I received this in an email a few days ago and just got a chance to watch it. It literally sent chills down my spine, and my eyes welled up with tears. Watch how the power of one song can connect people from all around the world.
For his documentary “Playing or Change: Peace Through Music,”
filmmaker Mark Johnson traveled through four continents and
recorded various musicians–some from unexpected quarters–
playing “Stand By Me.”

Each musician was charged with layering a single song
over the previous artist thus building upon it. Over thirty
musicians globally participated in this project and not one
artist knew the other or came in contact initially.
