Listen to Friends of Johnny Clegg’s ‘The Crossing’ tribute

More than fifty South African artists have come together to record a special tribute to living legend, Johnny Clegg, by releasing their version of his hit single, ‘The Crossing.’

The icon is often praised for his ability to merge western pop and African rhythms, ultimately bridging the gap between the various cultures in South Africa.

The song features Karen Zoid, Karlien van Jaarsveld, Kurt Darren, Lira, and Majozi, amongst others.

In an article published by local media on Thursday, 6 December 2018, the living icon shared:

“I am speechless, thank you so much. This is an amazing moment for me – to have so many of my peers acknowledge the song and its sentiments, and that they can use that to further something much bigger than all of us. Thank you.”

The single is available for purchase on iTunes.
