Nelson Mandela remembered ...

This is so beautiful that I just had to share it with you. Please take a moment to hit play, sit back and enjoy it too.

The Soweto Gospel Choir had scheduled a performance of James Brown's I Feel Good last weekend, but when Nelson Mandela died on Dec. 5 at age 95, their plans changed.

Dressed as employees at a Woolworths grocery story in Pretoria, members of the choir surprised shoppers with a stirring rendition of Asimbonanga, a Mandela tribute song from 1987 by musician Johnny Clegg.

Woolworths said "On Saturday, 7 December 2013, Woolworths had planned a performance at our Parkview store in Pretoria to support our Operation Smile Christmas campaign. The Soweto Gospel Choir's planned a rendition of James Brown's I Feel Good. But, after Madiba's passing the choir decided on a tribute instead. They chose Johnny Clegg's Asimbonanga"
