While we may be a few months late to this, we couldn't help but want to share it with the rest of the world - and if you've yet to see it, you're about to understand why.

In January, in anticipation of what would have been the late Bob Marley's 70th birthday, a group of Israeli musicians recorded a stunning tribute to the reggae idol, with an a cappella version of fan favorite "Could You Be Loved."

Reggae music has been for long deeply integrated into Israeli culture - you'd be surprised how many Israelis rock dreadlocks - and continues to permeate Hebrew culture to this day, with musicians like Popcaan and even Marley's son Damian recently performing in Tel Aviv.

After all, we are all from Zion.

Produced by Guy Dreifuss (Afficoman) and Shmulik Bar-Dan, the a cappella musicians remain perfectly in sync throughout the song, which is layered with voices providing lyrics, instrumentalism, and harmony.
