Marley Tribute at the Grammy's

In case you missed it, here's the 2013 Grammy tribute to Bob Marley by Bruno Mars, Sting, Rihanna, Ziggy Marley and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, doing a brief rendition of "Could You be Loved."

The tribute section in the video below starts at 4:00 minutes in, prior to that Mars sings his hit "Locked Out of Heaven," mashed up into Sting covering his former band The Police's "Walking On The Moon."

There's an interesting backstory to how the performance came together, read this LA Times piece for the full account (although they misspell Damian Marley's name...)
