Michaux gets vote of confidence from former Mrs. Marvin Gaye

Michaux - What's Going On...Still...SoulTrackers may remember that a couple months ago we reviewed the new album by Texas-based singer Michaux, titled "What's Going On...Still." It is a loving tribute to the great Marvin Gaye album that Michaux recorded over several months in Europe. (Click Here to see our review)

Well, today, Marvin Gaye's birthday, we received a note from Arlana Clopton of Michaux's camp with a note that Michaux received from Janis Gaye, the former Mrs. Marvin Gaye. It was a great gift to Michaux, and we thought we'd share it with SoulTrackers. Here it is:

"People who love Marvin Pentz Gaye Jr. need to check out this great artist called Michaux.  I was doing a Google search and found Michaux and was completely blown away.  He has done a bluesy, retro-style cover of Marvin's What's Going On album. It is not an imitation. It is an interpretation that we (the entire Gaye Family) love.  The tracks are not overdone but they are powerful. His singing and music is organic, it's beautiful and it touched me.  I couldn't not call and congratulate Michaux and tell him that he's has done a tremendous job!  This album was done with respect, love, honor and integrity.  I've never had a reaction like this to anyone who has covered Marvin's music. I can truly hear the love coming through Michaux's music.

My son Frank, grandson Nolan and daughter Nona are all listening to Michaux's new album; What's Going On ... Still ... and enjoying him performing Marvin's music.
We will be listening on Saturday, April 2 for Marvin Gaye's birthday.

This is such a wonderful gift for Marvin's birthday!
Another new member of the family...Much love to Michaux and Arlana"
