Nicole to sing at Mandela’s funeral

DHAKA: The former Pussycat Doll has reportedly held a secret visit with the late revolutionary’s daughters at London’s Mandarin Hotel and they discussed a potential performance.

An insider told The Sun on Sunday newspaper, ‘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’, reports

The ‘X Factor’ UK judge once sang for the political activist, choosing to perform ‘Precious Lord’, but she recently joked he was less than impressed with her rendition.

She previously said, ‘I had the honour of meeting him and I sang him my favourite hymn ‘Precious Lord’. But I don’t think he liked it as afterwards he said, Have you got anything else?’

A number of celebrities paid tribute when he passed away on Thursday, including Nicole’s ‘X Factor’ boss Simon Cowell, who tweeted his thoughts.

He wrote, ‘So sad to hear about Nelson Mandela. Rest in peace’. Meanwhile, superstar Rihanna took to Instagram to pay her respects.
