    'Talking Nelson Mandela': Michel Montecrossa’s New-Topical-Song dedicated to the long way to freedom

    Talking Nelson Mandela',  is Michel Montecrossa's New-Topical-Song in memory of Nelson Mandela, his moral stature and his great humanitarian and political achievements for the South-African Nation Building.

    Michel Montecrossa says:

    “I wrote the New-Topical-Song ‘Talking Nelson Mandela’ as a dedication to the long way to freedom of the anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela, the father of the South-African Nation and his legacy of Equality, Unity and Forgiveness.”

    Song Lyrics

    Talking Nelson Mandela

    Talking Nelson Mandela is the name of my song:
    I sing it for your soul, friend from Africa, born to be strong,
    born to bring the light
    that's ending apartheid,
    showing humanity's might.

    Talking Nelson Mandela: you stand for liberty
    born from the truth of forgiveness that knows the unity
    of all colors and nations,
    of friend and foe alike
    in love's unending might.

    Talking Nelson Mandela: you show what has to be seen -
    the power of heart and destiny that will never cheat
    the aim of our life
    to strengthen the light
    of wisdom, love and compassion.

    Talking Nelson Mandela is the name of my song
    I sing for you on your way back to your home.
    Grow there in peace and light
    til all will call for new life
    and a new name and body.

    And then from the temple within, the next unexpected will come
    to drive out the night even stronger,
    dispel the ignorance
    with truth and love unending,
    meeting memories that will tell
    of Nelson Mandela's Love and Work on Earth,
    Love and Work,
    Love and Work on Earth.
