Bob Marley (formally known as Robert Nesta Marley OM) was one of the world's most talented singers, and to this day is a legendary icon. He was a Jamaican singer/songwriter and can be described as a musical revolutionist, who fought war with his music.

Bob Marley was more than a musician, he was a humble explorer, an innovator, and a philosopher. His lyrics were always wise and not only did he manage to inspire a nation, but the world too. Bob Marley believed in unity and expressed this through his music... he was a lyrical genius! He always let his music and his words act as his messenger. These were messages of freedom, religion and social change. Bob loved Jamacia and he even became a political icon and a hero to many.

Bob Marley's music is still as vital as it ever was in celebration of life and the embodiment of struggle.

Sadly Bob passed away on 11 May 1981 of cancer at the young age of 36 and although he is gone, his music will live on forever. In the words of Bob, One love.
