Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kenneth Stover (born August 21, 1948 in Athens, Georgia) is a former Motown songwriter, producer and singer most notably known for contributing background vocals on Marvin Gaye's legendary 1971 album, What's Going On, and for writing the first draft of Marvin's popular 1973 single, "Let's Get It On." Alongside his brother, Elgie Stover, after living in Cleveland, Ohio for the duration of his childhood and teenage years, he and his brother moved to Detroit to work with their cousin, doo-wop and soul legend Harvey Fuqua on his Tri-Phi record label. It was there in Detroit that they befriended Marvin and members of the Motown family. In the late sixties, the Stover brothers signed on to Motown as staff songwriters. Their friendship with Marvin led the singer to bring the brothers to collaborate on his most acclaimed album. Stover contributed additional background vocals on Marvin's "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)" and later co-wrote Marvin's modest political hit, 1972's "You're the Man."
