So Long, Mama Africa

miriam-makeba"I will sing until the last day of my life." 

And she did.

Sultry songstress, activist, wife of a revolutionary, the world lost a legend yesterday.

But her music will live on...

 

My favorite song.

I saw an article in the paper this morning on her death and thought about you.

Her music apparently wont live on. I clicked on the video and got the message "we're sorry this video is no longer available". Grr.

It could also be your internet connection. Sometimes when mine is being bad, I get that message on good videos.
I specifically looked for a CC licensed video so that I wouldn't have the take-down problem.
