To celebrate the ongoing 75th Anniversary of the birth and life of music legend Bob Marley, Marley family and friends from the four corners of the earth gather together as The Amplified Project to ‘reimagine’ the iconic “One Love (Amplified)” anthem in support of UNICEF’s work to reimagine a fairer, more just world for children whose lives have been upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, available today for worldwide distribution via Tuff Gong/Island Records. All net proceeds from sales of the charity release of the “One Love” track and video are being paid to UNICEF.
Originally recorded in 1977 by Bob Marley and the Wailers, One Love/People Get Ready is an iconic song for millions across the globe with its everlasting message to come together as one. The reimagined version of the song will be a true global anthem for 2020 featuring members of the Marley family, established musicians from all corners of the globe, artists from conflict zones around the world, and children living in vulnerable communities.
The Amplified Project participants in the reimagined “One Love” include the following:
