Playing for Change: Message of Peace n Love

Playing for Change is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music.

Started by Mark Johnson, it covers 10 year journey of Mark and team around the world to bring people together through the power of music and creating a unique composition of songs like “Stand By Me”, “One Love” and their first original song “Don’t Worry”, which is another favorite of mine. Though I like them all, their composition, of even the classics, with musicians from around the world singing make them more interesting and that much more powerful in conveying the message of peace and love. Its an inspiring piece of work in the world we live in today.

To post it on Dublin Metblogs, it had to have some Dublin/Irish connection :), which was not over hard to find, today they released a new song “War/No More Trouble”, starting in Israel, going through Congo, South Africa and various other places around the world, ending with Bono (U2) singing in Dublin, Ireland; and some other Irish musicians part of it are:
