Bob Marley

During the 60’s- to the mid 80’s, a reggae singer from the third world island of Jamaica had risen to stardom and considered to be a revolutionary of his time. His name, Robert Nesta Marley, but as many knew him as, “Bob” Marley. For Bob Marley, he had represented himself in many aspects. Music, religion, freedom, law. He made the world look at him as a hero, in a turbulent time.

Bob Marley had created music that spoke peace. Hundreds and thousands of people have heard his catchy tunes, and feel-good melodies, and continue to be inspired. He was so dedicated to the meaning of his songs, that he was awarded a Peace Medal of the 3rd World, and even a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. He was also very involved in his religion, called Rastafari, and even also involved in the fight for the freedom of his country. This type of effort had made him global. From a reggae-singer, to a role model, to a Rasta-man. Bob Marley will always be remembered. (February 1945 – May 1981)
