It is not often that a music legend leaves us before death takes them. Mzansi musicians decided to come together, as one, to celebrate the incredible moments and timeless contributions that music legend, Johnny Clegg has given us.
Briefly.co.za has learnt that, after an incredible 40 odd years of blessing Mzansi with music that has sung, and still sings, songs of purpose, Johnny Clegg has sadly closed the door.
Pancreatic cancer hit him in 2015. He is currently in remission, but had to make the tough decision to tone things down.
In light of this, a bunch of Mzansi musicians have gotten together to create a heart-warming tribute called, The Crossing.
It features 50 super talented Mzansi artists who understand the timeless imprint that Johnny Clegg and his music, have left.
Andre Venter , Lira, Karen Zoid, Tresor , Bobby van Jaarsveld , Kurt Darren, Zolani Mahola, and Abigail Kubeka, are just some of the artists that feature on this thoughtful tribute.
The Crossing, was officially released on Wednesday. All proceeds from the tribute will go to helping fight the education crisis in South Africa by means of the 'Friends of Johnny Clegg' fund.
