This year to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of Marvin Gaye’s iconic album “What’s Going On, on June 19, the city of Detroit plans on dedicating a portion of West Outer Drive at Monica Street as “Marvin Gaye Drive.”
As part of the celebration, a Detroit artist by the name of Fel’le is hoping to raise enough money to paint a mural of Marvin Gaye near the home where Gaye once lived. Fel’le say that “We are proposing this mural to be painted on the famed Aretha Franklin mural wall at 19926 Livernois and Pembroke. We really need your help and monetary support in bringing this vision to light. All donations are appreciated!” Detroit, do your part and help Fel’le raise money to paint this iconic mural for yet another Detroit legend and help start Juneteenth off right!
