Let's Take This Video Viral!!!!

I received an email with a link to this music video in it.  After watching it three times I am still getting goosebumps.  Today, rather than a blog of my own ideas, I want to share someone else's.  Kudos to the person or team behind this concept, kudos to their hard work and more than anything kudos to the final product.  For anyone who loves street muscians, live music in it's purist form, it is a joy to listen to.  This is the intro that came with the email.

Below is a link to one of the best pieces of sound engineering you are likely to hear.  This is a video of street singers from around the world being recorded, overlayed and mixed with one another while singing the song "Stand By Me".  It is fabulous to listen to and watch - they all deserve to be heard. The finished product is tremendous!

I am more than proud to share with you - Stand By Me!!!!


Update -

I want to thank Garry Kettleson for sending me the following background information on the above video as well as a link to the organization that recorded it - 

"This video is actually part of the Playing for Change Project ( and foundation ) started by American Producer and Sound Engineer Mark Johnson in 2004 ..the project has gained international participation and recognition with Playing for Change artists collectively playing at various International Music Festivals over the past few years..." Here is the link he sent me with full information. http://www.playingforchange.com/journey/introduction.
