The 59th GRAMMY Awards – Backstage

Bob Marley’s grandson Skip makes debut at the Grammys

In order to build a lasting empire, one first would need to successfully build on what existed before them. For isn’t that often the ultimate hope for many parents, for their sons or daughters to carry on the family traditions? Enter Skip Marley, the son of Cedella Marley and her husband David Minto. As the grandson of reggae legend Bob Marley, it was exhilarating, but expected that he would make his mark on the international music scene soon. And February 12th proved to be the night at the 59th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.

Together with Katy Perry he performed her brand new single Chained To The Rhythm to approximately 25 million viewers. It was not only Skip’s debut television performance but also the first time he and Perry performed the song live. Chained To The Rhythm has out since Friday – February 10th.

A few hours earlier Skip Marley’s uncle Ziggy received a Grammy for his self titled album in the category BEST REGGAE ALBUM.
