The Playing for Change Community is a group of artists and inspired people brought together to connect the world through music. People play music all over the globe and the impact it has on all of our souls is something we share.
The idea for Playing for Change came to Mark Johnson one day as he was going to work in New York City. He came upon a performance of two monks painted all in white from head to toe. He saw about 200 people of varying races,genders and cultures sourrouding the monks. It occurred to him at that moment that music is the key to a better world. He took up this calling and has been making films ever since to inspire everyone on the planet to come together as one.
The Playing for Change journey of discovery celebrates the freedom and the lives of street musicians everywhere. I saw the video this morning via an ODE e-mail. I found it very moving and had to share it with you all. Please support Playing for Change and their goal of creating a musical revolution in the world, one that will help to inspire and improve communities everywhere.
