Une Planète, Une Chanson...

Music at its' best...
One of my best friends (who knows me really well)
sent me this:
"This should be required viewing for everyone.
It’s basic humanity in it’s finest form.
In spite of world governments, politicians and corporations
doing all they can to destroy the spirit in people,
along comes this beautiful video..."
with the following links:
Mark Johnson explains how Playing For Change began and
how the journey has gone thus far...

Definately the best version of Ben E. King's classic
I've ever heard..!

+ the latest episode:
I don't know what you'll all make of it,
but the whole project
blew me away..!
It is nothing short of moving, inspirational,
and technologically impressive...

this is wonderful! i think i saw an interview on bill moyers about this and i remember sitting in awe over, not only the brilliant idea, but the incredible way their being and their songs touch the heart, deeply. thank you so much for reminding me of this. i tend to forget, and i want to remember the goodies in life.

thanks so much for your comment you shared on my blog. have a quick look at my response if you have a minute. i just appreciate what you shared...
