The family of Bob Marley have reimagined the music legend’s one of the iconic songs, “One Love” to raise money for UNICEF’s coronavirus charity. This new version has the vocals from Marley’s son Stephen, daughter Cadella and grandson Skip. The original song was recorded in 1977 by Bob Marley and The Wailers and was included in their album Exodus. However, the singer’s original group, The Wailers, have first recorded this song in 1965 in a ska style.
The record will be released on July 17 by the label and recording studio Marley founded in the 70s’, Marley’s Tuff Gong International. The studio will team up with the global record company Amplified Music to release the record. The earnings from the song will be handed to UNICEF’s global campaign Reimagine which focuses to prevent the long-lasting impacts of the coronavirus pandemic for children.
The following is the description from the UNICEF’s official website as it is.
“One love. One heart.”
Bob Marley’s everlasting message about the power of love and solidarity is more important than ever as families face the COVID-19 pandemic and millions call for equality.
