Marvin Gaye's son in need of kidney transplant

The son of late soul legend MARVIN GAYE is desperately seeking an organ donor after suffering kidney failure.

Singer Marvin Gaye III, 46, reveals he has been receiving dialysis treatment for the past three years after experiencing complications from diabetes, but is still waiting for a transplant as medics have yet to find a suitable match.

He has now issued a public appeal to members of ethnic minorities to sign up as donors in an effort to draw attention to the challenges faced by black and Hispanic communities, in particular, in need of organ transplants, reports the Associated Press.
