There is no better way to remember someone, than through music, and Nomzamo Mbatho joined hundreds of mourners at Bassline to remember and pay tribute to the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.
The mother of the nation, Winnie's life was celebrated through song and dance, a fitting tribute to a woman whose struggle for freedom had been personified in music and movement.
Nomzamo struggled to fight back tears as she sang one of Ma Winnie's favourite struggle songs.
The icon passed away at the age of 81, and the country has united in mourning for her, with hundreds of memorials being held in her name, Briefly.co.za gathered.
"One of her favourite struggle songs... My heart is full... No TV moments here. Had to exit the stage before I broke into tears," Nomzamo wrote on her Facebook page.
Ma Winnie will be given an official state funeral on April 14 at Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg.
