**** DAS VIDEO DER WOCHE ***** Mit diesem Beitrag möchte ich an Roger Ridley erinnern, der am 16. November 2005, im Alter von nur 57 Jahren starb.
Rogers Performance von "Stand By Me" inspirierte den Musikproduzenten und Tontechniker Mark Johnson, das Projekt "Playing for Change" ins Leben zu rufen.
Von den anderen Strassenmusikern in der 3th Street Promenade von Santa Monica in Kalifornien, wurde Roger Ridley als "Gottes Stimme" bezeichnet. ***** Stand By Me | Original Performance by Roger Ridley | Playing For Change | Live Outside *****
In 2005, we recorded Roger Ridley on the streets of Santa Monica playing "Stand By Me."
This original live performance was the starting point of our first Song Around The World which has surpassed 120 million views since it was first uploaded to YouTube 10 years ago today.
As we celebrate this milestone, we are happy to share this unreleased video of the moment that started it all.
Thank you for continuing to support Playing For Change and for always standing by us. ***** Das daraus entstandende Video - Das 1. welches im November 2008 auf YT veröffentlicht wurde ***** Stand By Me | Playing For Change | Song Around The World ***** ABOUT PLAYING FOR CHANGE:
Playing For Change (PFC) is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World. Creating these videos motivated PFC to form the Playing For Change Band—a tangible, traveling representation of its mission, featuring musicians met along their journey; and establish the Playing For Change Foundation—a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building music and art schools for children around the world. Through these efforts, Playing For Change aims to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet. ***** Stand By Me | Playing For Change Band | Live in Brazil 2014(The ending is so great) ***** Stand By Me - Playing For Change Band en las calles de Buenos Aires 05.11.2015 *****
