As you probably heard if you follow unparodiable monsters Darren Rovell and Nikki Finke on Twitter, Nelson Mandela died yesterday. That said, R. Kelly wrote a song about Mandela, “Soldier’s Heart,” that he performed for the former South African president in 2009. Last night on Arsenio, Kelly talked about meeting Mandela and then performed the song he wrote for him.
The performance is embedded above. Below is a clip of Kelly and Arsenio discussing Mandela. Enjoy.
