David Paich:

Several years ago I was asked by a friend of mine to go and perform Africa at the United Nations, when they gave Bishop Desmond Tutu the lifetime achievement award. They had Paul Simon’s back-up band there as well.  I played and sang Africa for all these representatives of countries around the world, from places like Kenya, Cameroon, and Nigeria.  There I was, looking out at all these people, ambassadors and presidents sitting right in front of me.  That was a real honor and a highlight of my life.

And I still hear the drums echoing tonight…
