Profile Bio Text
Nona Marvisa Gaye (born on September 17, 1974) is an African American singer, former fashion model, and screen actress. The daughter of soul music legend Marvin Gaye and granddaughter of jazz great Slim Gaillard, she began her career as a vocalist in the early 1990s, moving into acting in the 2000s. Gaye is the only daughter of singer Marvin Gaye and wife Janis Gaye. She is Marvin`s second child - her brother Marvin III (sometimes referred to as Marvin Gaye, Jr.) was from Gaye`s first marriage while her younger brother Frankie was born within a year after her. As a baby, Nona was brought out on stage by her father during a concert. At eight, she formally introduced her father on Soul Train during a tribute episode to the singer. Nona released her first album, Love for the Future, on Atlantic Records in 1992, a month after her 18th birthday. The album featured the top 20 hit "I`m Overjoyed" as well as "The Things That We All Do For Love". The following year, Nona was named one of People Magazine`s 50 Most Beautiful People. She signed to Ford Modeling Agency in 1994, and became the new face of Armani.
Nona appeared alongside other artists to re-record and release her father`s single, "What`s Going On" for AIDS research in 2001. The same year, she began her acting career, debuting in Michael Mann`s Ali. In 2002, she replaced Aaliyah, who died in a plane crash shortly after the filming of the Matrix sequels began, for the role of Zee, the wife of Harold Perrineau Jr.`s character Link. At one point, she worked with R. Kelly on two as-yet-released singles, "Work It" & "Just Because", which interpolates the Gap Band`s "Oops Upside Your Head". In July 2006, Gaye was added to the cast of Law & Order: Criminal Intent as a replacement for Courtney B. Vance as the new Assistant District Attorney. However, just as the series began production for its sixth season, she left the show, citing "creative differences". Gaye was replaced by Theresa Randle, who left after filming only two shows.
