What happens when you mix the Power of Connection with technology?
This amazing five-minute video featuring “Stand by Me” (Ben E. King) is one answer, and I want to thank my cousin Alice in Louisiana for sharing it. It features “musicians around the world adding their part to the song as it traveled the globe.”
From the PlayingForChange.com site:
“Playing for Change is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music. The idea for this project arose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race. And with this truth firmly fixed in our minds, we set out to share it with the world…Together, we will connect the world through music!”
