“It is music and dancing that makes me at peace with the world. And at peace with myself,” Mandela said to the audience. He called on Clegg to resume the song and urged all in the audience to get up and dance. At the end of the song, Mandela and Clegg, holding hands, walked off stage.
“That was the pinnacle moment for me,” Clegg recalled. “It was just a complete and amazing gift from the universe.”
