Bob Marley was the center of attention at the Apollo on Saturday night, but Lauryn Hill stole the show, as this Apollo-written recap of the event explains:

This past Saturday, the Apollo Theater celebrated the 35th anniversary of reggae icon Bob Marley’s Apollo debut with two big blowout concerts.

The unforgettable evening featured some of reggae music’s biggest titans performing Marley’s signature numbers including: international reggae star Maxi Priest whose effortless blend of reggae, R&B and dancehall led him to become the first reggae artist to have a number one hit worldwide; Marley’s son Ky-Mani Marley who, a star in his own right, is an accomplished musician, singer-songwriter and actor; reggae ambassadors Third World, one of the most legendary reggae bands of all time, most known for their hits “Now That We Found Love” and “Try Jah Love”; The Wailers who together with Bob Marley have sold over 250 million albums worldwide and are considered one of the most successful bands in reggae music history. Additionally, the Apollo audience was treated to a very special surprise guest performance by music superstar Lauryn Hill. The Grammy Award-winning songstress sent the Apollo audience into a frenzy when she joined The Wailers on stage, performing rousing renditions of Marley’s “Could This Be Love,” “Zimbabwe,” “Is This Love,” as well as one of her own big hits “Doo Wop.” All of the artists came together at the end of each show to perform Marley’s seminal classic “One Love.”
