One year after the death of the great man known to all who loved him as Madiba, Artists Project Earth is proud to honour and celebrate his incredible life with our new fund-raising EP – Remember Mandela – featuring Rokia Traore, Mumford and Sons and Amy Winehouse.
Madiba showed us through his own example that we can ‘be the change we want to see in the world’. Sometimes, when it seems the odds are stacked against us, it is all to easy to give up the fight for a better world, but as Madiba told us, “It always seems impossible until it is done.”
This is why Madiba is still such a shining light for the world; when we look at the myriad injustices being perpetrated on people and planet in the name of progress or economic wealth, it seems impossible to stem the tide of destruction – but Madiba reminds us through his own life journey, that the impossible is possible! We can reverse devastating climate change if we act now; we can clean up the oceans and conserve endangered species if we act now; we can provide renewable energy, clean development and meaningful work for all – if we ACT NOW.
Madiba is our enduring inspiration – as he said, “Education is the most powerful weapon that you can use to change the world,” and as our homage to him, we will continue to raise awareness of climate change and its impacts on earth, oceans and people through the medium of music and the arts.
All funds raised from the sale of this EP will be divided between the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund and also APE’s Climate Change Disaster Relief Programmes. Please help support this great cause. Click here for more details.
