Listen: South African musician sings and inspires HMCC inmates

On May 10, 1994 Nelson Mandela was inaugurated. Playing at the event was South African musician Vusi Mahlasela. Earlier this month, the musician traveled to Alaska and shared his music and message with men and women at the Hiland Mountain Correctional Facility (HMCC).

The Thursday afternoon performance kicked off his cross-country tour in the United States.

Thank you to the Anchorage Concert Association for bringing such an inspiring human being to the Last Frontier and to HMCC.
