The Mines of Mozambique was probably the most powerful and moving live performance we've ever seen. It was the only number that all the artists contributed to, but Bruce's thundering guitar and commanding vocals dominated and brought the audience to their feet. His narrative in the middle of the song was mesmerizing! It was a moment we'll never forget. If anyone had forgotten the reason we were all there, this song brought it all back home.
After the show we had the opportunity to meet Bruce. There was a silent auction...the
prize was a photograph to be taken with all the artists and Sen. Patrick Leahy.
My husband bid, hoping to get a great Christmas gift for me, and he won! I
was led into a room where they were all lined up and someone tried to push
me toward Sen. Leahy. I objected, saying "But I have to be next to Bruce!"
They obliged and I was positioned next to Bruce. Thank God!! Imagine my husband's
reaction to contributing $350 to the Landmine Campaign and ending up with
a photo of Patrick Leahy and me!
