Playing For Change

Once in a while you are lucky enough to come across something that fills your soul with that special feeling.  You know the one that looks like Grinch’s heart growing three sizes bigger.  Great music with inspiring lyrics has provided many of those moments for me so I always try to get my regular dose of our friends Michael Franti, Chris Pierce and Brett Dennen.  This video struck me in that same deep and meaningful way.

A director went around the world and looked for various street performers and recorded them singing different songs.  This is of Stand By Me.  He used rudimentary battery operated equipment to record them live.  Then, went on to the next performer and let them listen to the music and they added to the recording.  The song is mixed with various street artists who have never met and just sang or played along to other artists:

What a connected and inspiring world we live in and what great way to remind us how we can collectively make the world a better place.  I hope you enjoy It as I much as I did and share it with your families and friends.
