Stand By Me

Playing for Change, spearheaded by Mark Johnson, is all about uniting the world as one human race. He believes, and I agree, that the best way to bring people together is through music. I cannot think of a more creative way to achieve world peace. Starting in Santa Montica with one street artist, Mark and his team travel the world to record musicians playing one song together, though they have never met. Their first project was recording the song Stand By Me. Here is the fantastic result:
