Nicole Scherzinger to sing at Mandela’s funeral?

9 December 2013
Nicole Scherzinger could perform at the funeral of South African anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela, it has been reported.

The former Pussycat Dolls star is claimed by The Sun to have met Mandela's daughters Zindzi and Zenani at the Mandarin Hotel in London a day after the 95-year-old passed away.

A source said: "During the chat Nicole had with the daughters it was mentioned she should sing at his funeral, or at least be a very prominent guest."

Nicole launched into an impromptu musical tribute to Mandela at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Awards last week, having just heard the news of his death.

She told the crowd there: "When I found out that Mr Nelson Mandela had passed away... it brought a tear to my eye.

"I had the honour of meeting Mr Nelson Mandela and had the great honour of singing for him."
