Rolling Stone named Marvin Gaye’s 1971 studio album What’s Going On “Album of the Year.” With songs about war, anger, violence, injustice and the need for more love, his story remains almost prophetic about the troubles of modern-day society. Ferguson, Missouri, resident and singer Brian Owens, inspired by the recent events in his hometown, celebrates the life, legacy and importance of Gaye’s music through his show, What’s Going On: The Marvin Gaye Experience. “He’s an American treasure. This show puts a spotlight on the genius of Marvin Gaye as a social artist and his ability to capture that late-’50s to early ’70s social construct,” says Owens. Hear all the great hits: “Can I Get A Witness,” “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” “You’re All I Need To Get By,” “Let’s Get It On” and “Got To Give It Up,” all backed with a full band and guest singers. Expect tons of audience interaction, as this is not just a performance but also a full re-creation of what it would have been like to sit in the crowd at one of Gaye’s concerts. 8 p.m. Friday. Miller Outdoor Theatre, 6000 Hermann Park Drive. For information, call 281-373-3386 or visit Free.
