I recently received a music clip that (I think) is so beautiful and poignant, a friend of mine said it made him "feel proud to be human".
I hope you can all open and listen to it!!!
Thank you so much for sharing this video. It made me feel good on so many levels. I shared it on facebook too. Do you know anything about who put it together and how it was orchestrated?
I know -- I felt the same way when watching it! I wish I had more detailed information, as to the origin/process, available to me; however, my friend sent me the link and nothing else. I don't believe she has any more info than you or I do.
I will try to do a little research on it and see what I come up with.
I think we have the information we are looking for! This musical collaboration comes from an organization called Playing for Change which is "dedicated to connecting the world through music".
For more information, visit their website: http://www.playingforchange.com/pop2.html.
An organization/musical piece such as this one really does aptly represent the concept of a "World Pulse" -- wouldn't you agree? :)
Thank you so much for finding this information! And thanks again for sharing this beautiful song and imagery.
I wonder if we have any talented musicians on the WorldPulse forum (WE MUST!!!).
Perhaps we should contact this organization and see if WorldPulse might collaborate with them on a global women's musical piece.
That would be fantastic!!
What great yang for our community! Thank you for sharing.
I love the Stand by Me video and have been passing it around myself. One of our members, Fatima, passed along this video which (as she said) captures the whole essence of World Pulse i.e lending a helping hand. The boy is Declan Galbraith, British and is known for singing inspiring songs like this. She believes he is 14 years old now.

I just found the Playing for Change music last week! I've downloaded the whole package from iTunes. It's the most uplifting music I've listened to in a while! "One Love" is my favourite.
That is great to hear you are enjoying the music! I agree that it is very uplifting and I love how the music is so globally inspired and executed!
Today was my first visit to this group and after listening to this song, I am having a real fresh feeling in my mind and I have realized that no matter what happens, there are some people who are going to "Stand By Me".
Love From- Tanzina Ahmed Choudhury
I'm so glad to hear that, Tanzina! We should all be lucky enough to have people in our lives who will stand by us through thick and thin...
On another note, welcome to the group!
