Eddie Vedder Flying On Private Jet For ‘Secret’ Project Revealed


A new Herald Live article detailed Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder recently reuniting with his Walmer High School collaborators from The Molo Sessions.

Remember the time Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder came to town to sing to pupils and plant trees at Walmer High School? No?

That is because the superstar flew, in his private jet, quietly into Port Elizabeth earlier in December, swearing all those in the know to secrecy.

A “state of love and trust” for former Walmer High School pupils and choir members saw Vedder, his wife Jill McCormick and two daughters, arrive on Wednesday last week for a morning visit to the school, with which he recorded The Molo Sessions album in 2004.

Vedder was in South Africa as part of the lineup of international artists performing at the Global Citizen Festival.

The article also states:

Lindezwa Nkrankra, 33, who was a grade 10 pupil and member of the choir in 2004, said: “Seeing him again was wonderful and inspiring.

“And while I did start studying hospitality at a tertiary level, I was forced to drop out due to personal reasons.

“But those reasons have since been sorted out and seeing Eddie has inspired me to complete my studies soon.”
