Back in November, the United States Postal Service announced entertainment icons Marvin Gaye and Gregory Hines as part of its latest Music Icons and Black Heritage Stamp series respectively.
While the Hines commemorative stamp was issued on January 28, the stamp dedicated to the "Prince of Soul" is set to be released on Gaye's birthday, April 2. In the meantime, the U.S. Postal Service shared an actual photo of the stamp with the caption:
"We’re honoring the life, legend, and sound of Marvin Gaye (1939 - 1984) with the newest stamp in our Music Icons series. Pictured here in front of Washington D.C.’s @howardtheatre, where he graced the stage, our stamp features a portrait of Gaye inspired by historic photographs."
