Sitting beside Nelson Mandela in Cape Town, South Africa, this week, Michael Jackson announced two concerts to raise money for charity. The pop star, wearing a black military-style jacket and huge mirrored sunglasses, said the concerts in South Korea and Germany will benefit the Red Cross, UNESCO and the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. Stevie Wonder, Boyz II Men and others will perform with Jackson. As for Mandela, “He has certainly been my inspiration to want to do something before the end of the century,” said Jackson. “I love this man very much.” The first concert will be held June 25 in Seoul. The other will be in Munich on June 27.
