In September 2018 over 50 prominent artists came together to record a tribute to Johnny Clegg, a true South African legend who has made and continues to make an indelible mark on music history. Yesterday on the 5th of December, the song and video were played to Johnny for the very first time at a private event where he performed for friends and lifelong fans at the luxury boutique hotel, Ellerman House in Bantry Bay, Cape Town.

This same evening saw the launch of ‘Friends of Johnny Clegg’, a fund created in Johnny’s honour to help alleviate the education crisis in South Africa. All proceeds of downloads of this special version of “The Crossing” will go towards the fund. These proceeds will be distributed by the Click Foundation which helps young learners with an online English literacy programme in centres across the country, ultimately aimed at creating a better future for the youth of South Africa - a cause close to Johnny’s heart.

Kfm Mornings with Darren, Sherlin and Sibs had the honour of dropping the track first, along with a visit from Johnny Clegg himself, who was again very moved by it.
