Bform_small Producer Brandon McFarland says:

Marvin Gaye’s album, What’s Going On, has been called one of the great soul music records of all time. The album was showcased at a 1972 concert at the Kennedy Center in Marvin’s hometown of Washington DC. The Kennedy Center commemoratated that live performance, and has asked select musicians to re-imagine “What’s Going On” — and I’m one of those musicians.
