World celebrates Madiba's birthday!

Today is International Mandela's Day. 
News, famous people and leaders from all over the world have expressed their best wishes to Nelson Mandela on his 95th birthday today. He's still in a hospital in Pretoria, the administrative capital of South Africa, because his health is weak. 
But, why is Nelson Mandela so important?
Because  he went to prison for 27 years and he stood up  just for what he believed in. He believed that black people should have as many rights as white people. He sas offered to get out of prison but only if he gave up fighting for what he believed in but he refused!
So, from this blog I want to celebrate his birthday by sharing with you this video from BBC. 
Children in South Africa sing to celebrate Nelson Mandela's Birthday!
