    Nelson Mandela - The Wrong Memorial Was Shown To The World

    I’m watching the Cape Town Memorial Concert in honour of Nelson Mandela and am thinking the THIS is the send off that he would have wanted! The beautiful singing and dancing!

    I wish that the Obamas and the rest of the visitors had been here for the concert.
    People are saying that you can’t compare a memorial with a concert but this so much better. They are having amazing South African artists and bands like Freshly Ground, The Bala Brothers and Johnny Clegg.

    Freshly Ground is a mixed race group with members for from all over Africa.
    Johnny Clegg is known as the “White Zulu” – enough said.
    THESE are the people that represent South Africa! These are the groups that represent what Madiba stood for!

    I really wish that CNN and the rest of the World Was broadcasting this concert not the boring, spiritless memorial!

    CNN if you get the chance please broadcast scenes from this concert!!!
