A Day in the Life of Gilberto Gil

Ah, the internet: From this article in the Rochester (NY) Democrat and Chronicle I saw that Gilberto Gil had been named one of Brazil's official Hans Christian Andersen Goodwill Ambassadors. If you click here, you can watch a somewhat embarrassed Gil accept this highly specific honor, then deliver a brief speech to several delighted Danes in which he recites the English lyrics to his song "Nightingale," which evidently scored him his Ambassadorship.

Exciting, no?
