...

This morning I read in the news Miriam Makeba passed away. Standing on that stage and singing, performing untill the last day of her life. Seeing this you tube video or her "Click Song" or "Mbube" from the same concert you can understand why. She just had to.




She was amazing. I remember looking at the sleeve of her Pata Pata record, which I found in my parents LP collection when I was little. I thought she was the most beautiful woman I ever saw.
Thank you Miriam Makeba for all these beautiful songs and all those hours spent listening and dancing!
