Playing for Change: Higher ground

I first saw the Playing for Change project when they released the “Stand by me” video in 2008.  Its a powerful video and today is followed by a similar approach to Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground.” They also did a great Redemption Song and Give me Shelter – see below.

About Playing for Change:

“The Playing For Change Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to creating positive social change through music education. We are driven by the belief that peace and change are possible through the universal language of music. By providing children a safe place to learn, flourish and express themselves, PFCF programs provide a creative alternative to the struggles many children face daily.

To date, seven music schools and programs have been created in countries including South Africa, Ghana, Mali, Rwanda, and Nepal. Each offers students the mentorship and guidance they need to grow and thrive through interactions with other students, schools, teachers, and musical cultures. The 1st annual Playing For Change Day is a unique opportunity to advance our mission by fostering even greater connections as we come together to Play for Change.”
