pierre de charmoy _choir madiba song

To mark Madiba’s passing, the hauntingly beautiful song 'Tribute to Madiba'has now been released worldwide.

Accompanied by the Inanda Seminary School choir, Pierre de Charmoy, South Africa's top-selling solo artist from the 1980's, is back on the international stage with 'Tribute to Madiba', an inspirational song that laments the loss to the world of Nelson Mandela.

Recently released as a single on iTunes, Rhapsody and Amazon MP3 with the music video posted on YouTube and Facebook (Tribute to Madiba), the lyrics capture Nelson Mandela’s the spirit and positive influence on the modern world:

Painted a rainbow from your cell

Hard labour in a living hell

You fought for peace and liberty

Endured to set all people free

If there ever was a man to change the world

Madiba it was you

Then came the day of your release

Instead of war you spoke of peace

You reached out to your jailer’s hand

For all the world a righteous man

Now the world has lost the son who could not hate

Who taught us how to love

How to cry

How to live our lives

Your legacy is hard to bear

The road to freedom isn’t clear

The world will always need a man

Like you Madiba with your plan

Now the world has lost the son who could not hate

Who taught us how to love

How to cry

How to live our lives
