Gaye’s stamp will join the ranks of other artists in the postal service’s “Music Icon” series such as Elvis Presley, John Lennon and Sarah Vaughan.
Gaye was a musical force in the 70s who became a crown jewel for Motown Records. His most celebrated hits include “Let’s Get it On,” and “What’s Going On?”
He died in 1984.
USPS says it will issue additional details on its website for the icon’s stamp debut event in Los Angeles on April 2.
