Top 15 Bob Marley Covers by the Sistas

In this edition Bob Marley gets a feminine touch, a feminine representation and remake of the the king’s classic tunes. Starting from the cover pic with his eldest grand daughter Donisha Prendergrast re-imagining The Legend Album cover. The list includes a neo soul rendition from Ms Badu; some acoustic vibes from Lulu Falamera; MC Lyte blends it in with a hip hop version; a poetic flow from Floetry: a skanking version from Althea & Donna; a theatrical treatment from Worl-A-Girl; a sensual remake with an award streak from Ms Corrine Bailey Rae and of course the indelible mush up with Ms Lauryn Hill. We round it off in a standing ovation with an 18min long jazz rendition from the one and only Ms Dianne Reeves.

Bob Marley would have turned 71 today. Earthstrong Vibes.
