Corbis Entertainment has been selected to represent the personality rights of iconic musician, singer and writer Marvin Gaye.

Corbis offers global end-to-end solution for brands and agencies to build programs in partnership with Hollywood content, celebrities, music and sports.

The company will now serve as the exclusive third-party licensor for Marvin Gaye’s rights and trademarks including his name, image, likeness, signatures and characterizations for use in advertising, promotions and merchandising.

“Marvin Gaye time and time again brought his vision, range and artistry to the world stage. He paved the way for other legendary artists like Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson and beyond, and his albums garnered widespread critical acclaim,” says Lisa Soboslai, vice president, content, rights representation, Corbis Entertainment. “We are honored to have the opportunity to expand his legacy and continue highlighting his artistic achievements.”

Gaye joins a roster of other celebrities in Corbis' portfolio including Albert Einstein, Steve McQueen, Bruce Lee, Thomas Edison, Sophia Loren and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“We, as a family, try to imagine what Marvin would have wanted, and we believe that partnering with Corbis Entertainment would appeal to him on many levels. We also believe that the professionalism and attention to detail that Corbis exhibits would have sealed the deal for him,” says Jan Gaye, Marvin Gaye’s ex-wife. “He would want to be in the company of the other great individuals who are already on the roster. Marvin prided himself with not settling for less and associating with the best. With Corbis, we know he will continue to be well represented in all aspects of his life.”
