John Legend and Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys was in Australia when she learned of Nelson Mandela’s passing. To honor the anti-apartheid icon, she performed a musical tribute during her “Set the World on Fire” tour in the Yarra Valley. With some help from her tourmate John Legend, they dedicated an acoustic version of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” to Madiba.

“We wanted to do something special for you in honor of the great Nelson Mandela, who I feel so moved by in every way,” said Alicia. “What an incredible life lived and what an inspiration for us to all carry forward.”

Alicia had the privilege of performing for Mandela at the Mandela Day concert in honor of his 91st birthday. “I was in awe of a man whose soul was filled with an effortless and rare love that only comes once in a lifetime,” she said. “He was a gentle man with a beautiful smile, and deep eyes that always saw the best in humanity. His legacy lives on in all of us!”

Watch them dedicate their duet to Mandela.
