Brandy performed for 40 people in a 90,000 seat stadium

brandysouthafricaBrandy was the surprise closing act during the Nelson Mandela Sport and Culture Day this past weekend in South Africa. The problem was that it was so much of a surprise that almost everyone in the 90,000 seat stadium left and they turned the stadium lights off. From Guardian:
