Released 35 years ago, the hit single, "One Love" still resonates in the hearts of millions of fans worldwide. Other hits like, "No woman no cry", "Jamming", "Redemption song", and more, still enjoy such global reception.

The man behind these great hits was Bob Marley.

Born Robert Nesta Marley, the Jamaican singer-songwriter and performer influenced the world with reggae music and the Rastafari movement. His ideas were closely related to the beliefs of the Pan-African movement in his time. His religion was the Rastafari movement, of which he was a member.

What would become a worldwide musical career began in the community of Trench Town in the late 50s. Marley’s musical talent was nurtured there. He would later refer to it in the hit single, "No woman, no cry".

Marley’s music was deep and unifying, cutting across races, colors, nations, and religions. He preached tolerance and peace through his music, as music lovers around the world easily fell in love with his unique voice and smooth-heart-touching lyrics.

Marley was diagnosed of a type of malignant melanoma under the nail of one of his toes in July 1977. Melanoma later spread to his lungs and brain, which eventually led to the death of the reggae legend at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Miami (now University of Miami Hospital) on the morning of 11 May 1981, at the age of 36.

After his death, his fame and legacy kept on spreading. And his music remains as fresh to this present generation.
