Our guide while filming in Durban, South Africa and in the township of Umlazi outside of Durban was Bekhani Mamela. Bekhani turned out to be one of the most pivotal people we collaborated with during our journey. He is the choir director and founder of Sinamuva who is featured in all but one of Playing for Change’s songs around the world. His arrangement on these songs brought us to tears. He, along with Sinamuva, is a pure representation of hope for all South Africans persevering darkness with music.

Posted on April 9, 2009

World No. 1 Rafael Nadal will defend his grasscourt title at the Queen's Club, the Aegon Championships, which he won last year fresh off the French Open title on clay.

"It was amazing," Nadal told the tournament website. "It was totally unexpected for me to win after winning in Roland Garros. I arrived and all I had was one day to adapt to grass. But I played really, really good tennis. I played relaxed, without pressure and I played really well."

Andy Roddick is another early committal for the first grasscourt event of the season after the run on red clay.

"It is nice to come back to a place where you are the last champion," Nadal said. "To arrive as the last champion is going to be a really nice experience."

Nadal beat Novak Djokovic 7-6, 7-5 in last year's final, then went on to win Wimbledon, beating Roger Federer in a five-set final.

Nadal became the first player to win the French Open, Queen's and Wimbledon in the same year.
