Playing for Change: Peace through Music

A documentary called "Playing for Change" was featured on Bill Moyers Journal a while ago and, to put it lightly, looked drop-your-pants awesome. Here's a video of the song "Stand by Me" performed by musicians from all around the world. And I do mean "from all around the world", because the artists recorded their parts in their respective countries without the benefit of being able to hear each other.

I'm serious, watch this video and if you don't get goosebumps, please leave me a comment.

Edit: I just found out that the producer, Mark Johnson, will be interviewed on the show where I work! Spooky...
