The article I’m reading is about Bob Marley. I always had an interest for Reggae music and Bob Marley is the Reggae icon. Marley’s career started off in the 1960s. His success gave hime worldwide recognition and brought popularity to Jamaican culture. He became the most powerful spokesperson  for peace and brotherhood. While Bob Marley brought Reggae music to the world, the United States in particular had a right time catching on to it. It didn’t catch on until after the music became popular in England. My personal Reggae favorite is Bob Marley’s song “Three Little Birds”. I listened to that song as a kid growing up whenever  I was feeling down. Hearing him sing “every little thing is gunna be alright” just seemed to put me in a more positive mood.  That’s the beauty of Reggae. It can bring that positive message and good vibe feeling to anyone how listens to it.  Many artists use Reggae’s power to free roam lyrics with mid-range rhythms. Reggae has helped shaped the way for many future songs such as Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye and What’s Love Got to Do With It by Tina Turner (Woot!, Tina Rocks).
