Subject: RE: Obit: RIP Miriam Makeba (10 November 2008)
There is not one singer of folk, trad, or any music for that matter, who does not owe a debt of gratitude to Sister Miriam Makeba. God be good to her, and thanks for leaving us such a legacy. Her voice is the voice of Africa, and all of that great continents grandchildren around the world.

And thanks be for allowing her to leave us as she wanted to ... after a concert onstage and singing. What a blessing!!

All the best, Mama Africa,

Mick
