cedella_marley_bob_mother.jpgOutAroad.com received a depressing letter last night informing us of the death of Cedella Marley Booker who has passed away peacefully in her South Florida home. Cedella who’s the mother of the late reggae icon Robert Nesta Marley was 81 years old.

According to a source close to the family Cedella Marley died of natural causes.
“She died peacefully in the surroundings of all her friends and love ones”.

It’s evident that the great reggae icon Bob Marley inherits his musical talent from his mother as she was also a great musician and author. Cedella released two greatly produced albums titled “Smilin’ Island of Song” and “Awake Zion”. As an author she had written two magnificent books about her son.

You can listen to Cedella’s songs on her Myspace.com/cedellamarleybooker

From the OutAroad.com team and on the behalf of all Jamaicans we take this time out to send condolences to the Marley family and friends.

I actually had the pleasure of taking some very nice pictures of her at the Kentucky Reggae Splash. One of the pics I took of her is on the Jah Works website and I must say that she was the very essence of all black women...Jamaican...American...or African...Never did she deny an autograph to anyone who aproached her and she gave good piece of advice to all that she came across... She mad me feel like she was my BIG MAMA...and she gave me some advice and I will truly miss her....rest in peace my love....
