(VIDEO) Flashback Friday: Marvin Gaye “What’s Going On”

Talk to us Marvin…

Marvin Gaye’s 1971 single, “What’s Going On,” is still very relevant today. The song was inspired by Renaldo “Obie” Benson of the Four Tops after he witnessed police brutality toward anti-war activists in California. In light of the events in Ferguson, I felt that this was the perfect Flashback Friday song this week.

Check out a short video of Marvin performing the song in Amsterdam up top.
