One of the most touching “Tribute songs” for over 3 decades is a song called ” Missing You” written, composed and produced by Lionel Richie in 1984. Diana Ross sang the song which captured the long standing friendship between herself and Marvin. They were life long friends as well as label mates having joined Motown in the early 60’s. We are all “Missing you” Marvin Gaye but your music lives on forever.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YA!
Another great, touching and powerful tribute song is “Happy Birthday to Ya” written, produced and performed by the legendary Stevie Wonder. He was inspired to write the song in 1981 because of his involvement and campaign to make Martin Luther King Jr’s Birthday a national holiday.
