Wyclef Jean and Nelson Mandela

As world leaders honor Nelson Mandela at a memorial service in Johannesburg today, Wyclef Jean celebrates the life and legacy of the civil rights icon in song. The Fugees frontman plays guitar and sings the praises of Madiba on his acoustic dedication.

“He was ready for the fire squad/ To die for equal rights and justice/ I wrote this song/ I shook the hand of the prophet/ Nelson Mandela,” sings Wyclef, who performed for Mandela at Mandela Day in 2009.

Hear Clef’s touching tribute below.
