Once and for all, please honor the purpose of Mandela Day by doing random acts of kindness, no matter how small, as often as you can. Together, we can make the world a better place.
My series of photos from Mandela Day, a 46664 Celebration, that took place at Radio City Music Hall in NYC on July 18, 2009 has been almost as popular as the event itself. I am pleased to show you all some worldwide exclusive photos from the grand finale all star jam.
The purpose of Mandela Day is to perform random acts of kindness, no matter how small, as often as possible.
On July 18, 2009 at Radio City Music Hall in New York, artists from all over the world came together to perform at Mandela Day, a 46664 celebration.
In one of the most random pairings in recent memory, Cyndi Lauper and Lil Kim performed Cyndi’s hit “Time After Time.”

By looking at these photos, you must promise to honor the purpose of Mandela Day: to make this world a better place by doing random acts of kindness, no matter how small, as often as possible.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, here’s a sample of what you can expect to see in upcoming posts about this historic concert that I just witnessed. For his 91st birthday, stars from the music world gathered at New York’s Radio City Music Hall to pay tribute to former prisoner number 46664 and world rights activist, Nelson Mandela. If you like these worldwide exclusive pix, keep checking back for photos of Whoopi Goldberg, Gloria Gaynor, Jesse McCartney, Will i. Am, Wyclef Jean, Baba Maal, Zucchero and more!

I just witnessed history for the second time in 2 days! Last night, I saw Sir Paul McCartney perform the first ever concert at Citi Field (the new Shea Stadium) and tonight, I saw the Mandela Day 46664 show at Radio City Music Hall. Because there were so many great artists performing tonight, I’ll be dedicating a new post to each one, but in the meanwhile, enjoy this picture from the All-Star Jam at the end of the show. Who were the performers you ask? Gloria Gaynor, Angelique Kidjo, Baba Maal, Alicia Keys, Jesse McCartney (no relation to Sir Paul), Wyclef Jean, Zucchero, Will i. Am, Cyndi Lauper, Lil Kim, Queen Latifah, Dave Stewart, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Josh Groban, Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder! The A-List presenters included Tim Robbins, Whoopi Goldberg, Susan Sarandon, Forrest Whitaker, Morgan Freeman and Billie Jean King.
The purpose of Mandela Day is not just to celebrate the birthday of one of the world’s greatest humanitarians, but also to encourage all of us to do random acts of kindness, no matter how small, to help make the world a better place. Promise yourself (we’ll all look away whilst you do that), that you’ll do your part.
