and neo-soul. After spending a period as a tax exile in Europe in the beginning of the 1980s, Gaye saw the release of the 1982 Grammy Award-winning hit "Sexual Healing" and the Midnight Love album. On April 1, 1984, the world lost this incredible musician who has received numerous posthumous honors, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
