Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has declared Feb. 6 Bob Marley Day.

It coincides with Marley's birthday. The Jamaican singer, who was born in 1945, died in 1981 at age 36. He would have been 69 Thursday.

It's perhaps no surprise that Ford is a Marley fan. The mayor was seen in a video posted in December dancing to the song One Love during a council session.

In his official proclamation of Bob Marley Day, Ford said, "We honor the legacy of Robert (Bob) Nesta Marley, an influential musician, advocate for human rights and international ambassador of peace."

The embattled mayor has been caught on video allegedly smoking crack and having outbursts while believed to be drunk. Ford has been pressured to step down as mayor, but refuses to.
