Store Clerks Sing for Tata Madiba (Mandela)

Share |

This flash mob at Woolworth's in South Africa was planning a Christmastime fundraiser but changed the song at the last minute to pay tribute to their brother and leader, Madiba (Nelson Mandela). The song is "Asimbonanga," and was written in the 1980s calling for Mandela's release from prison.

I know what you mean. I cried a bit too. It's so beautiful to hear those harmonious voices sing with love for Madiba. They so naturally started the song, came together, and then when it was over they went on back to work.
