Israeli-born Miri Ben Ari, who has won a Grammy for her experimental fusion of classical soul and dance music, will headline the 14th World Summit of Nobel Peace Price Laureates in October. The event will be held in Cape Town, South Africa, and will be in honor of the late Nelson Mandela. Her new song, “Freedom” will headline the event, and along with Nelson Mandela’s son, Kweku Mandela, she filmed a video for the song. She will be performing alongside the Cape Town Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and the University of West Cape Creative Arts Choir.
