Mama Africa dies age 76

Since Pata Pata in 1977, the African singer Miriam Makeba has been known as "Mama Africa" due to her struggle against the Apartheid and for Africans’ rights. I had the honor of enjoying her music live when I still lived in the North. She died last night, age 76, after she had had a heart attack on stage. Befitting her life and personality, she died during a performance supporting the fight against the Italian mafia. RIP.
