I'm Overjoyed! Yippie.

Have you heard of Marvin Gaye? Unless you have been living under a rock your whole life or just hate music (why are you reading this?) then you know Marvin Gaye. What you might not know about Marvin is that he has a daughter named Nona, Nona Gaye. Nona might be more known for her acting over the years and as Zee in the Matrix movies, but Nona can also sing!

Back in 1992 when Nona was only 18 she released today's lost hit "I'm Overjoyed". The song was played on Top 40 stations, but never took off. "I'm Overjoyed" only peaked at #86 on the Hot 100, but I always took a liking to the track. Nona might not have had great music success like her pops, but I think she has done fine for herself. In the mid 90's she dated Prince and they made some sweet music together (Giggidy)!
