The Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 will take place in Johannesburg with performances by The Carters, Usher, Pharrell Williams and more. The festival will honor South Africa's first black president, Nelson Mandela, and his legacy a century after he was born. Nelson Mandela died in 2013 at the age of 95.

Here's a clip from the band rehersals below: 



Ahead of her performance, Mrs. Carter penned a powerful open letter to Nelson Mandela.

"It is an honor for me to travel to South Africa this week in celebration of you and your efforts to right so many wrongs," she wrote.

She talked about the first time she met Nelson Mandela and how it impacted her.

"I recall your measured but focused steps in as you recounted the stories of the struggles, the sacrifices and your resilience," she wrote. "You smiled as you talked to a crowd of artists and their guests, including my mother, who first told my sister and me about the great Nelson Mandela. In that moment I truly understood your heart and humility."
