Watch Eddie Vedder’s Surprise Performance at South African High School | Video

Back in 2005, Eddie Vedder released The Molo Sessions, an album recorded with The Walmer High School Choir of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. All proceeds from the LP went to help fund local schools in South Africa.

S.African minister in leaked sex video rejects calls to quit

Johannesburg (AFP) – South Africa’s embattled home affairs minister said Sunday he would not resign after the country’s public standards watchdog said he lied under oath and following the leaking of a private sex video.
