Bob Marley is helping the millions at risk of starving in Somalia's famine.

Yes, the late, great reggae star is helping in the current African famine. His wonderful song "High Tide or Low Tide" has been donated by his widow, Rita Marley, to be used in Save the Children's campaign to raise funds to aid victims of the famine in the Horn of Africa.

From GlobalPost: Somalia famine: How to help

Current pop sensations like Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Robert Plant have also joined the campaign.

Can a new "Heal the World" multi-star song and video be far off?

Such an pop extravaganza might be effective in getting more people engaged in this crisis. And raising more money to help.

In the meantime, enjoy this video.
