Teddy Swims – What’s Going On (Marvin Gaye Cover)

“It’s been almost 50 years since Marvin Gaye released ‘What’s Going On’ and what was going on then is still happening now. This album inspired people to fight for justice and civil rights throughout the years and influenced me a lot growing up, especially witnessing my friends experiencing injustices I never had to face. I’m so grateful to all the black musicians, like Marvin Gaye, who’ve used their platforms to change the world and make music what it is today. As a musician who has been heavily influenced by black artists and black culture, I want to do my part to honor their legacies by spreading their message of love and by donating the royalties of this song to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.” – Teddy Swims
