STAND BY ME! PLAYING FOR CHANGE

Stand By Me. Playing for Change By Roger Ridley and other Musicians




And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said,
Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem,
so must thou bear witness also at Rome.





Truly friends this is a must view! You'll appreciate this singers transparent zeal, the song's sentiment, the powerful global experience on video and the concept behind the mission of the Playing for Change Campaign, something you may wish to support. I trust God that it was no accident that when I should have turned off the computer and rested my weary soul, a video caught my eye of Mr. Roger Ridgley, I clicked the triangle and was captured. I was mesmerized by the video of Stand By Me and really appreciative that Mr. Mark Johnson founder of Playing for Change realized that this musician's humanity and yes, his soul stirring voice and others was not to be ignored. I am sure you'll agree these are no ordinary street musicians and certainly no commonplace fundraising campaign. Learn all about it:

"Roger Ridley and his music embody everything that music is : soul, perseverance, and talent. He has often been called "the voice of God" by the other street musicians on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, California. His dedication to his audience is clear, traveling from his home in Las Vegas, Nevada to his spot in Santa Monica every Saturday and giving his best performance before returning home that night. It was Roger's performance of Stand By Me that sent Playing for Change1 off on its mission to connect the world through music by adding other musicians to his recording.

One day while walking down the promenade, Mark Johnson2, creator of "Playing for Change" heard Roger singing "Stand By Me" in the distance. He ran to witness the performance and realized that Roger's voice, soul, and passion had to be shared with the rest of the world.

Playing for Change is a multimedia movement created to inspire,
connect, and bring peace to the world through music. The idea for this project rose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race. And with this truth firmly fixed in our minds, we set out to share it with the world."
