The Voice winner Chris Blue continues his passionate attention to his craft, as the singer is currently working on his upcoming studio album. Personal songs such as “Blue Blood Blues,” a heartbreaking and compelling tune that was inspired by a previous relationships, are a testament to Blue’s decision not to go the creatively safe route with the project. Part of Blue’s success, along with having a collaborator like Alicia Keys by his side, comes from appreciating his own roots.

Whitney Houston started in the church, one of the greatest singers of our time,” said Blue, who won season 12 of The Voice. “Marvin Gaye was a church guy. Al Green was a church. There’s a lot of talented artists that started in church that we don’t know started in church. And I’m one of those guys and I’m proud of that. It’s who I am.”

MARVIN GAYE BIOPIC FROM A “LAW ABIDING CITIZEN”

115Director F.Gary Gray is getting a lot of attention for his upcoming Jamie FoxxGerard Butler thriller, Law Abiding Citizen, but his name has also been associated with one of the many Marvin Gaye biopics in development.

The filmmaker is quick to point out that his project has not been given the go-ahead yet because of a number of difficulties to work out.

For starters, music. Gray says Motown Svengali, Barry Gordy, owns the rights and hasn’t licensed them to any film production as of yet.  Plus the competition; there are several Marvin Gaye movies in development, but Gray is still hoping his film gets the green-light.
