As a part of its MUSIC ICONS SERIES, the UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE has planned a Forever USA postage stamp in honor and memory of late MOTOWN Legend MARVIN GAYE to be issued in 2019!!!

USPS states;
"The stamp design features a portrait of Gaye inspired by historic photographs. The stamp pane is designed to resemble a vintage 45 rpm record sleeve. One side of the pane includes the stamps, brief text about Gaye’s legacy, and the image of a sliver of a record seeming to peek out the top of the sleeve. Another portrait of Gaye, also inspired by historic photographs, appears on the reverse along with the Music Icons series logo. Art Director DERRY NOYES designed the stamp pane with original art by KADIR NELSON."
