Glover Joins Marley Tribute

LETHAL WEAPON star DANNY GLOVER thrilled film fans at the launch of BOB MARLEY tribute concert documentary AFRICA UNITE on Saturday (07APR07) by recalling his first experience of the reggae great. The late Marley's family invited the actor to speak before the New York premiere of the film, which recounts the 2005 concert in Ethiopia held to celebrate what would have been the reggae legend's 60th birthday. Glover, who co-produced the documentary through his Louverture Films company, gladly accepted and used the moment to recall a fateful night in 1970 when he begrudgingly agreed to accompany a friend to a Marley show, and being "forever inspired." The film features behind-the-scenes footage and snippets of the 12-hour concert, including performances by LAUREN HILL and members of the Marley family. Saturday night's premiere concluded with Marley's widow RITA leading Rastafarian chant accompanied by a group of drummers.
