What The Mandela Banquet Was Like

At last night’s dinner for Nelson Mandela, Oprah Winfrey was seated between Sir Elton and Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton.

The evening, during which Elton serenaded the icon with ”Happy Birthday,” and the Soweto Gospel Choir performed,  raised £5 million for Mandela’s charities.

The guest list included Robert De Niro, Uma Thurman, Neil Diamond, Bob Geldof, Cherie Blair and Richard Branson, alongside some of the musical talents who will entertain at tomorrow night’s charity concert.

Below is a photo of Elton and Oprah, followed by one of him with De Niro.
