    Live 8 Africa Calling




    2 July 2005

    Nelson Mandela spoke to me

    Of hope, of despair

    Of promise, of poverty




    Africa called

    And I listened

    Hand in hand with my hope

    Her awareness christened




    Africa called

    With melody

    China clay pit in Cornwall

    Eden awash with family




    Africa called

    With harmony

    Celebration of talent

    Musical dignity




    Africa called

    Bringing wonder

    Singing with solidarity

    To stop debt plunder




    Africa called

    With joy and rhythm

    Daara J's beats

    I carried home within




    Africa called

    For dignity

    Seven seconds Youssou N'Dour

    New humanity




    Africa called

    With clarity

    Called for justice

    Not charity




    Africa called

    And brought a party

    Heart of Africa

    Came to me




    Never look away

    I recall his plea

      his recent comments about Africa were narrow minded and foolish I wanted to focus on Africa not his words

    Yes. I am glad you wrote this. Narrow minded and foolish is right and your work is quite the opposite!
