Hugh Masekela: "Bring Him Back Home (Nelson Mandela)"

The video of the year is not from Macklemore, JT, or Bruno Mars. Not from Lorde, Katy Perry, or Taylor Swift. No, it's footage of Hugh Masekela performing his joyous and beautiful Nelson Mandela tribute, "Bring Him Back Home," many years ago at Paul Simon's "Graceland" concert. Imprisoned when the song was written, Mandela did come home to Soweto. Now he has gone further home, to the source of righteousness and love that undergirds and ennobles our existence.
