Ziggy, the eldest son of late reggae legend, Robert Nesta Marley, won the Emmy for outstanding original song, writing the music and lyrics for “I Love You Too” for the Disney Channel show “3rd & Bird!”
The singer already has four Grammys. The song for the show came following his children’s album Family Time in 2009.
Ziggy, in commenting on the honor, told the Jamaica Observer, he “never expected it, but it feels good.”
3rd & Bird is a British television program aimed at young children, which revolves around a community of birds and their adventures. The series is described as “a charming new animated series all about community.”
