“Salute To Mandela” from INSPIRATION
This video features the entire track of “Salute To Mandela” from my new CD, “Inspiration” set to a series of historical pictures of President Nelson Mandela. This song was written by Daniel Jackson and arranged/orchestrated by Jason Jackson.
SALUTE TO MANDELA honors South Africa’s Nelson Mandela, whose personal struggle for equality and dignity became a beacon for all nations. Daniel Jackson, who composed this tribute to Mandela, is a brilliant pianist, saxophonist, and one of my most significant musical mentors. He encouraged me to be the best I could be, and to remain true to my feelings and goals. He has always believed in me, and for that I am eternally grateful. Available on iTunes <click here>
