    Biography

    Damian Marley, was born on July 21, 1978 in Kingston, Jamaica, and is
    the youngest male child of reggae legend Bob Marley, and the only child
    born to Marley and Cindy Breakspeare, the Miss World 1976. Damian's
    nickname is Junior Gong which is derived from his father's nickname of
    Tuff Gong.

    A talented artist in his own right, Damian has been performing since the
    age of 13. He shares with his brothers and sisters a full-time career in
    the Marley family business, music. Unlike his brothers and sisters,
    however, his musical specialty is "deejaying", the Jamaican style of
    "rapping" which some consider a predecessor of modern hip-hop. He is
    very much at home in this element, as his stage presence attests, and he
    is also an adept song-writer. As of 2005 he has released three albums,
    his first, Mr. Marley in 1996, his second, Halfway Tree in 2001, and his
    third, Welcome To Jamrock in September 2005. Halfway Tree was the
    2002 recipient of the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album."Welcome
    to Jamrock" won 2 grammy's in 2006. Damian frequently tours with his
    brothers Julian and Stephen, who are both members of the Ghetto Youths
    Crew, their own band.

    In the summer of 2004 Damian participated in the 27-city Bob Marley
    Roots, Rock, Reggae Festival Tour with his four brothers, Ziggy, Julian,
    Stephen and Ky-Mani, each of whom have their own professional
    recording careers.

    Damian has many records, including the highest placed reggae album in
    the USA billboard album charts with Welcome To Jamrock (the album),
    and the highest place reggae song in the UK Top 40 with Welcome To
    Jamrock (the single).

    At the 2006 Grammy Awards he won Best Reggae Album for Welcome To
    Jamrock and Best Urban/Alternative Performance for the song "Welcome
    To Jamrock".

    Like his father before him (before he converted to Christianity) and the
    rest of the Marley family, he is a Rastafarian and his music reflects both
    his beliefs and the Rastafarian guiding principles of one love, one planet
    and freedom for all. While he travels and tours the better part of the
    year, his home base is split between Kingston, Jamaica and Miami,
    Florida. He is single and has no children.

    Damian participated in Season 3 of Extreme Makeover Home Edition by
    performing a special concert for the Rainford family, whose father
    Dunstin is a Jamaican native.
