Playing For Change: “Stand By Me”

There’s too much misery in the world. Here are some nice people doing something about it. From the award-winning documentary, “Playing For Change: Peace Through Music”, come the uplifting “Songs around the world” created by many musicians in many nations each adding their unique flavour to the song as it morphs around the globe. This cover of the Ben E. King classic “Stand by Me” started it all.

Does it for me. 🙂

It all started with vocals and guitar recorded in Santa Monica by a street musician called Roger Ridley. The producers then set off around the world with a laptop and some microphones.

Playing for Change is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music… ….musicians from all over the world are brought together to perform benefit concerts that build music and art schools in communities that are in need of inspiration and hope.
