There is this organization called Playing for Change, and let me tell you – it is FANTASTIC! Mark Johnson, the founder, decided that he would begin a world wide campaign to bring people together through music. He and his crew went anywhere and everywhere to find artists and musicians who would take part in their mission.
This project began in 2005 when Playing for Peace filmed Roger Ridley singing “Stand by Me” in Santa Monica, California, and it still is continuing today. Now, here is the catch – the artists and musicians who work together never actually met in person. The whole idea is that whether you are in Indiana, California, Louisiana, Brazil, Russia, The Congo, Venezuela, New Mexico, the Netherlands, France, South Africa, Spain or Italy – we need to all come together and work as one.
