The United States Postal Service has announced late entertainment legends, Marvin Gaye and Gregory Hines, will be featured on commemorative stamps in 2019.

The Gaye stamp is inspired by historic photographs and designed to resemble a vintage 45 rpm record sleeve. Another portrait of the Grammy-winning soul singer will appear on the back of the stamp, which is part of the USPS’s Music Icons series.

Legendary actor and dancer Gregory Hines will appear on the 42nd stamp in the Black Heritage series.

The image chosen for the Hines stamp features a full body shot of Hines decked out in red and white, and wearing his famous tap dancing shoes.
