Soccer Friday! It's here!

Greetings from a very cold South Africa! Today is the day we have been waiting for, for six years! All eyes are on South Africa! Welcome World! We are so excited! Last night was the kick of concert at Orlando stadium in Soweto. Although I did not get to go, I watched at home and cheered! The spirit shown at the concert was amazing! Here are some pictures from last night. Sorry, they are bad quality, but I took photos of the TV.
Shakiera singing the official Word Cup song "Waka Waka"

K'naan singing the Coca Cola Word Cup Song "Just like the wavin' flag"
My favourite South African Band The Parlotones
Many South African fans as well as fans from other nations

The crowd was fantastic!

That was a few of the images. Among the artists were, the Black Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys a few African artists and a band from South America. It was a fantastic display of unity! 
I will keep you posted. 
Go Bafana Bafana! Go South Africa! Wahoo!
