I'LL TELL YOU WHAT'S GOING ON: An innovative twist on the iconic Marvin Gaye ballad, What’s Going On, What’s Going On... Now makes parallels between the social, economic, environmental, and political divides described in Mr. Gaye’s lyrics and similar narratives present in current events.

The stunningly impressive website, unveiled by members of ArtsEDGE at the Kennedy Center and Chicago’s Digital Youth Network at the DML, is jam-packed with curriculum content, lesson plans, and suggested group activities to explore the "historical, musical, and intellectual themes of What’s Going On."

Be sure to point your students to the CREATE page where they can "remix" one or more of nine original Marvin Gaye multi-tracks into their own audio, video, or poetic masterpiece. Even better, they can upload their creations to the site to let the world know know what’s really going on now!
