Reggae Singer Ziggy Marley wins Emmy award

by DHRW
(Jamaica)


Internationally-regarded Reggae singer, Ziggy Marley can now add Emmy winner to his long list of career achievements.


The five-time Grammy award recipient was a winner at the Daytime Emmy Creative Arts Awards in Los Angeles this past Sunday for his song, I Love You Too, which featured on the British animation, 3rd and Bird, a show also airs on Disney Junior in the United States. Marley’s award was announced shortly before the Daytime Emmy Awards main show, which took place Sunday night.

Marley, the former lead singer of Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers expressed shock at winning the award, insisting he knew nothing of the nomination, much less the accolade.

He told the Jamaica Observer, “When somebody mentioned to me that I won an Emmy, I was like ‘What’s that?’. It’s not like the Grammys when you know you are nominated and there is a lot of buzz around that... so I never expected it, but it feels good.”

I Love You Too was recorded after Marley was contacted by representatives from 3rd and Bird following the release of his children’s album, Family Time in 2009. He and his siblings had previously appeared on the prominent American children’s show, Sesame Street while Marley himself featured as a voice on another children’s program, Shark Tale.

“For the Emmy to acknowledge and recognize us Reggae music in this form is something new for us, and is definitely a step forward,” Marley told the Observer.

Other notable Jamaican Emmy award winners, include TVJ’s hour-long program, Impact for its look into the infamous Washington DC sniper case involving Lee Boyd Malvo, as well as Johnathon Walton, a four-time Primetime Emmy award-winning comedic reporter for his comedic news reports on CBS’ Houston affiliate between 2003 and 2006.
