46664: The Concert 2005 features highlights of the 46664 South Africa concert that took place as part of World Aids Day 2005.
Actor and hip-hop star Will Smith presents the programme and MCs the event. The particular focus of the concert, in line with the theme of World AIDS Day, is to promote the recognition that women are now bearing the brunt of the HIV/AIDS pandemic with the fastest increase in infections.
This one-hour special features music and moving contributions from Will Smith, Annie Lennox, Katie Melua, Queen and Paul Rodgers, a selection of African artists and, of course, Nelson Mandela himself.
Mandela comments during the show: "You may well ask, what is this old age pensioner doing here tonight when he is supposed to have retired. Yes, I would love to enjoy the peace and quiet of retirement, but I know that like many of you, I cannot rest easily while our beloved continent is ravage by a deadly epidemic.
"We hold the future of this continent in our hands. Let us use the universal language of music to sing out our message around the world. Aids is no longer just a disease, it is a human rights issue."
Nelson Mandela launched the 46664 campaign in 2002 to highlight the emergency of HIV/AIDS through unique live events and music related projects. 46664 was Mandela’s prison number during his 18 year internment on Cape Town’s Robben Island. Today the number symbolises the worldwide initiative that aims to raise global awareness of HIV and AIDS and fight the largest pandemic the world has ever faced.
