This week, I heard about an amazing documentary called “Playing for Change: Peace through Music” by Mark Johnson and his crew at PlayingForChange.com. The movie, still in production, documents the efforts to bring street musicians from around the world—along with some celebrities, both living and dead—together to harmonize and synchronize on a handful of powerful songs. (My favorites are “War/No More Trouble” and “Stand By Me.”) In an effort to practice what they preach, Playing For Change Foundation was formed as an international non-profit to bring funding to music and art schools to some of the most struggling corners of the globe.
Playing For Change is an organization that speaks the truth as a beautiful mouthpiece for the underprivileged, giving voice not just to their troubles, but also their deepest longings for betterment.
