Marvin Gaye & Friends...Branson finally gets a tribute to one of the greatest artists in music history! Kirk Hunter gets the honor of bringing Gaye’s hit songs to the stage - incredible music that ranges from toe-tappin’ early Motown magic, like “I’ll Be Doggone,” to the more thought-provoking stuff, like “What’s Goin’ On” from the biggest album of his far-too-brief career. Marvin Gaye may be best remembered; however, for his chart-topping version of “Heard It Through the Grapevine,” and for all of the great work he did with female vocalist, Tammy Terrell. And, of course, he joins the short list of artists, with soulful crooner, Barry White, whose songs remain timeless when it comes to romance, especially his hit “Let’s Get It On.” Kirk Hunter treats audiences to a long list of Marvin Gaye’s best stuff, including “Mercy, Mercy Me” and “Sexual Healing.” Marvin Gaye & Friends is appearing at the Hot Hits Theatre in the Historic Downtown Branson District, an ideal venue that allows close-up performances, the best way to enjoy the music of Motown and other soulful songs!
