Jay Z Dedicates Song to Nelson Mandela at L.A. Concert

YouTube

As the world continues to mourn Nelson Mandela, Jay Z has paid tribute to the late South African president, who died last week at the age of 95. During his concert in Los Angeles on Monday, the rap mogul dedicated his rendition of “Forever Young” to the anti-apartheid activist.

“We want to dedicate this song to Nelson Mandela,” Jay said to fans inside the Staple Center while images of Mandela flashed on the arena’s screens. Fan video of the dedication was posted to YouTube.

He adds, “Great man, who spent 27 years in prison, came out to be president. All dreams are possible. Let that great man stand as an example of what you can do.”

In related news, Wyclef Jean has recorded an original song to pay homage to the Mandela. The guitar-driven track was posted on Jean’s official YouTube page.
