Former South African President Thabo Mbeki Attends Carmen Lundy Concert at Joy of Jazz Festival

Carmen Lundy had the honor and extreme pleasure of meeting Former President of South Africa Thabo Mbeki and his wife when they attended Carmen's concert at the Joy of Jazz Festival in Johannesburg, South Africa. Specifically there to hear Carmen Lundy's set, Mbeki asked to meet Carmen afterwards, and she and Elisabeth Oei joined them in their private quarters and even shared a light meal! Truly a memorable and life changing experience to meet such a distinguished and humble man. Special thanks goes to our new friend Lupi Ngcayisa for making the introduction.
