Please, Please, Please, No More Dead Mamas - R.I.P. 'Mama Africa' - Miriam Makeba

Is it possible to feel both awe and respect coupled with complete resentment at the cycle of life? Of course it's possible because that's how I feel. Miriam Makeba collapsed on stage last night in Italy after singing her famous song, 'Pata Pata.' This is her singing 'Pata Pata' in the prime of her life - Brazil, 1968.

This one is dedicated to all of those whose mother's - including those who thought of Miriam Makeba as 'Mama Africa' - have passed on.
