Earlier this week, other members of Bob Marley’s family, including his son Stephen, daughter Cedella and grandson Skip, released a new version of his classic song ‘One Love’. The new cover was released to raise money for UNICEF’s coronavirus fund and also featured a host of children living in vulnerable environments and musicians from conflict zones.

Meanwhile, a Bob Marley musical is set to arrive in London next year. Get Up, Stand Up! will debut at London’s Lyric Theatre from February 6, 2021, on what would have been the seminal musician’s 76th birthday
