Have just got word that Marvin Junior passed away this afternoon.
We have known for a while that he was ill.
Our sympathies to all his family and friends.
One of the greatest voices in Soul Music.
A great loss to us all.
Marvin died from kidney failure and had a weak heart, his son Marvin Junior Jr. says his father died surrounded by family in his home in Harvey around 3:15 pm on Wednesday afternoon.
He leaves such an incredible legacy.
R.I.P Marvin Junior.
