Captivating Nelson Mandela Tribute | 11 yr. old S. African | Botlhale Boikanyo

Recently ‘Upworthy‘ – a regularly delivered video digest of information about people and events whose motto is “Things that Matter, Pass ’em on” – featured this fabulous and heartwarming spoken word tribute to Nelson Mandela. It was crafted and performed by an 11 year old South African girl, Botlhale Boikanyo.  A young poet, with enchanting words and dance, she performed her tribute to Mandela on the South Africa’s Got Talent show.

Here is her fabulous performance and heartwarming tribute.
