Bob Marley’s family has reinvented the song of the music icon “One Love” to raise funds for the UNICEF coronavirus fund.

Originally recorded in 1977 by Bob Marley and The Wailers, the new version of ‘One Love’ sees the singing of Marley Stephen’s son, daughter Cedella and grandson Skip.

It also presents a crowd of children living in vulnerable environments and musicians from conflict zones.

Marley’s Tuff Gong International, the label and recording studio he founded in the 1970s, will team up with the world record label Amplified Music to release the record on July 17.

All proceeds from the song will go to Reimagine, UNICEF’s global campaign to prevent the lasting effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on children.

“Over 40 years ago my father wrote One Love about unity, peace and universal love at a time when there were many problems in the world,” said Cedella.

“Even at a time when we cannot meet, his message remains true today, we can get through this global crisis if we come together with one love and one heart.”

All proceeds from the trail will help Reimagine to provide soap, masks, gloves, hygiene kits and protective gear for children and families, as well as support recovery efforts and health systems.

TikTok will also host a launch event featuring a song-centric challenge, while jewelry giants Pandora will match every dollar donated by the public, up to one million US dollars.

UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore said: “One Love speaks directly from a key truth of this pandemic: our best hope of defeating Covid-19 and reinventing a more egalitarian and less discriminatory world for children goes on through global solidarity and cooperation.

“We are delighted that the Marley family and Pandora have lent their generous support, creativity and love to help the most vulnerable children.”
