Presented by CNA, the Johnny Clegg Digital Tribute Concert will feature fellow musicians that will commemorate his life and his music on July 31, 2020, at 20h00 (GMT+2).

The world is full of strange behaviour

Every man has to be his own saviour

I know I can make it on my own if I try

But I'm searching for a great heart to stand me by

Underneath the African sky

A great heart to stand me by

Johnny Clegg had the special quality of being able to unite people across all backgrounds and generations with his music. His music has always been a beacon of hope and inspiration and in a time when South Africans and the world need it the most, the lyrics to Great Heart stand true.

In a fitting tribute to one of the most iconic figures in South African music history, the Johnny Clegg Tribute Show is going digital, featuring some of South Africa’s top performers and never seen before footage from Johnny Clegg's life. This digital experience will be held on July 31, from the comfort of your own home.
