Playing For Change

CONNECTING THE WORLD THROUGH MUSIC

Blog

I’d like to share an article I wrote for One.org

Three years ago an inspired film crew came to my house in the Mamelodi township and filmed me performing “One Love,” “Stand By Me,” and a few of my originals.

Over the past few years, this same film crew has traveled all over the world– from the Mamelodi township, to Santa Monica, CA to Tel Aviv, to Barcelona, to Northern Ireland and back a few times filming musicians all around the world.

The result is Playing For Change, of which I’m proud to be a part.  The beautiful videos and music that they have created show the power of music and the power to effect peace through music.

Music is a universal language that we can all understand. Visit playingforchange.com to find out about the amazing work they’re doing in South Africa and throughout the world and to see the beauty of what they have brought to the world.
