A special BB&G celebration for the life of Miriam Makeba who passed away doing what she loved best, performing on stage.

Miriam was not just a performer, but a reformer who was banned from her country of South Africa during the apartheid struggle for over 30 years.

Miriam performed with some of the best in the world including Dizzy Gillespie and Harry Belafonte.  She performed for President Mandela as well as John F. Kennedy.  She truly was a world treasure.

You can sing with the angels now!  We will miss you.
