You can’t help but tap your feet and sway along with Ziggy Marley’s brand new children’s CD! This is his first foray into the kid’s arena and just for fun – he brought a few ‘pros’ along for the ride: Jack Johnson, Laurie Berkner, Elizabeth Mitchell and Jamie Lee Curtis are only a few of the artists featured on the CD Family Time.
Since I was given this CD, the kids haven’t stopped asking for it!
I used to listen to both Ziggy Marley and Bob Marley growing up – but not in a children’s format….I imagine many of you did too. In addition to some well known classics like “This Train” and “Hold Him Joe” Ziggy has written many original songs on this release which are endearing tributes to his family with many sage words of wisdom for kids.
“Growing up, music was an important part of my childhood. I see it being just as important in my children and all children’s growth and development, to help them grow with open minds and open hearts… This record represents my daily family life and is inspired by my three-year-old daughter Judah and baby Gideon. It was a joy to make and opened up new avenues in my creativity.”

Family Time will be released on Tuesday, May 5th. Proceeds from the sale of the CD will benefit Chepstowe Basic School in Port Antonio, Jamaica. Ziggy’s charity, U.R.G.E (Unlimited Resources Giving Enlightenment)started helping this school in part because it is so poor and in such disrepair that they have been unable to keep up to code on their own and be an officially part of the school system. U.R.G.E is trying to get the school back up to code by training the teachers and renovating the building with the help of the local childen’s parents. There is still much work to be done.
Contest runs from May 4th until Monday, June 1st.
Enjoy and Good luck!
