Jennifer Hudson, Lenny Kravitz + More Paying Tribute to Bob Marley Next Week on ‘Jimmy Fallon’
May 11 is the 30th anniversary of the death of guitarist Bob Marley, and 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' is planning to honor the reggae legend's legacy with a week of musical tribute performances featuring Jennifer Hudson, Lenny Kravitz and others.
Marley's oldest son Ziggy kicks off the week when he drops by 'Late Night' on Monday, followed on Tuesday by rocker Chris Cornell of Soundgarden. Hudson, the Grammy and Oscar-winning entertainer, will make an appearance on Wednesday's show.
Former Wallflowers frontman (and son of folk icon Bob Dylan) Jakob Dylan performs on Thursday, while Kravitz closes out the week with a performance on Friday. You can bet Fallon's funk-soul house band, the Roots, will certainly be involved as well.
The only question now is which Marley classics the musicians will perform. Marley recorded a number of influential hits throughout his career, including 'Stir it Up,' 'I Shot the Sheriff,' 'No Woman No Cry,' 'Redemption Song' and 'Buffalo Soldier.' Be sure to tune in to the NBC talk show at 12:37ET PM to see which song each artist chooses.
