Eddie Vedder was one of many musical artists who performed at this weekend’s Global Citizen: Mandela 100, a concert in South Africa celebrating what would have been Nelson Madela’s 100th birthday.

For his set, Vedder played an old Pearl Jam b-side called “Long Road”, dedicating it to Mandela and “my brother”, late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. Accompanied by the Soweto Gospel Choir, Vedder introduced the song saying he would “sing a bit of a prayer for you”. The 1995 track was written in honour of one of Vedder’s high school teachers. Watch footage below (scroll to 6:02:00 for the Cornell tribute, 9:06:00 for the second part of his set).
