Nelson Mandela concert!

Hi everyone, ....

I've had the most memorable few days this past week. First I was invited to attend a dinner with Nelson Mandela, where there would be an auction for his incredible charity. ....

Elton John gave a stunning performance and we heard moving speeches from Forest Whitaker (who I luv), Gordon Brown and Bill Clinton! It was lovely to see Oprah and Gale there too. They where heading to Africa for work with Oprah's school for women out there, I admire her so much. ....

I took my aunty with me, who adores Mr. Mandela and she managed to get everyone's autograph and photo even though we weren't supposed too - lol! ....

The next day all the performers for the 90th Birthday celebration had a group photo with Mandela. I got to sit right beside the great man, wow what an honour, I couldn't quite believe it! ....

The following day was the big event and I couldn't even sleep I was so excited, honoured, nervous everything at the same time! ....

Backstage everyone was really buzzing, it was a great atmosphere. When I went out on stage the audience went back as far as I could see and everyone was so happy and singing along, it was one of my favourite performances. I had so much fun. To perform for such an amazing mans birthday and 46664 his remarkable charity is one of the highlights of my career and I hope there will be many more great causes that I can be a part of.

- Leona
