I had the opportunity to visit South Africa on several occasions. It became one of my favorite places in the world. I had the chance to visit many places including Robben Island where he was held and the Saxon hotel where he wrote his memoirs upon his release from prison. I even visited the home he lived in before his arrest way back when. There are few people that are willing to give up all for the gain of many. Nelson Mandela certainly fits that description. Maze and Frankie Beverly recognized his greatness and recorded “Mandela” in 1989, the year before his eventual release.
