Zeola Gaye on ‘Blurred Lines’ Verdict and Keeping Marvin’s Legacy Alive

zeola gaye & my brther marvin books

*On Tuesday a Los Angeles jury awarded Marvin Gaye’s heirs (Nona Gaye, Marvin Gaye III, and Frankie Gaye) more than $7 million dollars in damages in the verdict of the “Blurred Lines” lawsuit.

The 2013 top-selling song by Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and T.I. was found to have many similarities to Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got to Give it Up.”

Gaye’s youngest sister Zeola sends congratulations to her niece and nephews.

“As far as I’m concerned right is right and wrong is wrong,” she said agreeing with the verdict, “Justice prevailed today.”

The lengthy battle began in 2013 and involved the sheet music for “Got to Give it Up,” which Gaye’s children own.

Zeola Gaye, who is known for “My Brother Marvin: A Memoir” published in 2011, says she is still working to keep her brother’s legacy alive. In 2013 she produced a play MY BROTHER MARVIN, https://eurweb.com/2013/05/eur-stage-review-my-brother-marvin-hits-l-a-for-pantages-run/, which did really well.

In April there will be an open-to-the-public celebration from Marvin Gaye’s 76th birthday.

“He has a birthday approaching April 2nd, which I celebrate every year. This year, in Vegas, we are going to have a little celebration for his birthday. It should be off the chain!”

The festivities will be taking place at the Fiesta Rancho Hotel & Casino. There will be a tribute by a few artists singing Marvin Gaye songs and guests will be able to write messages to Marvin on balloons that will be released at midnight.

Be sure to look out for more things from Zeola Gaye in keeping Marvin Gaye’s legacy alive. She tips that she and her sister are collaborating on a project estimated to be out by the end of this year or beginning of next year.

“We are looking at a biopic, maybe.”
