You may have heard of this organization, or you may not have, but I came across this yesterday and it blew me away. I wanted to share with all of you this awesome, awesome force for peace and creativity! These people are trying to reach everyone and effect real change for peace and helping others (helping Tibetan refugees, for example) through the power of music, by recording well-known songs from different people around the world.
Music has been called the “Universal Language” and after watching even one of the three videos listed below, I think you’ll agree. They’re all great songs, and you probably know at least one of them. I really, really like what they did with “One Love”, but then, I’ve been a Bob Marley fan for a long time. The guy Grampa Elliot from New Orleans has some other videos on YouTube, and I think he is just great! Give a listen…and if you like it, check out the site, The Playing For Change Foundation.
