Amid the turbulent sociopolitical backdrop of the 50’s and 60’s, life experiences that grow out of familial strife, war, and social struggles give birth to artistic genius, such as the building of Motown Records and its many iconic talents. This era also births epic love stories, among which is the tumultuous and passionate journey of one of history’s most intriguing power couples, Marvin Gaye and Anna Gordy. Marvin is a smooth, young and sexy balladeer. And Anna, though ahead of her time, is a brilliant entrepreneur, songwriter and talent developer. This makes the crossing of their paths inevitable.
PRIDE & JOY tells the riveting story of this union and how the two change history, the music industry, and Motown Records through ballads inspired by their love, conflict, and creativity. The story journeys through romantic and even volatile clashes between Marvin and Anna, which ultimately influence the direction and sound of Motown.
Featuring 28 songs from the legendary Motown catalog, including the greatest hits of iconic Grammy Award-winning singer, Marvin Gaye!
