Bob Marley's Son Singing 'Three Little Birds' With Ajax Fans Will Give You Goosebumps

Bob Marley's Son Singing 'Three Little Birds' With Ajax Fans Will Give You Goosebumps

Bob Marley's 'Three Little Birds' has been an anthem for Ajax fans for a considerable amount of time but it had extra significance when the home supporters belted it out in the Champions League in September.

That's because at half-time, Ky-Mani Marley, one of 11 acknowledged children of the late reggae music icon, sang some of his father's iconic song on the pitch for all of those in attendance at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

There he was, in his Ajax shirt, making sure everything was gonna be alright and that the fans weren't worrying about a thing. He and the fans teamed up for a rendition of 'One Love' but when the performance of 'Three Little Birds' was something else.

If you don't get goosebumps watching it, then there's something seriously wrong. It's just wonderful stuff.

Spurred on by the one of the biggest feel-good songs ever being sung as they made their way out for the second half, Ajax broke the deadlock straight after half-time through defender Nicolas Tagliafico, who scored a stunning second in the 3-0 win over AEK Athens.

42-year old Ky-Mani has developed an affiliation with the Amsterdam club in August, he was in attendance to see Ajax trounce FC Emmen 5-0 and received the most perfect welcome from the fans.

In May 2017, during their run to the Europa League final against Manchester United, Ajax supporters hit headlines for their brilliant gesture to a busker.

On the streets of Lyon, their semi final opponents, the busker was playing songs on the guitar. It was then requested that he play the club anthem, to which the busker duly obliged - and in doing so, he was greeted by a great reception.

Wearing a hoodie, with a shaggy beard, and slightly ripped shorts, the busker was then swamped with the generosity of the Ajax fans who started to rain some cash on the gent.

Fan after fan put coins into the collection, and the busker became clearly overwhelmed by what was happening.
