(AP) Marvin Gaye III is suffering from kidney failure and is seeking a donated organ for transplant.


The son of late singer Marvin Gaye announced earlier this week that he's been receiving dialysis for renal failure for three years and he's having trouble finding a suitable kidney for transplant.


He said he is sharing his condition publicly to help draw attention to the challenges blacks and Hispanics face in finding healthy organ donors. He also says he plans to donate some proceeds from his forthcoming album to a kidney research organization.


Marvin Gaye's estate is engaged in a legal battle over Robin Thicke's summer smash, "Blurred Lines."
