Inspired by a Movie: Idris Elba featuring George the Poet and "One"
We dip into the acting world for today's random tune. Idris Elba is an actor, producer, rapper, singer and DJ from the United Kingdom. While best known for his roles in the television show The Wire and his turn as Nelson Mandela in the film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, he recently released his 2014 album Idris Elba Presents mi Mandela, with songs inspired by the Mandela film. This song, One, features British/Ugandan spoken word artist George Mpanga, also known as George the Poet, and can be found on Idris Elba Presents mi Mandela.
