School of Rock Partners with Skip Marley to cover Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds”
School of Rock‘s “AllStars” program partnered with Skip Marley to cover Bob Marley’s anthem “Three Little Birds.” It comes at a time when the world needs the reminder the most, that “…every little thing gonna be alright.” The collaboration highlights the inspirational message of Bob’s music combined with the hopes of the new generation – including Bob’s own grandson, Skip.
School of Rock is the world’s largest and most widespread music school, educating youth on all things music through hands-on experiences. School of Rock’s “AllStars” are the school’s top performance musicians, and due to social distancing, they virtually created this video performance from the comfort of their own homes.
“This video is meant to spread a message of positivity during a pivotal time of historic disruption,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. “Our AllStars, the very best School of Rock artists from around the world, typically tour across the United States each summer. But when COVID-19 disrupted those plans, we knew we needed to keep the music playing and inspire others with optimism. Having our students join Skip to record the music and vocal tracks of this iconic song is poignant, and reminiscent of how moving the message of Three Little Birds was when first released.”
At the end of the performance, students at School of Rock explain what this song means to them, especially during turbulent times such as these. “There is always hope, even in the darkest of times”, and that,”better things will come in the future, and it’s important to have faith in that.”
This cover of the iconic “Three Little Birds” comes during Bob Marley’s 75th celebration – what would be the artist’s 75th birthday year. His legacy lives on through his grandson Skip, who is now labelmates with his late grandfather on Island Records. On May 28th, Skip released his latest single, “No Love” and an accompanying lyric video here.
