Ryan Shaw Celebrates Marvin Gaye

If you are not aware of Ryan Shaw, an incredible talent with Broadway, concert house performances and Grammy-nominated album credits to his name, you should know him now.

Ryan’s fourth album, Imagining Marvin, a celebration of Marvin Gaye in song, will be released in November. But you can hear “Strong Men Can”, a single he co-wrote with songwriting genius Valerie Simpson, available now.

Ryan starred as the original Stevie Wonder in Motown: The Musical on Broadway, and

he recently appeared as Judas at the Lyric Opera of Chicago in Jesus Christ Superstar, and on London’s West End as the Soul of Michael Jackson in Thriller Live.

Ryan has performed as a concert soloist at some of the finest venues in the country, including Radio City, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center.

Check out his album, which you can pre-order.
