This post is to celebrate the 30 degres celsius that hit London today. Thank you (finally) Mother Planet.

You might only know singer Angelique Kidjo for her bonus track version of We Are One in Lion King 2. But she actually deserves to be known for this beautiful version of Gershwin’ Summertime, sung in Swahili.  Click here to listen.

Ps: I am preparing a special World Cup interview of Jann from Lucky Fish, who will tell us all about vacationing in South Africa with the kids. Above is one of her inspiring family photos. Stay tuned…
