Bob Marley’s oldest daughter Cedella Marley is paying homage to her father. She recently created a musical adaptation  of Marley’s song “Three Little Birds.” The new musical is based on Cedella’s children’s book with the same name and opened at the New Victory Theater in New York on February 6th, one day after the legendary musician’s would have been 69th birthday. Check out what Cedella had to say to Essence about the play and how her dad inspired her.

On the character in the play being based on her brother Ziggy

“…Ziggy wasn’t really shy as a kid. Mind you, the mother’s name in the play is Cedella. I didn’t go too far out of the family to name the characters.”

On her children’s feelings on the songs and lyrics

“I have an 18-year-old who loves country music. My 17-year-old thinks grandpa can do no wrong, and my 10-year-old loves Drake. We didn’t raise them saying, ‘Listen to your grandfather!’ ‘Cause, who does that? In general, I think kids love reggae music because there’s something soothing about it. It’s light and it’s airy. And dad’s music has a timeless message of hope and liberation and love. Even a 5-year-old can relate.”

On how she and her siblings celebrate her father’s birthday

“We call each other and say ‘Happy birthday!’ We keep it simple and low-key. My mother is the one who goes all the way. She makes a cake shaped like a guitar. She really gets into it.”
