A music video done by South African artists as a tribute to a legend of SA music, Johnny Clegg, is getting unbelievable attention as it personifies the real heart and soul of our country and represents a compelling picture of unity. Read more about Friends of Johnny Clegg below.
http://www.friendsofjohnnyclegg.com – In 2018 a group of well-known musicians came together to celebrate the life and work of Johnny Clegg and recorded a special version of his song – THE CROSSING. All proceeds will go to the ‘Friends of Johnny Clegg Fund’ for primary education. The fund is all about changing lives of young learners all across South Africa, through literacy programmes and using technology in education to pursue outcomes-based interventions. The Fund is managed by The Click Foundation who will distribute funds to their various centers across South Africa.
