“Bob is the king of Reggae music. His message of peace, love and positive vibrations will live forever. Jah! Rastafari!!” – Emanuel Washington

A beacon of hope and peace, Bob Marley used his music to spread messages of unity and standing up for a cause. He believed in the strength of music to bring people together and felt that such power comes with the responsibility of consciousness and influence. Bob Marley died from cancer at the young age of 36, but his sentiments live on through his music and his children. Since his death, he has been granted many awards and honors including being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the UK Music Hall of Fame, awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “A man who battled against the hypocrisies of war, concrete jungles, and later cancer, Marley’s music always called out for a better tomorrow, asking the people to believe that no matter how dark the clouds, the sun would indeed always shine tomorrow and that there was always a chance for redemption.” –
