It’s been several decades since his death, but Reggae Forefather Bob Marley is still doing his part for the community. On the 17th of July his family will release their cover of the classic track, “One Love.” All proceeds from this recording will go directly to the UNICEF coronavirus relief fund. This fund was specifically to protect vulnerable children from the coronavirus crisis.
The Reggae classic will be recorded by Marley’s daughter Cedella, son Stephen and grandson Skip. They will also be accompanied by musicians and children from underprivileged communities. This trio certainly has the talent needed to record this track with perfection. Stephen Marley is an eight-time Grammy award winner and Cedella has three of her own. Skip Marley is also making his name in the music world, having recently become the first Jamaican artiste to top Billboards adult R&B songs chart.
One Love was originally recorded in 1977 by Bob Marley and the Wailers and appeared on their album “Exodus” along with some of their biggest hits like, “Jamming” and, “Three Little Birds.” According to a statement released by the family, “Our father wrote One Love about unity peace and universal love during a time when there was much trouble in the world. Even in a time when we aren’t able to get together, his message remains true today, we can get through this global crisis if we come together through one love and one heart.”
