Go To

  • There is the moment when Rodriguez and his daughters disembarked from their plane at the Cape Town airport, there on the strange invitation to play there after years of considering himself washed up as a musician. As they were walking on the tarmac, they saw group of limousines and naturally thought they were for some dignitary and they tried to get out of the way. They were wrong: those limos, and the reporters and fans, were for them.

Of course, the performance that follows is a Moment of Awesome.
