Lil Kim teamed up with Cyndi Lauper for a duet of Lauper’s ‘Time After Time” with a sprinkling of Kim’s “Put Your Lighter’s Up”performed in honor of Nelson Mandela during “The Mandela Day Concert – A 46664 Celebration” at Radio City Music Hall. Proceeds from the concert went to support 46664, the humanitarian campaign named after Mandela’s prison ID number.
“Our struggle for freedom and justice was a collaborative effort,” Mandela said in a taped message. “‘Mandela Day’ is no different. It is in your hands to create a better world.”
It was an odd pairing and I, personally, woulda never thought of Kimmie as a singer, but she didn’t do quite as horrible as I would have envisioned. I mean…it’s not something I’d be playing in my headphones but it was definitely entertaining to say the least!
