The concerts are all almost over, but now the real work and committment starts. The concerts were a tremendous success the world over, but they only served to highlight the plight of poverty the world over. Here are some photos of the Johannesburg concert. (apologies for the poor quality, the cell phone is not really effective as a camera).
The Live8 concerts around the world kick off tomorrow, the first one in Johannesburg. I will be
there bright and early tomorrow morning. The venue is actually quite small, I wonder if they will
fit 40000 people in there. Information of the line-up is quite sketchy but hopefully the popular
acts will be there. My house is not far from the concert venue so I am sure that I will even be able
to hear the commotion from the square.
I am hopeful that the concerts will be a success. Africa is beginning to find her voice, this is
just one more conversation that is taking place. I hope that not only will many participate in the
conversation, but that many will also stop to listen. LET AFRICA SPEAK!!!
